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

Here is my Passion for Promarkers challenge card.

This week the colours that you need to use are Cocoa and Cornflower Blue and follow a sketch.

Here is the sketch

Here is what I produced

To make this card I used

Image: Penny Black 3817K "Tigress"
Background Paper: The English Paper Co.
Sentiment: Woodware GRCL207 "Don't be Blue
Promarkers: Cocoa and Cornflower Blue
Punches: Martha Stewart "Doily Lace" and "Scalloped Hearts"
Ovals cut using Cricut and Cartridge "George & Basic Shapes"
Eyelets and Ribbon from my stash box
Sewing machine

I spent some of the evening yesterday tidying up my craft space .. .. .. what a good idea that was. It has meant I have whizzed through quite a few creations this morning. Lesson for me to learn here .. .. keep tidy it aids production!!!!!!!!!!!!

Not sure if I will be back later today or not. Might just make the most of a hyperactive mojo!!!

If I am not back later then have a great weekend everyone and I will see you tomorrow morning for the Allsorts Challenge. I am still a Guest on the DT and have another creation/challenge to share. Hope you will be able to join in. (Still time to enter this weeks challenge - you might win a Pink Petticoat download).

Love Jules xx

Just stunning Jules, these two colours grown on you don't they.

The detail on the ovals is super, looks like you have spent a lot of time threading ribbons and thread.
