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

Isn't it gorgeous? Beautiful weather and I think it is here for the whole week .. .. yay!!!

Most of my day has been spent putting samples together for Anice over at Funky Hand. There is a new CD due to be released and I have been having a good old play .. .. .. I love the papers and the digi images and am sure you will too. I am spoilt for choice as to what to work with.

So just a quick share of a little make (nothing to do with the new CD) .. .. just so you know I haven't been being lazy and spending my time lolling about in the garden.

The only time outside has been spent watering plants and hanging washing on the line!!!
This used:

Image: Penny Black "2353H" A Winner
Sentiment: Stampendous "CRE202" Cling Birthday Calories
Backing Paper: Pink Petticoat
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder "Happy Birthday"
Josy Rose Nail Heads
Diamond Stickles
Cord from the stash box

I hope everyone has had a happy Monday .. .. have a good evening and remember your sun cream this week. I don't want to hear any of you have turned into red lobsters!!!

Love Jules xx

Beautiful card! I certainly will be slopping on the sun cream this week. I impersonated a lobster after sports day last year using factor 25. I've invested in factor 50 this year!

That's definitely my kind of sentiment Jules and a lovely card to boot! Yep, definitely sun cream weather. I took the dog for a 20 minute walk this morning and came back with a very 'warm' neck. Good job I wasn't out any longer or I would have been the lobster you referred to!

Sorry I've not had time to email yet this week but hopefully tomorrow.
