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

Well the World Cup is nearly over .. .. .. .. my lovely hubby and youngest son are settling down to watch "a little late". Whoever wins tonight it will be good news for one or other of them.

My son drew Netherlands in his work's draw and my hubby chose Spain in his long drawn out prediction table that looked like something from a maths exam.

I think my son would come off best as he would gain a little monetary prize whereas hubby would just get more points on his final total .. .. .. but these wouldn't be enough to make him anywhere near the top of the table. So I think it is "come on Netherlands".

I lost interest in the football once England were out.

So for my part I will just be escaping into the kitchen to make a late evening meal. I couldn't be doing with the oven on today so a quick meal which involves gammon, chips and egg was voted as next best to the normal Sunday roast LOL!!

Before I disappear though a quick share for the day

This used:

Image: Penny Black "2063K" Water Lily Skiing
Backing Papers: Funky Hand "Dreams Come True" CD
(the gingham is from the scrap box and I'm not too sure who is responsible for this)
Cuttlebug Flowers Die
X-Cut Ribbon Punch
Brad and ribbon from the stash box

No hidden faces to find today LOL!!! I was pleased I wasn't the only one who could see the face in yesterday's stamp. Perhaps I should admit that I see faces in lots of things - including my bedroom curtains!!

OK - off to the kitchen to make my culinary delight .. .. .. catch you again tomorrow.

I hope you have all had a good weekend and thank you for taking time out to come and visit.

Love Jules xx
