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

Well I am not late this week for my Polka Doodle Challenge. (Phew!!!)

This week there were three elements:

1. To work to a sketch
2. To use 3 different papers
3. To use at least one flower

Here is the sketch

Here is my creation

This used:

Image and Sentiment: The Greeting Farm "Cake Topper" (Coloured with Promarkers)
Hearts: Elusive Images (Sorry cannot find the name of the collection).
Papers: Pink Petticoat "His N Hers Collection"
Nestablities: Scalloped Circle Large and Standard Circle Large
X Cut - small flower punch
Little gem and ribbons from my stash box
Diamond Stickles

My flower is only a tiny little thing which I placed alongside the two hearts which I had overlapped. I just wanted a flower that was small and delicate as I felt that anything larger would spoil the look of my card.

I hope you like my creation. I really loved making it!!

Thank you for calling by.

Love Jules xx
