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 51

Hi Everyone

At last I have managed to make it to my little craft space and here is my Penny Black Challenge card for this week.

This week the challenge was to work to a sketch. This is the sketch:

Here is what I created

To make this card I used:

Image: Penny Black 3947K "day-dreams"
Backing paper and Sentiment: Pink Petticoat
Woodware punch: scallop oval
Funky Heart Punch "KPS16" by KurePunch
Martha Stewart punch (little sample from my buddy Jackie xx)
Cuttlebug flowers
Little Gems and Diamond Stickles

I was so pleased I got the chance to use this Penny Black image - I love it. It was one of the prizes from the Allsorts Challenge Blog and it arrived with me this week. I was hoping all week that the challenge this week wasn't going to be "only animals" as I wouldn't have been able to show it off. LOL!!

Oh well. Off now to work on another creation - alongside all the usual "Sunday" jobs.

Catch you all again later.
Have a great Sunday.

Love Jules xx
