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 my little visitor has just gone home .. .. shame !!

We have had a lovely time and managed to get through Helen's "to do" list.

Hopefully she will be posting lots of new things on her blog now as she has taken a mountain of creations home with her. If you do not know where Helen's blog is .. .. then you will find it here.

One of the things we did was a card for Penny Black Saturday where the theme was "Red, White and Blue".

Here is my creation (I hope Helen gets chance to post hers).

This used:

Image: Penny Black "1738K"
Backing Paper I'm afraid is a mystery - it came from the scrap drawers which have taken a bit of a hammering this weekend (but still look too full).
Diamond Stickles
Brads from the stash box

You may remember last week that I mentioned the new CD from Anice at Funky Hand "Colour Me Happy".. .. .. well treat of treats .. .. .. Anice is going to be showcasing it tomorrow on Create and Craft at 10.00am (can't wait).

So you know where I will be tomorrow morning .. playing spot which of my lovely DT mates made which creation !!! I hope you get chance to watch too.

I hope you all had a lovely weekend and I'll catch you again tomorrow.

Thanks for calling by.

Love Jules xx
