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.

WHAT IS HAPPENING?!?!?!?

Hi Everyone

Well it seems to have taken for ever to get here and post a share tonight!!

Mr Blogger just didn't want me to play :-(

.. .. .. my dashboard is saying I don't follow anyone

.. .. .. and it has taken for ever to be able to compile a new post .. .. .. doesn't Mr Blogger know that I don't have time for this?!?!?!?

My big baby boy and his wife are coming home tomorrow to stay for a long weekend (woo hoo!!) and I am spending time messing about trying to post when I should really be clearing their bed of wedding stationery samples, reels of ribbon and swatches of card!!  At the moment they would have more room in the bath than in their bed LOL!!!

Anyway, before Mr Blogger falls out with me good and proper I had better get my share posted  .. ..



This used:

Image:  Penny Black "3388K" Unfold
Sentiment:  Docrafts "25271"
Backing Papers:  Dovecraft "Sugar and Spice"
My trusty sewing machine
Ribbon from off the kids bed .. .. at least that is one thing moved  LOL!!!

I'll hopefully catch you again tomorrow if Mr Blogger hasn't fallen out with me completely.

Love

It is beautiful, Jules! I hope you get that bed sorted so they don't have to sleep in the bath, lol! Don't know about you, but it is fluffy PJs weather here today. It looked lovely at times from behind glass, but perishing in that wind!

Elizabeth said...

Mr blogger often tells me I don't follow anyone and when he does I click to view blog then go back to the dashboard, by which time Mr Blogger has got his act together and there the list is. BTW, lovely card - gorgeous colours and that spotty paper is just my cup of tea :) Elizabeth x

Fab card Jules, love the ice cream colours. Hope you get the bed cleared and have a wonderful weekend

Sweet card! I love that pink and those flowers are perfect!

So funny Jules - Mr Blogger is really throwing hissy fits lately. One day a single large photo appeared underneath the heading followers, instead of all the thumbnails - the weirdest thing was it was of a puppy dog with a grin on its face and its tongue hanging out :) Lovely card, great image teamed beautifully with the background papers as always. I often have to clear our own bed so we can into it - beds are so useful for spreading stash out on to peruse :) Love, Di xx

Denise and Louise said...

This is so pretty. Gorgeous image and I love that dotty paper.

What is it with Blogger right now! I can only follow a new blog if I use Chrome and I often don't follow anyone at all!
Anyway, fab card. Very elegant and understated. I have these papers, you've inspired me to dig them out again. Hope all is well there and you enjoy the time with your boy. xxx
