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.

Here it is!!!!!

Hi Everyone

Just thought I would put a few bloggy pals out of their misery and "show the heart" on yesterday's creation.

The recipient loved my card and it didn't take her long to find the heart. (Drat).

So here it is.. .. ..

The heart is a little "see through" sticky plastic heart. I tend to put these on male cards normally as not everyone wants to sent cards to men with hearts plastered all over them. I have other little tricks I do to disguise them too .. .. .. .. .. but I won't share them now or the fun will be spoilt for the future.

Quite a bit of my stash research centres around trying to find "unusual hearts" - I am heart mad it is true!!!!! Unfortunately most of them are "obvious" though .. .. so to find some that aren't obvious feels like a real treat.

Well, nearly another bank holiday weekend!! Yay!!

It will be the last day of the football season for my hubby on Sunday. He is off to Watford for the day so it will be my last "full day" of crafting for a while. I am gearing myself up to be hyper-active!!!!

No creations to show today I'm afraid - but at least you know where the heart is on yesterday's if you didn't spot it.

By the way the stitching was done on my machine - not by hand.

Catch you again soon

Love Jules xx
