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.

It is true - I am in love!!

Hi Everyone

Well here it is .. .. .. .. Friday evening again!!! Yippee!!! Lots I want to do (AGAIN) this weekend.

So in my excitement I have made a creation.

Those of you who have followed my blog for a while may remember that I declared my love for Messy Rabbit. Well my passion is still running strong.

I love Messy Rabbit very, very much .. .. .. but not any of his friends!!! He is the "one and only".

At the start of this creation I thought I might be able to create a card and also enter it into the new Promarkers Challenge Blog .. .. but I am not sure. I just cannot get the hang of all that shading and detailed work. My colouring is more "blocks of colour". But never mind. Perhaps I will be able to learn some techniques from the new blog.

Not only is my colouring perhaps not up to scratch .. .. .. how on earth can I enter a card that used 13 different colours!!! Not that I am superstitious .. .. .. .. .. just that surely I could have coloured an image of Joseph in his Technicolour Dreamcoat with this many pens. Not just Messy Rabbit with his carrots!!! (Most people have listed 5 or 6 colours on their creations LOL!!!).

Well here it is. Messy Rabbit without his Technicolour Dreamcoat .. ..

This creation used:

Image: Messy Rabbit - MR124 Gardener
Backing paper: Sorry I don't know - it came from Hobbycraft in a little package full of heart papers (can't imagine why I bought these .. .. tee hee!!).
Brads from my stash box

Oh .. .. .. and 13 Promarker Pens!!!

Looking forward to a few challenges over the weekend. I told myself I wasn't going to get drawn into these .. .. .. but I am so weak!!

Have a wonderful weekend everyone.

The weather is promising to be special so let's make the most of it .. .. .. craft in the garden!!!

Love Jules xx

Great card Jules, you colouring looks great to me. You can enter any card in the PFP challenge as long as you have used at least one Promarker. Give it a go. x
