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

Sorry I haven't been around visiting very much this weekend - we have visitors staying with us until tomorrow morning and it is rather rude to sit "blog hopping" when you should be "chin wagging". (And we have been)!!!

Wow .. .. haven't talked so much for ages. I think both my friend and myself will have sore throats by tomorrow evening.

My friend has gone out for a family BBQ and will be returning soon - but I just have time for a quick share.

This creation uses a stamp that I purchased from a bloggy mate (Jill) last week. She was having a "clear out" so that she could buy more goodies and this is one of the stamps I bought from her.

Here is my creation:

This used:

Image: Penny Black 1738K "Uplifting Occasion!"
Sentiment: See-D's #50159 "Celebration Messages"
Punch: Martha Stewart "Lace Doily" & XCut "small flower"
Crystal Stickles
Brad and Ribbon from the stash box

and that is me for today.

I am hoping to get lots done this week but before I can do anything I need a major clean up of my craft room.

People often post pictures of their tidy work spaces .. .. .. perhaps we should start a new trend to find out "who has the most disorganised workspace".

Thank you to the ladies who have given me awards this weekend. I am very grateful to you and will post these during the week when I have time to do all the linky things.

Take care everyone and enjoy the remainder of Sunday. I promise to catch up with everyone very soon.

Love Jules xx

Super card Jules, I have this stamp, must dig it out.... I would definitely win the award for most untidy workspace in the universe, sometimes it takes me a week to find a card I finished the night before!!

Oh, I've always loved that stamp! I had a double mastectomy last April, and I've wanted it ever since so I could add a quote about finding a use for my old bras!! lol What better than a cat hammock for my Tigger! ;o)

Love what you've done with it! :o)

P.S. Thanks for the visit!

I love your card its absolutely gorgeous, beautifully coloured and the details are stunning. By the way Ive left you an award on my blog, I do so hope you will accept it. with love and hugs Shirleyxxxxxxxxxxxx

Such a gorgeous card Jules. And don't believe the impression I gave on my craft room looks nothing like the nice tidy craft room I portrayed...within 5 mins of taking my piccies of my new craft room it was total chaos!! (and still is lol)
Love Sarita xx
