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

I hope you have all had a good day.

No black from me today (well a Penny Black stamp but none of the colour black) .. .. instead a bright and cheerful creation which I can see me making lots and lots of.

Love this stamp!!!

My creation used:

Image: Penny Black "1469K" Clothesline Cat
Background Paper: The dots are from Pink Petticoat and the gingham is from the now "de-funked" Funky Fairy (which is a shame because they did some beautiful papers).
Sentiment: Computer generated
Clippunch butterflies
and the ever faithful Diamond Stickles

So did you see The Junior Apprentice? How confident were those kids? I keep trying to think back to what I was doing at their age .. .. .. .. no-doubt it was something childish as per usual. In fact I don't think I am as confident as some of those kids even now LOL!!!

Catch you again soon

Love Jules xx

What a great image, Jules. It'd bring a smile to anyone!!
Don't you think youngsters are all so much more confident than we were, I think they have so many more opportunities now if they're willing to take them.

I haven't seen The Junior Apprentice Jules but I can imagine as all kids these days are far more confident that I or my friends were. It's a shame but I think it has a lot to do with making them grow up too fast these days (and if that statement doesn't show I'm getting old I don't know what would, Lol).

The cat seems to have slimmed off a bit since yesterday. Wonder what his secret is? Love the sentiment and the card's great as always.
