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

Well the end of the Easter break is nearly here .. .. .. shame .. .. .. and today has been another good day for washing and drying outdoors. I love the smell of fresh laundry .. .. but there is a limit as to how much a girl can handle in one stint!! So to break the monotony I made myself a card. LOL!!!

Here it is:

This used:

Image: The Greeting Farm "HG-Laundry"
Backing Papers: Pink Petticoat
Sentiment: Computer generated
Button Border: Cuttlebug border embossing folder
Nestablities: Large Labels
Leone Em Pty Punch: CP30 "Ash Branch"
Diamond Stickles
Buttons, cord and handmade roses from the stash box

Of course this gorgeous and attractive little lady looks nothing like me. How I would love to be able to say that it does .. .. .. and that her beautiful hair is exactly like mine .. .. .. but in fact the only part of this card that resembles me in any way whatsoever is that my wash basket is that colour (and is just as full) and that I always try to have a smile on my face.

So back to work tomorrow for me but I'll catch you all again soon.

Off now to find myself a bit more fun!! LOL!!!

Love Jules xx

You do make me chuckle! Hey, in my head I'm just as young, good looking and thin... just not in reality! I love your card, but I've had lots of fun this past week and I feel some chores a-calling!
