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 have decided that Mr Blogger is just an attention seeker and he loves us all to be talking and posting messages about him.

The other evening my hubby asked if my lappy was "behaving itself now?" with regards my blog.

I confidently replied that it was working better than it ever has - I could now see my followers - schedule my posts - access other lovely blogs without having stupid messages coming up which needed me to click on my back arrow multiple times - publish comments from my emails .. .. .. oh yes I was a totally happy bunny. Mr Blogger is my friend!

So what happens? Mr Blogger couldn't possibly have people not talking about him so he decides to work really slowly and to steal my reading list!! !! I do hope he lets me have it back soon. I do appreciate that he is just probably keen to look at all the lovely blogs I visit and wants to check them out himself .. .. .. but please Mr Blogger .. .. .. pretty please .. .. .. can I have it back now (and could you speed up a bit please). (Addition later in the day - YAY!!! Come home from work to find that Mr Blogger had finished with my reading list and has returned it to me. That will be because I remembered my manners and said please a lot!!!).

Whilst I am here I have a quick card to share:

This used:

Image: Funstamps FM197 "Garden Shelf"
Sentiment: See-Ds #50159 "Celebration Messages"
Backing Paper: Funky Hand
Funky Heart Punch
String from the "things that come in useful" cupboard

I wish my garden shelf looked this clean and organised LOL!!

Have a great day everyone. Lots of lovely rain for me today!!

Love Jules xx

Lovely card, Jules. It reminds me of my dad's greenhouse. VERY organised and despite having been there for about 12 years, still looks like new!

Oh Jules, Mr Blogger really is mean to you. I hope he starts being nice soon.
What a great card for a man (or a lady gardener!) - great image and lovely papers.
The "garden twine" is a very nice touch.

Yup, know exactly what you mean Jules, although I haven't had as many problems as you. Mine is mainly with blogs not loading and even more annoying is when I want to leave a comment on a lovely post and it won't let me, Grrr!

Anyway, love your card. The colouring is great and yes, it does look very tidy. No spiders lurking on that shelf like there are on mine, Lol!

Hi Sweetie, it might be better if you use Firefox instead of Internet Explorer as its a lot easier and doesnt seem to crash quite so much. Love your card, its gorgeous, and I do so love your comments you leave me and you are so welcome to my thanks I appreciate all your help and comments. with love and hugs Shirleyxxxx

Mr Who? Don't know who you mean (and if I did, I'm sure I wouldn't give him the satisfaction of speaking his name!! ;o) hehe..

LOVE that card! Nothing on it that I don't like. A lot.
