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.

Evening Everyone

Well some people just don't deserve a blog do they?

They turn up whenever they like to post a creation at any time of day or night .. .. LOL!!!

Truth is I spent the morning putting inserts into a huge batch of cards and then this afternoon I was doing good deeds with my Mum .. .. so a whole day without making a single creation .. .. couldn't have that. I was getting withdrawal symptoms.

So a late creation and a late photo shoot. I think my photograph turned out better for there being no sunshine actually.

Here is what I made
This used:

Image: Magnolia "Pot with Spring Onions"
Dotty background stamp: Lakeland Plastics
Background papers: DCWV "Nana's Nursery Baby Boy"
Distress Ink Pad: Dusty Concord
ProMarkers and Whispers Pens
Cord from the stash box

I decided to try stamping the random dots around the outer edge of the card and on the background card of the image and was quite pleased with the result .. .. it was supposed to match the dots on the flower pot.

So I feel much better now I have had my "crafty fix".

Who knows what time I might turn up tomorrow!!!!

Have a good weekend everyone. The weather is supposed to be really good and there is mention of a BBQ for the house of hearts on Sunday .. .. alongside the football of course.

Love Jules xx

A beautiful card! I love the colours, and that is one magnolia stamp I can cope with! You have done a great job with the dots. I tend to go a bit over the top with things like that!

You can turn up anytime you like Jules, it's always lovely to see you.
I love the dots on your card, they look like part of the paper.
It's a beautiful pot of Spring Onions!!
I've been doing good deeds for my Mum too, namely shifting beds from one room to another and one of them was a double. I must have been mad in this weather, still it's much better to craft when it's cooler isn't it.
Enjoy your BBQ and the football and the weather!!
Hugs Lisax

Lovely idea to use the dots Jules, they look really good. Love the card even though I thought spring onions was an unusual subject for the main image, Lol! It actually looks great but then I knew it would if you chose to do it. Your taste is impeccable.

As for the time, you don't call this late do you???? My posts are nearly always done at strange times of the night. I'm a bit of a vampire really and tend to come alive about 11.30 to midnight-ish, Lol!

I've just decided on the spur of the moment (after Hubby told me it's another Grand Pris and then footie on Sunday) that I think I'm going to take myself off to the Stamp Magic Show at Doncaster Dome. I'll see how I feel on the day, Lol!
