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

Very, very late Jules today .. .. sorry!!

So I will try to be super quick and share my make of this evening which uses a lovely heart stamp I was excited to receive from my lovely blog buddy Elizabeth.  All beautifully wrapped in pink tissue paper.

It arrived alongside a lovely Christmas card and a Christmas decoration to hang on my tree (and it will hang on my tree every year from now onwards).  Thank you Elizabeth .. .. you are so very kind and thoughtful xx

I have lots of plans for this stamp so you will see it appearing quite a bit!!

Here is my make:

This used:

Image:  Penny Black "3789J" Embraceable
Background Stamp:  Debbie Moore "THG005" Hearts Background
Sentiment:  Funky Hand "Love N That" Clear Stamp Set
Backing Paper:  GCD Studios "Soul Food"  (stamped with the Debbie Moore stamp)
Nestabilities:  Deckled Rectangle Large
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Ribbon, cord and flower from Stash Box

and that is me for today .. .. .. must fly quickly .. .. supper is calling!!!

Hello Jules, gorgeous card, love the image. He's already cutely funny I have read that by adding the googly eyes you have added 30% more humour :) Lovely to see the stamp having an outing ... it makes a great background, especially on the Kraft coloured paper. I might just pinch that rose idea too. Elizabeth x

Aww, is that just plain sweet, or what?? Yes, I confess, I'm a ribbon-aholic! I have another drawer full of the stuff, what you saw on my desk was just the stuff on spools!
