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.

Penny Black Challenge - Shapes X3

Hi Everyone

Yeah - my craft fest starts here.. .. ..

Hoping to have a great day creating today whilst hubby is at football.

First creation finished this morning is my Penny Black Challenge entry. This week it was called "Shapes X3".

This meant your creation (and it didn't have to be a card) needed to include at least 3 different shapes (but not including your card and backing paper).. any shape ~ square, rectangle, circle, hearts etc....

I enjoyed this challenge and here is my creation:

This card used:

Image - Penny Black "2071J - A Scholar!!"
Sentiments - Woodware "FRCL056 "You Did It"
Backing Paper - DCWV Black and White Prints
Cuttlebug - Star Die
Woodware punches for the circles and tag
Fiskars hand punches for the small starts and heart
Minuscule amount of ribbon from my stash box

Great challenge and I really pleased with the final result.

Thanks for stopping by for a look. Have a great Sunday.

Love Jules xx
