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

Hope you have had a good day.

I am a bit late with my share so I will just get on with it.

A bit of a sensible one tonight LOL!!!

This used:

Image:  Hero Arts "Artistic Grapes"
Sentiment:  Pink Petticoat
Backing Papers:  Papermania "A Silent Night"
Nestabilities:  Classic Ovals Large and Deckled Edge Classic Ovals Large
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Woodware Punch:  Inverted Corner Punch
Cord from the Stash Box

So that is me for tonight.

No red wine for me .. .. but shout up if you want one passing!!  I'll stick with a G and T LOL!!!

Catch you tomorrow.

Hi Jules, great card, good use of 'Christmas Papers' and the stamp is fab - like you're use of the vine leaves too. The heart is well hidden in this card - I really had to strain my eyes to see it :) Elizabeth x

Paula Gale said...

Hi Jules

What a classy card - classy colours... I can't find the heart... at first I thought it was on the wine bottle label, but I'm not convinced its a heart - more a shield shape... so where is it... I'm a bit rubbish at spot the difference too.

Hope you are well... I know where I can come for inspiration when I'm having a dry spell.

happy crafting
