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

Well the weekend is almost here .. .. yay!!!

I love the "Friday feeling" as I know I won't feel guilty if I "sleep in a little" for the next couple of mornings. I don't know why I tell myself this though .. .. .. or kid myself that I will "lie in" .. .. .. because I never do!!! I wake up and my brain goes into creation mode, I get all excited and want to get up and play with my goodies.

I do try "not to think" and this sometimes works and I manage to go back to sleep .. .. but this doesn't happen very often LOL!!!

Well you never know I might manage it tomorrow as we are out and about tonight to our friends Ruby Wedding Anniversary party. The scary thing is that I can remember going to their Silver Wedding Anniversary party 15 years ago!!! Now where did those years go?

I have made them a card to go alongside our present and here are a couple of photos .. .. a normal one

and an "up close and personal" one !!
This used:

Papers: Happy Anniversary paper came from Kanban - Celebration Titles
Music Paper: Hot of the Press "HOTP 7235"
Sentiment: Computer generated
Martha Stewart Punch: Daisy
Josy Rose: Nail Heads
Diamond Stickles
Flowers: 3 different types from Hobby Craft tied together
Ribbon from the stash box

My next problem is going to be whether it will fit into an envelope? If not then I will wrap it in tissue paper, tie it up with ribbon and put it in the bag with their present.

I hope you like what you saw today and I will catch you again tomorrow. Thank you for calling by and have a good rest of Friday.

Love Jules xx

You have been busy this week Jules with lots of gorgeous makes as usual. I love this anniversary card. Hope you have a great time at the party!!
Your word book is beautiful too. What a lovely idea for a gift to leave it empty to be filled, I'd never have thought of doing it that way. Jaya is a beautiful name isn't it, I've not heard it before.
Enjoy your lie in if you manage it, we won't get one tomorrow, we're off to a wedding so I've been busy finishing the card all day!!
Hugs Lisax
