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

I am up bright and early today (as is Mr Sunshine .. hurray!!).

Lots to fit into this weekend so I decided to get cracking on it as soon as I can.

The first mission .. .. which is hopefully going to be painless .. .. is to take my car in for an MOT and service. So I will be spending all morning hoping that the telephone doesn't ring to report an expensive repair before I can have my MOT certificate. We checked all the obvious things and they seem OK so it will just be a case of "wait and see".

Here is my little share of the day
This used:

Image: Penny Black "4035K" Letters and Flowers
Backing Image: Elusive "32531" Script Background
Backing Paper: Funky Hand CD "Dreams Come True"
The punched strip of paper is a scrap from my "bit box" - but I think that is Pink Petticoat
Martha Stewart Punch: Valentine Lace
Faded Jeans Distress Ink
Cord from the stash box

I enjoyed making this one .. .. I think I will be making a few more of it.

It doesn't look like there will be any fence painting here today .. .. it is too windy (hubby has bought one of those fence sprayer thingys to do it with) .. .. I can just see the paint landing everywhere but on the panels.

He will have to make do with cutting lawns and trimming hedges and trees (but I will still be trying to keep out of the way .. .. after all I will have to stay in doors in case the garage call with bad news won't I?).

Have a good weekend everyone.

Thank you for calling by.

Love Jules xx

Hi Jules, I do like this card, it's so pretty and delicate, and I love the colour scheme. I keep toying with the idea of buying that MS punch - after seeing this I think I really will have to!

Hope your car is ok. Mine's going in on Tuesday! xx

Gorgeous and elegant Jules.

Had no idea whatsoever you were into Penny Black stamps, what great taste you have. Knew there had to be a reason we got on so well.

Hi Jules, hope the car went through its MOT without any problems, and you can come and paint my fence and cut the lawn if you like, must get the garden straight before going away on Tuesday.
Love you card, that image is so tranquil and the design is gorgeous. With love and hugs Shirleyxxxxxx
