My photo
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

A lovely Saturday weather wise - I hope it has been for you too.

Only time for one make today so far as the day has involved having to venture out into the big world with hubby. You know I am sure I could just be locked in my little home for months and be quite content.

I decided I would rather make a card than watch the FA Cup - no-one playing gave me any encouragement to watch (though I would have liked the under-dogs to win). Anyway, not much beats a good crafting session does it? In fact does anything ??????? Mmmmm...........

Well another of my favourite places (separate to my craft pod) is the bath!! I love a good soak in the bath .. .. .. though I certainly wouldn't want to share it with these little fellows .. .. .. no matter how cute they look !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This creation used:

Image: Penny Black "1684K" Bubbles 'n Squeak
Backing Papers: Funky Fairy - Gorgeous Ginghams
Woodware Circle Punch
Diamond Stickles
Cord from the stash box

I decided the hearts had been far too easy to find just recently so this one might take a little bit more looking for.

Have fun!

Off to the bath now - hope there are no little mice in there playing with our toothbrushes!!!

Love Jules xx

Ha! Ha! I'm just the same as Maureen. It took me ages! I can't believe how much care you've taken matching up the ginghams, Jules.

The card's lovely and a much nicer thing to do instead of watching the cup final than the ironing I was trying to catch up on.

Gorgeous card Jules, the image is lovely and so fun. I think everyone likes a good soak in the bath after a hard/bad day - I do!!! I found the cute little heart, but it took me a little while. I wasn't stopping until I had found it, lol. Enjoy the rest of your weekend. Love Kerry xx
