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.

Hi Everyone

Here is a challenge card I made over the weekend but haven't had the opportunity to post until now.

This card is for the Penny Black Challenge where the theme this week was "Blooming Gorgeous".

Here is my Blooming Gorgeous card:

This used:

Image: Penny Black 3815J "Love Blush"
Background paper: Funky Fairy "In with the Old"
Nestablities: Scalloped Circle Large and Standard Circle Large
Crafty Notions Rainbow Drops
Promarker Pens
Fiskars small heart punch

I have also been the proud receiver of two awards over the weekend.

The first came from my blog buddy Jackie from Crafty Garden and was awarded to me for being "a true bloggy friend". Thanks Jackie - the feeling is mutual.

and the second from Helen at Paperholics Anonymous

Both of these ladies have been part of my blogging world from the very beginning. Please go and visit both of their blogs. They both manage to produce such a wide variety of work and always give me inspiration when I visit them. Apart from their crafting inspiration they are great blog buddies to me too - thank you both. So pleased you are there.

Here starts another week - Happy Monday everyone. I wonder what this week is going to hold?

Love Jules xx
