I hope you are all well.
Just a quick reminder about the By The Cute and Girly Challenge that started this month and a glimpse of my second creation.
Everyone on the team was asked to bring variety to the challenge blog and to show creations that were not just cards. I hadn't realised just how "card orientated" I had become. My first thought always goes to a card - and yet there are just so very many other options too - and I really enjoyed thinking about other crafts and actually "doing" other crafts. This could bring a whole new dimension to my blog!! Yay!!
I previously showed you the card I had made - well my next creation is a burnt flower. I saw this idea months ago on Caz's blog and instantly fell in love with the idea and the look.
I dropped Caz an email to see if she would mind if I "made and showed" a flower using her inspiration and linked back to her blog for the instructions. Caz very kindly agreed (thank you Caz x) and full instructions are here. (Beware though - once you visit Caz's blog you will be hooked - she does the most amazing work and you will be there for ages).
Here is my creation using autumn shades.
I put a small brooch pin on the back of my flower so that I can wear it on my clothes - but it looks equally nice attached to a bag, a card or a present.
Once you make one you can't stop - you will be swarmed out with them I tell you!
I hope you are enjoying the "By The Cute and Girly Challenge" and are perhaps getting chance to enter a creation.
I am still away on my holibobs but will catch up with what everyone has been doing on my return.
Love Jules xx
- 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.
