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

I hope you have all had a great weekend.

We have had beautiful weather here today so we have been doing a bit of gardening.

But of course all work and no play is no good for anyone .. .. so here is my "play of the day". (Not that I can play the guitar .. .. I leave that to my super talented son).

and the close up version

This used:

Images: Guitar Boy = Sugar Nellie "Rock Idol"
Sentiment and central banner = Inkadinkado "98693" Rock Star
Backing Papers: Funky Hand "Colour Me Happy" CD
Josy Rose: Nail Heads
Diamond Stickles
Brad from the stash

Whilst mentioning Funky Hand in my stash list .. .. don't forget that the August challenge still has a week and a bit to run. We are looking for "pockets" on your creations. Click here if you fancy a look at what you need to do to win a £20 voucher.

So our Sunday dinner is just about ready now .. .. but once I am fed and watered and everything is cleared up I will be back for a good old (and very overdue) blog hop along with last night's X-Factor!! What a lovely evening I am going to have!!

Catch you again tomorrow.

Love Jules xx

FAB card Jules! Great fun and super papers.

Did your customers love the 100th birthday card? Im sure they must have especially as you'd added so much textured to it.
