My photo
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

I have had a mega productive day - but it has been very quiet without hubby. Missing him lots .. .. .. although he has sent lots of text messages and we have spoken a few times!!! LOL!!

Time to share the contents of my mystery parcel which arrived this morning from Mrs X (as explained in my earlier posting of today). My photograph isn't brilliant because the weather here is just horrendous today. Mega rain and dull black clouds!!! But I wanted Mrs X to see that I had played with my lovely pressie.

Look what I got and what I made:

This used:

Image: Messy Rabbit "Baby Bunny MR151"
Sentiment: Elzybells
Spellbinders Nestabilities "Large Deckled Rectangles"
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder "Swiss Dots"
Fiskars heart punch
Ribbon from the stash box
Backing paper: Sorry not sure - might be Papermania - it was one of those huge packs that I have had for years and feel I will never get to the end off LOL!!

I loved colouring this image. So sweet. Thank you very much Mrs X - you know I am a soft touch for Messy Rabbit - but you are very naughty!!!!

Catch you all again tomorrow for a new Allsorts Challenge and to see who is going to be joining the team for a two week DT spot. Can't wait!!!

Love Jules xx
