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

Very late this evening I'm afraid as I have been out and about watching the footie this afternoon and have also eaten out. What a slacker!!! But you know what they say .. .. all work and no play .. .. ..

No celebratory football card to share unfortunately so we will just go with a good helping of red and white.

This simple creation used:

Image: Penny Black "3199J" Poppy Fields
Sentiment: Pink Petticoat
Backing Paper: My Mind's Eye
Nestablities: Large Deckled Rectangles
Diamond Stickles
Ribbon from the stash box

The poppies have been flowering in my garden this last couple of weeks but they never look this good. They always appear one or two at a time instead of in one vast array .. .. but looking on the bright side at least there is a gorgeous bit of colour over a longer period.

So after a day of excitement and socialising tomorrow needs to be a "head down and get lots done" day. Can't wait!!!

See you tomorrow.

Love Jules xx

Love the poppies on your card, Jules. You deserve a day off now and then, glad it was a good one. Don't worry, the forecast is not so good tomorrow so it won't be so bad if you have to get stuck in.
The poppies in my garden have been gorgeous, big pink ones, but they've just about finished now. Beautiful but fleeting!!
