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

Another creation I would like to share with you. But what do I want to know the answer to?

Well my card features Japanese Dolls and a Kanji Poem (Kanji being Japanese writing) but what does the poem say and do I have it the right way around?!?!?!? Help!!!

If you know for sure I have the writing the wrong way round then please let me know so that I get it right in future. I won't be offended and would greatly appreciate the help.

Anyway, here is my creation:

My creation used:

Image: Three Japanese Dolls (but I used only two!) by Hero Arts
Image: k5191 "Kanji Poem"
Sentiment: Computer Generated
Backing Papers: Pink Petticoat "Stripes White"
Ribbon from the stash box
ail heads: Josy Rose
X-Cut flower - small
Diamond Stickles

Thank you for calling .. .. .. .. now off I go back to the Christmas cards!! LOL!!

Take care

Love Jules xx

It's a lovely card! I don't have a clue as to whether it is the right way up or not, but brush strokes tend to be more pointed at the bottom if that's any help. I too love wondering aloud, but I think solstice bells is probably my favourite. I had quite a bit of vinyl, but sadly only converted 'aqualung' and 'songs from the wood' to CD. Good to compare notes with another fan!

This is beautiful Jules, I love those little dolls but I am sorry I don't know about the poem, but even if they are, it still looks adorable.

Hi Jules,
I have no idea about the writing but it looks great - the whole card does.

Hi Jules, I love your japanese dolls they are gorgeous and Im sure your granddaughter will love it. With love and hugs Shirleyxxxxx

Jules said...

LOL Shirley - no Grandchildren for me yet!!

If this was for my Grand-daughter it would be smothered in hearts. Front, back and inbetween and probably even be a heart shaped card in the first place !! LOL!!

Love Jules xx
