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.

Hi Everyone

A quick share tonight.

I have been asked to make a couple of Christening cards and I made this as a sample. The sample was well loved so I can now make my "actual" cards which will be just like this but one in blue colours and one in pink with the babies names as part of the sentiment.

This used:

Image: Forever Friends "Christening"
Sentiment: Computer Generated
Backing Paper: Pink Petticoat Stripes
Spellbinders Nestabilities "Large Deckled Rectangles"
XCut "small flower punch"
Diamond Stickles
Deckle edge scissors
Gems, heart and ribbon from the stash box

I have also been the receiver of another fantastic award from my blog buddy Shirley aka Nannieflash.

I suggested you visit Shirley a few days ago - but you must visit again because as a recipient of this award you are suppose to reveal 5 secrets about yourself. Shirley has listed her 5 secrets and think I can say that her secrets are the secrets of every dedicated craft person. I thought they were brilliant.

I love this award Shirley - thank you so much. Another lovely heart to add to my blog LOL!!

Love Jules xx

Oh now Jules thats a cough out sending them to read my sins, but I dont blame you it took me ages to write them out. I absolutely adore the christening card, I had to make one the other week for a Christening I went to on Sunday, but as older babies it wasnt quite appropriate to use a baby stamp, but this one is gorgeous. With love and hugs Shirleyxxxxxxx
