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

Sorry I am late .. .. I have had a lovely evening designing a table with one of my lovely "happy couples" .. .. plus a yummy tasting session of their favour box fillings.  Boy their guests are going to be in for a lovely treat!!

So because I am so late it has to be just a very quick make, post and share tonight.

In fact in about an hour this image below could be me .. .. minus the glass of beer!!  

This used:

Image:  Digistamp Boutique
Backing papers:  Kanban and a strip from the snippet drawer
Diamond Stickles
Glossy Accents on the glass of beer (but you probably can't tell)

Sorry this is a flying visit to blogland by me .. .. just time for a quick bath and a very late dinner!!!  A girl cannot live on yummy chocolate favours you know!!!  LOL!!!

But because it was such a quick make I decided to make the heart a little more difficult .. .. to keep you all out of mischief.

Have a lovely rest of the evening.

Found it!!

Sandy said...

I love it!! LOL, my hubby doesn't need a newspaper to sleep like that!

Jenny said...

This girl could easily live on yummy chocolate favours but I fear I wouldn't fit in my craft room for long!!! Sounds like wedding favours have moved on from sugared almonds then!
How true is that card....based on my husband I think ;0)

Jules, you're keeping me up late again, lol! I'm an expert in finding the hearts now; found this one straight away but I'm not telling anyone else, lol! Perfect 'man' card!


Anne said...

You certainly kept me out of mischief for a wee while, took me ages to find the heart! You sound as though you've had a good time tonight. Enjoy your soak and dinner. Hugs x

Ooops - lovely card!

Great card, perfect for a chap - you could always make it a G and T for yourself instead. Subtle heart but I found it! Wipe the nose print that I left on your screen from the inside of your laptop/PC :) Di xx

Great card Jules and one which most of us can relate to.

Pauline said...

Yeah! I spotted the heart! And within seconds too. Have to say, very sneaky though. Hugs, Pauline x

Sally said...

A fun card Jules & it just goes to show what can be made with a couple of DP's & an image. It sounds like you had a good time 'favour tasting'. lol. All is well in my world, although I am now on my second cold for this winter, thanx for asking.
