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.

Good Morning Everyone

Bank Holidays do something strange to the week and your brain don't they?

They make it so that you have to work out what day it is for the rest of the week!! Saturday was fine, then Sunday felt like Saturday and Monday felt like Sunday ........................ but I like them all the same!!! LOL!!!

So today feels like Monday - which means by rights I shouldn't be going to work .. .. .. but in reality it is Tuesday .. .. .. so I am.

Wow .. .. .. that was so confusing I could be a politician couldn't I?!?!? Perhaps we won't go there!!

But only three more days left until I take that giant leap into full time self employment. You wouldn't believe the list of tasks and goals I have set myself .. .. .. and I add to it every day!! Eekk!!!

My new boss still hasn't given me a job description or contract of employment you know .. .. .. I think she is going to be using the old phrase "and any other duties you may be called upon to do from time to time" .. .. .. I can just tell.

So before I head off out into the big world I thought I would share a quick card with you.

This used:

Image: Lili of the Valley - "Mr Fixit" (one of my new ones from Ally Pally and I lurve it)
Background papers: Funky Hand for the main and My Minds Eye border strip
Sentiment: Computer Generated
Spellbinders Nestabilities: Large Deckled Rectangles
Brads: Woodware
Cord from the stash box
Diamond Stickles

So that is me. Enjoy your day whatever you are doing and take care.

Thanks for calling by.

Love Jules xx
