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

Here I am .. .. very, very, very late.

Have spent the evening with a happy couple looking at table plans and favour boxes .. .. .. but still needed to have a play in my craft pod as I have had withdrawal symptoms!!

What with yesterday's football and lots of wedding work I have hardly touched my general craft stuff!!!

That will never do LOL!!

So trying to be super quick (for a change) here is my share for the day

This used:

Image:  LOTV
Sentiment:  Personal Impressions "Everyday Words To A Dear"
Backing Papers:  Wild Rose Studio "Wintry Christmas"
Martha Stewart Punch
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Woodware Punches:  Daisy
Ribbon and Cord from the Stash Box

I had a brilliant time at the football last night.  We won 2 - 1 which was great .. .. especially as the forecast from the lads in the pub was a 0 - 6 defeat!!  Oh they of little faith LOL!!!

Plus .. .. you will be pleased to know that the boots stood the test and didn't let any of the rain in!!  Yay!!!

Catch you earlier tomorrow (hopefully)

Lovely card, Jules, and great to hear you've found a wee bit of crafting time at last. I see you've used a patterned paper from a Christmas pack but you would never know it. Must go and look at my Christmas papers with a fresh eye. Good news about the footie and the boots ... amazing what can be done with our adhesives - I've even heard of a temporary repair being made to a car bumper for example, also a broken shower door :) Elizabeth x

Laura said...

Such a cute card Jules! Your colouring is fabulous! Do you have any tips on how to get the blush on the cheeks to blend in with the skin tone? It might be the colours I am using but I can never quite get that effect!
Glad you had a good time at the football and you boots didn't let you down!!
