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

What a glorious day ... ... ... could this be the start of summer? Oh I hope so!!!

Just a quick share with you tonight as I need to go and "do a bit" in the garden (and it will be "a bit" as time is running away with me again)!!. I need to prepare the ground for some vegetables I am going to attempt to grow and also organise my greenhouse for my little tomato plant family.

We won't bother with "before" and "after" photographs as you will all feel too sorry for me LOL!!!

Anyway, here is the quick share .. .. nothing earth shattering .. .. but a card I just know my Sis is going to love as she is really into handbags and makes them to sell.

This used:

Image: Stampendous! "N190" Posh Purses
Background Papers: Pink Petticoat
Sentiment: Computer generated
Woodware Flower Punches
Diamond Stickles

We all managed to pass inspection at the dentist yesterday .. .. our next appointment is November!!! Eeekkk we will be back to Winter by then and in a panic about Christmas cards!!

On that cheery note I will bid you all a good evening LOL!!!

Catch you again tomorrow if my lappy lets me. It isn't very happy at the moment and may need to go and be "inspected" at the computer hospital if hubby can't pull any miracles out of the bag. How will I cope?

Love Jules xx

If you're anything like me (and I know you are, lol) you'll not cope at all Jules! I've been totally lost just knowing it's not here when mine's had to go for 'treatment'.

Love the card by the way, and can imagine your sister will. It reminds me of one a friend bought me once (not handmade though) which referred to the fact that I had a bit of an Imelda Marcos shoe thing going on to the point that I bought two pairs exactly the same because I had forgotten I already had them in my wardrobe, Doh!

Oh yes, after seeing your entry for the Sir Stampalot Challenge I decided it was time I had a go as the project I was making fitted the bill so today I've posted my very first challenge entry ever!

Fabulous card, Jules! Good luck with the gardening. Ours is now all dug over and we are waiting for the runner beans and marrows to come through in pots on the window ledge!

Hi Jules,
Managing to do some catching up at last. I've spent what seems like weeks getting the garden straight and there's still loads to do. Must get it looking it's best for any potential viewers. Hope your new working life is agreeing with you. Your sister will love this card. It's gorgeous.
