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 hope you have all had a good Monday .. .. always tough starting a new week isn't it!!  Especially if you had a good weekend.

It has been very windy here.  I did try my washing outside but got fed up with needing to keep rescuing it .. .. LOL!!!

I fancied the look of the Mojo Monday sketch this week so decided to play along. 
Here is my creation:

This used:

Image:  Penny Black "3377K" Whispers
Sentiment:  Anitas
Backing Paper:  Aimee Asher
Josy Rose:  Acrylic Stones
Nestabilities: Standard Circles Large, Classic Scalloped Circles Large
Ribbon from the Stash Box

Here is the sketch

This is definitely one that is going to go into my sketch file.  Lovely to use .. .. thank you ladies!!

Have a good evening everyone.

Catch you again tomorrow.

Hi Jules, I agree this is a fab sketch and love what you've done with it. That purple paper is gorgeous and love the paperpieced stamp.

It has been so windy here too. A poor little mite in the back yard at work was blown over at lunch playtime and ended up with a right bump on her head Bless her.

Hi Jules -

Now why do I just find myself SMILING when I come to visit your blog? So nice to see something "purpley" here for the mojo.

I like how you did a closup too - really gives an appreciation for your fine details.

great take on the sketch and nice colours.

A great take on the challenge Jules. Nice idea adding matching brads in the centre of the flowers too. A lovely neat and colour co-ordinated card. So pretty.
