A very warm welcome to my teeny, tiny part of the huge world of blogging. This is where I am hoping to 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 always 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.

One for my Mummy!

Hi Everyone

Tonight I am sharing the Mother's Day card my Mum will receive on Sunday. (Can't believe it is ready so early!).

Sadly only one Mummy to make a card for this year :-(

Here is my creation:


To make this card I used:

Backing Papers - Pink Petticoat - Lolas Boudoir Collection
Stamped image - Penny Black "Long Stem Cuties"
Sentiment - Computer generated
Image coloured with ProMarkers and Whispers Pens
Ribbon from my lovely lady on the market

Hey - have you noticed? No Diamond Stickles .. .. .. must be a first!!!! Have just looked at the card again in case it needs some but no, I am happy.

Looking forward to the weekend as this week has been a bit of a bummer for a number of reasons. But never mind, my eldest son and his wife are coming to stay for the weekend and we are out to celebrate my neice's 21st birthday on Saturday night.

That does mean though that I have to empty the living room table of all my goodies. Am I the only person that is lucky enough to have a designated little craft room along with a large dining room table covered in bits and bobs and half finished creations???

I do love my little craft room but I feel guilty shutting myself away upstairs and so I bring things downstairs to work on as well .. .. .. so I can be at least "semi" sociable!!

Have just thought - with the week I have had the Penny Black Challenge on Saturday is likely to be "A Card for your Mum" !!!!!

Take care everyone.

Love Jules xx
