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 quick share to show you one of the creations I have made today.

New baby cards are amongst my favourite cards to make and this one uses a stamp set I bought at the NEC earlier this year .. .. I have already used it lots already .. .. but just haven't shared any of those previous creations with you.

So it is time to make amends.

This used:

Image and Sentiment: Butterfly Kisses "A2C1015" Hello Baby
Backing Papers: Pink Petticoat (plus a bit of scrap from the box for the paper piecing)
Nestabilities: Classic Scalloped Circles Large and Circles
Martha Stewart Punch: Daisy
Diamond Stickles
Button, ribbon and lace from the stash box

Thankfully I took my photograph earlier in the day because the sky has gone very, very dark and I feel the heavens are going to open any minute!!!

I'll catch you all again soon.

Love Jules xx

Ah! Love the little duck Jules! This card is really sweet and the creamy colours are gorgeous.

We've had a few of those really ominous black clouds today but they've amounted to nothing more than a short shower. Get the fluffy bedsocks out for tonight though 'cos it's going to be veeeeeery cold.

I feel bad that I can’t comment on everything but I just loved this one. The circle and scallop layer with the Hello Baby image is perfect and the “stitching” on the duck coordinates too. Pretty papers and frills make it a little gem! WW Lesley
