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.

Good morning everyone

I am such a lucky girl .. .. .. I have been working extra hard all week on my card orders so I can have a day out and about today. All in the name of research and product awareness of course .. .. .. .. .. I am off to the NEC with my lovely Sis - Jo.

We have both been looking forward to it so much and the day will start off with an excited scream and hug when we first meet LOL!!! (and finish with us sulking on the train on the way home because the day is over). I am also hoping to meet up with my Funky Hand Teamie "Enfys". That will be lovely.

I have worked hard this week but not posted anything for you to see .. .. .. sorry .. .. .. not things it felt right to share in case I spoilt surprises for people - and there is still no card today (double sorry). The weekend will bring something to share I am sure.

Not only am I off to the NEC .. .. .. it is also my birthday .. .. .. so I have birthday pennies available!!! Yay!!!

All week a lovely pile of cards have been building up in the hallway and this morning I got to open them .. .. how lovely .. .. lots of handmade cards .. .. .. and they are gorgeous. Thank you so much to everyone who has thought of me and spent their creative time making something beautiful for me. What wonderful blogging pals I have.

Right then .. .. .. off to finish getting ready and find my hidden craft stash fund LOL!! Sis will be leaving home now and be here in about 20 mins.

Love Jules xx

Oh, I didn't know it was your birthday Jules and it looks like I've just made it on the day. HAPPY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY JULES!!!!! I bet you had a fab time at the NEC today. I'm going with a friend tomorrow so I'd best get off up the wooden hill ('cept we live in a bungalow, Lol). I need my rest before all that hard work tramping round the hallowed halls of the NEC.
