My photo
A very warm welcome to my teeny, tiny part of the huge world of blogging. This is where I share my passion for making hand made greeting cards. So - why "Always with a Heart"? Well this is for two reasons. Firstly, it is because every card I produce carries a heart on it somewhere. This can be big and bold or small and almost hidden - the fun sometimes is just trying to find it! Secondly it is because I put my heart into everything I produce. I hope that any visitors enjoy seeing what I post. If you drop by then please leave me a comment so that I know you called. It would be nice to know that you have found my heart in what I do.

Photographs in the Darkness

Hi everyone

Sounds like the name of a song or an Album doesn't it - "Photographs in the Darkness" - but no - it is just me up to my usual tricks and taking "photographs in the darkness"!!!!

Tonight's card is one that has been on the back burner for a little while.

My great crafty blog buddy Jackie kindly did a swap with me and send me "Henry Mouse" to have a play with. I painted him almost straightaway with my watercolour crayons but didn't get to finish the card until today.

That is because today I had a little delivery via the postman from Elzybells. Just what I needed to make little Henry complete.

So here we go:

To make this card I used:

Image - Whiff of Joy - Henry Mouse (thank you Jackie x)
Background stamp - Elzybells "Indulgence Multi"
Background paper - Funky Fairy "Hope Papers"
X Cut punch for my little "hugs and kisses"
Crafty Notions - Rainbow Drops
Ribbon from my stash
Diamond Stickles (it has been sulking because it hasn't made an appearance on the last few posts so I thought I should bring it out again today)

So there we go. One quick card once the right background appeared for me.

Take care everyone.

Love Jules xxx

Really cute card, love they way you coloured your image. Thank you for the comment on my post, it is reassuring to know it's not only me who thinks the quality is not right for that price. Only wish I had seen on in the flesh before buying, just have to put it down to experience.:-)

Thanks again.
