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 hope your weather today has been better than where I live .. .. .. .. no lovely BBQ smells wafting around today as we have had mega rain!!! So different to this time last week when we had our own mini music festival at our "local".

At least when it is raining I can have a little craft session without feeling guilty about not pulling up weeds in my garden!!

So my craft session today included my Penny Black challenge card where the theme was "Soft and Sweet".

I think my creation counts firstly because this little mouse is so soft and sweet but secondly because the image is called "Cheesecake Wish". You can't get much sweeter than a cheesecake. . . . . yummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmie. This was my very first Penny Black stamp and my all time favourite. He is just lovely!

Here is my creation

This used:

Image: Penny Black 1652J "Cheesecake Wish"
Sentiment: Pink Petticoat
Backing Paper: Funky Hand Download "Shabby Saturday"
Spellbinder Nestablities "Classic Scalloped Circles Large" and "Standard Circles Large"
Woodware Flower Punch
Fiskars Heart Punch
Crystal Stickles
Ribbon and Gems from the stash box

Enjoy the rest of Sunday.

Love Jules xx
