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 - Week 48

Hi Everyone

Today's challenge from Penny Black was Black, White + 1 other.

This simply meant your creation should be made from black and white plus one other colour!!

To begin with I was tempted to re-submit the challenge card I did last week as that was black, white and red .. .. .. .. but that would be cheating!!!!

So my challenge card for this week is below.

I started with this .. .. ..

and created this .. .. .. ..

This creation used:

Image - Penny Black "3859H - Corner Piece"
Gems and brads from my stash .. .. .. and nothing more

To begin with I tried adding ribbons and flowers and just about anything else I could think of because I felt I had used too little. Then I changed my mind and decided that on this occassion "less is more". I decided my card didn't need anything further.

Quite a quick card really (once I finished messing about trying to dress it up!!) Must remember this one next time I am in a hurry for a quick card.

I hope everyone's weekend is going well.

Love Jules xx

Morning Jules

Your card is fab, the colurs and the pure simplicity makes it so elegant. You need not worry about "too little" sometimes understated is what makes the card, like this one.

Just seen you PM, about to mail you back.
