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

Well I am late, late, late tonight after being so good these last few nights.  :-(

But I can't finish my card because I can't find what I need for the final touches .. .. .. mainly because it has been such a hectic week on the production front and my crafty stash is in need of a good old tidy up!!!

So rather than not post at all I thought we could have a little fun.

Here is a tiny portion of my card.

Can anyone guess the Penny Black image from what I have posted?

I have always thought this would make for a fabby craft quiz .. .. and it could even be my specialist subject on Mastermind .. .. name that Penny Black Stamp LOL!!!  

I feel I would do quite well on that round ... ... ..  but would let myself down badly on the general knowledge that followed!!  I have only ever been interested in making things!!

So any takers?

I will send a selection of ribbons and embellishment bits to the first person who guesses correctly (but I will need the "actual" name of the stamp .. .. not just a description of what it might be).

Feel free to guess until my next post goes up tomorrow and I won't release any comments until then.

The stamp is still on sale ... I have just checked.

The only clue .. .. it is a wood mounted stamp.

Have fun!!

Hi Jules,

I think the stamp is Royal Mail No. 3766J.
I knew what the image looked like and could picture it in my head, but have had to have a nosey round the internet to find to correct name.

Hi Jules,
Hehe how could I not have a go, what a fun thing to do and with Penny Black stamps being my all time favourite - is it (drum roll please) Royal Mail x joy

mags said...

Hi Jules, what a fun post. I think the stamp you have used has one of the super hedgehogs and is called Royal Mail.
Have a good weekend.

Sue said...

hi Jules, I expect I am too late now but I think it is Penny Black Royal Mail. The reason I think this is because I was looking at buying it a couple of weeks ago.
Looking forward to seeing the finished card

hugs Sue

Unknown said...

Royal Mail!!!!!!!

Beryl said...

I'm guessing there's a hedgehog on
Other than that I haven't a clue. Perhaps we should be guessing what you couldn't find too - I'm sure we've all been there.

ooo errr Jules that is a toughy. Ok I think it is the 'royal mail' penny black stamp, the one where the little hedgie is on his tippy toes next to the post box?
huge hugs Lou xxx

Tedz said...

Hi Jules, I don't suppose I will be the first but my guess is "Royal Mail". Pauline xx

Bev Henwood said...

Hi Jules, what a really fun idea ~ is the stamp Penny Black 'Royal Mail' by any chance? Love Bev xx

Di said...

I'm probably too late Jules - but it's:
Penny Black "3766J" Royal Mail for sure :))

If I win, which is doubtful, then I'll tell you how I know.

Have a lovely weekend - we finally have some sun here, yay!!!

Love, Di xx

Lorraine said...

I think this might just be one of my favourite PB stamps called..Royal Mail?
Have a good weekend.

cotnob said...

Hi Jules, is it Royal Mail - that's my best guess anyway.

Ana said...

Although the card is not yet finished I do believe it will be very beautiful. Just like all your other cards.
I always enjoy finding hearts, so I decidet to take that challenge. I belive the Penny Black stamp that you used is Royal Mail.
Have a nice day.

Sue B said...

Ooh love doing quizzes.... and this is a great concept!

I think it could be Royal Mail Hedgy Christmas List?

Hope you have a great weekend!
Love Sue xx
