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.

Probably too late but worth a try!!

Hi Everyone

Have you ever had an idea buzzing around your head for days and days .. .. .. but without the chance to do anything with it?

Well this was me with the Polka Doodle challenge this week.

I have now finally had the opportunity to put my ideas onto a card and have noticed that the closing time for challenges on this blog is Wednesday, 12.00 GMT. Now is that 12.00 (my dinner time) or 12.00 midnight (my wake up on the sofa and go to bed time)?????

I am hoping it is the latter .. .. .. but if not .. .. .. never mind. I have had fun creating.

This is the sketch I needed to work to

and this is what I created:

This little creation was made using:

Image: The Greeting Farm "Rockstar Anya" (coloured with Promarkers)
Papers: DCWV "The Rockstar Mat Stack"
Sentiment: Inkadinkado 98693 "Rock Star / LA star"
Nestabilities: Classic Scalloped Circles Large
Punches: Woodware 2" scalloped square and a little music note punch that doesn't have a manufacturer's name on it

and last but not least. 6 strands of wire (these are supposed to represent the 6 strings on Anya's guitar).

Now being the very proud mother of my own little "Rock Star" .. .. .. who owns more guitars than I own pairs of shoes .. .. you would have thought I would have scrounged some real guitar strings for this task - but I didn't :-(

So fingers crossed I am not too late to enter this for the challenge. If I am at least I will understand the rules for next time.

Oh dear!!! So many challenges I want to do and I promised myself I wouldn't get drawn into them.

I really do feel I need to take part in the Winter Wonderland Challenge though (if only to get ahead of myself on the "C" card front .. .. .. .. I didn't say the "C" word because summer is just appearing .. .. .. but you know what I mean LOL!!!!) All my "C" cards end up a last minute rush!!!
Catch you again soon.

Love Jules xx

This is brilliant Jules. It's cute and sassy and it all co-ordinates beautifully. Glad you got it entered.

I have had no trouble avoiding challenges so far as I spend more time looking at other people's blog and their entries to have time to make any myself.

a lovely card
Thank you so much for the lovely words that you left on my blog. I have some strong painkillers and antiinflamitries so managing to do some crafting. i have found if i paint on good days I can then cut the papers on the bad.
Big hugs x

Dena said...

Too funny Jules! I have a little rock-star too. Well, not so little he is 16. They play in all these different venues.
Your card is sooo fun! I love it and I know what you mean about having this idea in your head and just getting it down. Yours turned out fantastic though even if it was late. Hugs, Dena
