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.

HAPPY GOOD FRIDAY !

Hi Everyone

I hope you are having a good "Good Friday" and that not too many of you are having to go to work.

I have been spending time trying to re-organise my teeny tiny craft room and whilst there have been putting together a few little makes.

Here is one I made using another of the goodies I purchased at the NEC last week.

How gorgeous was this stamp to use .. .. .. no multiple stamping to try and get a decent image .. .. I stamped a few and every one of them was perfect. The actual stamp is very fine and detailed which must be why the finished picture is almost like a photograph in itself.

I bought another set made by the same people so am quite excited to think that these will print just as well.

So, here is my little make:

This used:

Gorgeous image: Crafty Individuals "CI-197"
Sentiment: Hobby Art Ltd "CS016D" General Greetings
Backing paper: Pink Petticoat download "Big Fella"
Buttons and Cord from my stash box


Really pleased with this one. A bit of a sneaky heart for you to find but hey .. .. you have all Bank Holiday weekend to be looking !! LOL!!!

Just whilst I am here I thought I would let you all know about the Funky Hand Easter Sale - there is 20% off everything .. .. if you fancy a treat click here to be taken for a look at what is available.

Have a lovely Easter and thank you for taking the time to call here. I am hoping for a serious blog catch up over the course of the next few days.. .. .. life has been too busy to be sociable these last few weeks but hopefully things will settle back down again soon.

Take care.

Love Jules xx

Luurrrvve the card Jules. A beauty for a man's card too. Found the heart BTW!

You're right about the image, it is absolutely perfect. Crafty Individuals stamps always seem to be pretty good.

I know I owe you an email but have a bit of a hectic time over the next week. Will be in touch before I go to Ally Pally next weekend hopefully.

I love this card Jules (and I found the heart, Lol). It would be a perfect man's card I think. The black and white with just a touch of red is very dramatic. The Crafty Individuals' stamp has given you a perfect image as you say.

I know I owe you an email but things are a bit hectic over the next week or so. I try to send one before I go to Ally Pally for next weekend.

In the meantime have a lovely Easter Jules and take care.

Hugs

Hi Jules,
I love your card - it is gorgeous - I love the splash of red.
I have recently started buying from this stamp company and I cannot praise them highly enough - their customer service is first class and their products are brilliant.
Happy Easter.
