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 Saturday Challenge - Week 49

Hi Everyone

Sorry but I am a bit late with my entry for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge this week.

This is because we have had two lovely visitors come to stay for a long weekend. We have had a wonderful time together catching up. They are now making their way home and I am making cards!!!!

First is my favourite challenge - using my favourite stamps.. .. Penny Black.

This weeks challenge was a recipe 3 - 2 - 1 - 3 flowers, 2 papers and 1 charm or brad.

Below is what I created:

This used:

Image: Penny Black 3823H "Delights"
Papers: DCWV "Retro Prints"
Adhesive Pearls: Papermania
Ribbon: A huge roll I bought from Costco yesterday (just had to use it).
Flowers: Petaloo "Mulberry Street"
Nestabilities : Classic Scallop Rectangles

One down and at least one more to go.

I want to take part in the first week of the Allsorts Challenge Blog. This week the theme is "Sweets". Not quite so easy - but I will have a go. Hopefully I will be back later with my creation (if I can find something in my stash that I can use - nothing is springing to mind at the moment PANIC!!!).

Love Jules xx
