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.

WHERE HAVE I BEEN?

Hi Everyone

Where on earth have I been!!!

Have I ever been this late in posting?!?!?!  Probably LOL!!!

We had a lovely visit earlier this evening from very good friends who live too far away for us to see each other as much as we would like .. .. so we had lots of catching up to do .. .. talking at about 100mph to fit everything in.  But of course we never manage to fit everything in .. we could spend a whole month together and still not run out of things to talk about!!  LOL!!!

You would never guess that from my blog would you?  I come across so shy .. tee hee!!

Anyway just time for a quick share which again uses the lovely download that Anice has released this week





This used:

Backing Papers and sentiment: Funky Hand Download "Tea's Up!"
Sizzix Die:  Tim Holtz Elegant Flourishes (stolen from my lovely DIL .. thank you xx)
My trust sewing machine
Buttons and ribbons from the stash box

and that is it... ..

Hope it was worth waiting for.

I love the colours in this new download.  They are gorgeous!!

Enjoy what is left of the evening and have a lovely weekend everyone.

Love

Hi Jules, I do like the large flourish on this card & the double ribbon. A lovely colour combo as well. It is nice to catch with old friends isn't it?

Amazing colours and design Jules. Love the fab stitching especially on the ribbon. Aww! sounds like you have really enjoyed catching up with your friend, although there's the phone and email and stuff, it's not the same as a good old chat face to face.
