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

Busy day here in the House of Hearts .. .. where has the day disappeared to?

I didn't manage to make it to the Penny Black Saturday Challenge last week so I thought I had better make amends this week .. .. particularly as the theme was right up my street Summer Lovin'

Here is my summer lovin' creation

and the close up

This used:

Image: Penny Black "4030K" The Park Bench Affair
Backing Papers: Pink Petticoat "Just an Old Fashioned Girl"
Sentiment: Pink Petticoat
Martha Stewart Punch: Frond
Josy Rose: Nail Heads
Glossy Accents
Cord and flowers from the stash box

Nothing else to share today except the exciting news that I will see you bright and early in the morning as I start my new DT post with Penny Black @ Allsorts tomorrow and have my first DT creation to share with you and hopefully inspire you to take part.

See you then playmates.

Love Jules xx

Gorgeous Jules! I love how it's suitable for a couple and not so 'girly' if that makes sense. Love the red roses too which compliment the roses of the image.
