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

My creation for today is a little different to normal and it all started because I had a little bit of scrap card left over after using my square nestie on a piece of cream card.

I was just about to put it into the bin when I trimmed it up and though it looked like a "possible" frame for something .. .. .. .. and what better than a window frame.

So here is the make

and the close up
This used

Large Flowers: Hero Arts "C3256" Three Gems
All other flowers and leaves: Rubber Stamp Tapestry "SFL34066" Moonlit Vase
Sentiment: Woodware "FRCL056" On The Move
Fiskars Punch: Threading Water
Nestablities: Classic Square
Sizzix: Mover and Shapers Die "Kit #1"
Marvy Le Plume Pens
Josy Rose: Nail Head
Lace from the stash box

The Rubber Stamp Tapestry stamps are a little set that you use to make up your own little floral scene. I used all the stamps in the set with the exception of the vase.

That is me for today. I hope everyone has had a good week . .. .. .. mine has flown by!!!

Happy weekend and I will catch you tomorrow with the winner of the envelope full of Tattered Florals.

Love Jules xx

Inspired, Jules! I have used windows on my cards before as part of the card but I LOVE how you have used the window as THE feature in this delightful New Home card! Hugs, Lesley

You've been busy while I've been missing for a couple of days Jules. All your cards this week are gorgeous and I especially love this one. Clean and fresh are the words that come to mind and the window is a brilliant idea.
