Back again .. .. this time with my Penny Black Challenge card.
It is Penny Black's first birthday so the challenge is to make a celebration card.
I chose my image because it is Penny Black's first birthday .. .. .. .. .. there is appropriately one candle on the birthday cake. I also added a "friends" gel sticker in the corner because everyone in Penny Black land is so super friendly .. .. and this is something to celebrate too.
Here is my creation
Image: Penny Black 3842K "cinnamon"
Stamps Happen 30023 "birthday candles"
Sentiment: Penny Black 2908F "to you"
Backing Paper: Funky Hand
Gems and Gel Sticker from my Polka Doodle prize
Special Heart: from my lovely Sis (thank you - love you xxx)
and that is it. I hope you like my special heart.
My Sis came round for a Chinese and a sleepover on Saturday evening and brought me a whole pack of special hearts. She had seen them and "just had to buy them for me". (Isn't she lovely).
When I opened the hearts tonight they had a special smell. Not sure if you will know what I mean but they smelt like a "new doll".
It might not be the same now but when I was a child if you had a new doll it had a special smell and I used to "sniff" my new dolls head for ages .. .. .. well until the smell had gone away. I love the "new doll smell" and haven't experienced it for ages. Thanks Sis - shame you weren't around to share the sniffing session!! LOL!!!
Well now I have managed to convince everyone that I am very strange I will disappear.
Love Jules xx
- 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.
