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

Poor Mr Blogger .. .. .. what a stressful time he must be having trying to get all our blogs back in order again.

I do hope he manages to recover all of the missing posts we have all done .. .. especially the tutorial I did yesterday.  I don't want to have to do all of that again!!!

So here is my share of the day .. .. dedicated to Mr Blogger

This used:

Image:  LOTV
Backing Paper:  Sorry I don't know.  It is some paper I bought years ago when I didn't need to know who made things LOL!!
Sentiment:  Elzybells
Martha Stewart Punch:  Daisy
Crystal Stickles

and that is me!!!

Hope everyone has a good weekend.  Mine is going to be super special as my big baby boy and his wife are coming home from London for the weekend so we can celebrate my lovely DIL's birthday (I have spent a good bit of today trying to find the spare bedroom for them .. .. it has become a bit of a craft pod overflow room of late LOL!!).

So tomorrow may or may not see me making an appearance .. .. we shall have to see how the day goes.

Have a good time whatever you are doing and "Get Well Soon" Mr Blogger.

It's been a very frustrating week in Blogger land hasn't it but I could actually see your tutorial post from the very beginning. I just couldn't get in to comment on it nor on anyone else's either.

I bet Mr Blogger is feeling a whole lot better Jules now he's seen his lovely Get Well card from you.

Have a wonderful weekend with your Big Baby Boy and DIL. I'm off up to Harrogate ........ yet again ......... tomorrow but it's the last time until next Thursday when I'll be staying till after the wedding. Oooer, it's getting a bit nerve wracking now. Isn't it daft as I wasn't a bit nervous on my own wedding day, lol!

I have had house guests and have been a naughty commentator then blogger went down but I have thoroughly enjoyed catching up on your recent makes. Every one of them is beautiful! Loved your very recent "Thank you" card and your PB from Wednesay was perfect. Great tutorial for the knots too, Jules!
Hugs Lesley

Adorable card.
Being off line for a couple days has left me somewhat in the dark about blogland issues. I hope every thing is recovered soon.

I have a card to post for your snippets this week. I will get it posted first thing in the morning; for now, I'm taking my tired and ill self back to bed. :)

Hi Jules,

the papers you have used are from Papermania. They brought out a range of papers in colour families and this was a purple pack with different patterns in it.

Cute card and it has obviously made Mr. Blogger better. You single handedly saved us all from blog oblivion :)

Love Mandy xxx
