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. This is a card I wanted to make simply because I loved the ribbon. I wonder how many other people start with the ribbon and then work back.

It used to be that the ribbon was the last thing I put on but nowadays it is sometimes the first.

Quite a quick card really

This used

Image: Stampendous! P107 "Agapanthus Cluster"
Backing Paper: Funky Hand Download "Salt and Pepper"
Ribbon: From my favourite lady on our local market
Nail Heads: Josy Rose

Back tomorrow with my new Allsorts DT card - there is still time to enter last week's challenge.. .. .. "snowflakes in September"- the prize is a month as a guest DT member. (But you will have to get a shift on!!)

Love Jules xx

Love the monochrome look Jules and that ribbon is heavenly. Must admit, I've also built a card around a particular embellishment that I'm desperate to use - hey, whatever inspires us, eh? Hugs, Nicki
