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.

Allsorts Challenge No. 9 - A Sketch

Good morning everyone

Back again as promised with the Allsorts Challenge for this week. Some DT members are still on holiday so I am .. .. .. .. well on "holiday cover". LOL!!

This weeks challenge has been set by Deb who has provided a sketch for everyone to work to (and lovely it is too).

There is another wonderful prize on offer for the winner (chosen by random org) from Stamp Addicts.

You know you need one to pack all that stash into and tidy up your craft space so get creating!!!
Here is the sketch

and this is what I created (but pop over and see the inspiration from the "real Allsorts DT")

To make this card I used:

Image: Elusive Images UA6SP0077 "Rose Stem Script"
Background Paper: Funky Fairy Downloads "Lets Get Traditional"
Sentiment: Penny Black "Critter Party"
Punch: Martha Stewart "Scalloped Hearts"
Craftwork Cards "Card Candy" (from my bloggy mate Jackie xx)
Nail Heads from Josey Rose
Gold embossing powder for the image and sentiment
Chalks for colouring

Quite a sensible and "grown up" card for me!!! LOL!! My Mum loved it!!

So off you go folks. Go and see what you can come up with and try and win that lovely prize. Good luck!!!

Have a great weekend and I'll catch you all again soon.

Love Jules xx

Hi Jules,

Thanks for the message over at my blog, I have to say I did think of you a number of times when I was wrestling with getting a heart into my designs! You always do it brilliantly! Think I need Lessons! LOL!
