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

I hope that you are all well and that the sun is starting to peep out wherever you are.

We have been promised lovely weather until Monday where I am - let's hope they are right.

Lots of little ideas flying around my head at the moment and hopefully I can get some of them onto card fronts over the next few days!!! Some I can share straight away but some can't be shared until later.

Here is my first share - which strangely enough started out with the intention of being a black and white card. But it progressed. I am glad it did now as I am really pleased with the finished result.

This used:

Image: Magenta (never know about reference numbers for these stamps but written on the block is 09018 G)
Backing Paper: Funky Hand CD "Now That's Funky"
Nestabilities: Classic Heart
Thread from my stash box

Oh I am so excited .. .. .. looking forward to lots of crafting over the next few days as the football season starts again tomorrow for my hubby!!!! Yay!!! Guilt free crafting!!!

If I am not back later today then I will see you all tomorrow with my inspiration card for the Allsorts Challenge tomorrow.

Take care.

Love Jules xx

Your card is absolutely stunning beyond words. Love that swirly stamp on the edge and gorgeous slate blue and black. So pretty! Have a great weekend! Hugs, Dena
