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.

Tag You're It Challenge - Week 51

Hi Everyone

I had a wonderful birthday yesterday and a wonderful day off work today - more about that later.

I started my entry for the Tag You're It Challenge early this morning and have just finished it after having a great day out and about.

The theme for the tag this week is "Cute and Cuddly" - well there is no contest - the most cute and cuddly thing there could possibly be in the whole wide world is a little baby so here we go .. .. ..



My tag this week used:

~ Image - Magnolia Tingla
~ Sentiment - Great Impressions
~ Papers - Funky Fairys - for the background and paper piecing
~ ProMarkers for added colour
~ Buttons, peel offs and Woodware punches
~ Ribbons from my favourite lady at the market

So back to my expeditions of the day with my "better half". I had final supplies to gather for a wedding stationery order I currently have and after getting these we started to make our way home. On the way back my hubby suggested we call at a local nursery that months ago "used to house Craft Central".

Craft Central outlets appear to have disappeared - but for some reason my hubby suggested we call to where they used to be in Little Eaton - just in case. What a treat!!! Yes, they were there again - and joy of joys they had a 48% discount on everything they had in stock ahead of their new stock arriving next week.

Guess who got a Cricut at 48% discount???!!!! I have looked at these on numerous occasions but never took the plunge because of the price - but with a 48% discount and a persuasive husband how can you refuse. It was all just meant to be.

They still have 2 more left if anyone needs to indulge.

Have a good weekend everyone. See you again soon.

Love Jules xx

Lovely tag Jules and you're right nothing could be more cute than a baby.

Aren't you the lucky one! How nice of your Hubby to suggest that particular 'pit stop'. Is he psychic or had he sussed the sale out beforehand? Whichever, it was still really nice of him to suggest it.
