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

Slowly getting on top .. .. .. but it has involved me installing myself on the dining room table .. .. .. as I have been busy putting inserts into a box of cards.

This task is all finished now so I just need to clear away before hubby returns. Not that he would be bothered in the slightest .. .. but it only feels right that he comes back from work to a home rather than a card making factory LOL!!!

Today's quick share uses a lovely slapstick stamp from Penny Black.

This used:

Image: Penny Black Slapstick "40-016" Hedgehog Birthday
Sentiment: Penny Black "Critter Party"
Backing Papers: Funky Fairy "Gorgeous Ginghams"

and that is it!!

Mmmm.. .. .. I could just eat a slice of that cake or one of those jam tarts .. .. .. but it is a bit cool and windy here for a picnic.

Thanks for calling by. See you again soon.

Love Jules xx

Gorgeous card Jules. I love the hedgie image and anything with gingham is a hit with me.
Don't you wish the inserts would just get done overnight by the insert fairy?

Love your blog, just found it by blog hopping. I'm now a follower as i love uncluttered cards. I'm with you on the hubby thing,trained by my mother to have meal ready to dish up when he comes home.......even if i've got in from work half an hour before him. Him? he wouldn't care if he ate his meal off a cuttlebug plate!

Hi Jules, what a lovely card, makes you feel like it should be warm enough for a picnic, unfortunately it isnt at the moment its quite chilly in this neck of the woods. Love the image and your colouring is fabulous. With love and hugs Shirleyxxxxx
