My photo
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 is the sketch:

This is what I used:

Thank you for dropping by to look at what I have done and also thank you to everyone who has been kind enough to bestow an award on me over the weekend. I need to sit down properly to drag them in and link everyone so will do this as soon as I get chance but for the time being I need to make the most of some serious crafting time.

Happy Monday everyone.

Love Jules xx

This is a fab card. the DP stands out beautifully against the white background and I think the image is great - it looks like a very versatile stamp.
Have a lovely day.

Juls, loved your comment on my camping post. I really, really don't like snakes either. Good news is, they won't bother you if they don't feel threatened. You just have to keep your eyes out so that you don't stumble upon one and surprise it.

Yep, the bats and their irratic flying patterns were actually very fun to watch. Of course they were directly overhead, and I kept wondering if I was going to get bat poo in my eyes from looking up at them. LOL

We are going again Labor Day weekend. I can't wait. It's always an adventure with our crew. My husband, myself, and our special needs daughter go and his brother and wife usually rent the cabin right beside us or either we tent camp on the same site. We have a blast! It's amazing how some people can be so passionate about the correct way to cook a marshmellow for s'mores! LOL
