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

Woo hoo .. .. Friday is here!!!

I love Friday as it is our Fish and Chip night plus the beginning of the weekend.

At least I have managed to be a bit earlier today with my share .. .. but that is simply because I was up super early as I had lots I wanted to do.   All house jobs finished by 8.00am .. .. .. including all the ironing .. .. .. so that's a team point for me!!

So as I felt well ahead of the game I did my share for today next .. .. .. ahead of getting stuck into lots and lots of wedding work that I wanted to have done and dusted by tonight.

I love it when I get up feeling "extra" hyper-active .. .. .. but it will mean that I will no doubt be fast asleep on the sofa by about 10.30pm !!!

Anway, here is my share for the day:

This used:

Image:  Teddy Bo
Sentiment:  Computer Generated
Backing Papers:  Free with Quick Cards Made Easy
Pinking Shears
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads

Oooops!!!!  Just noticed that Teddy Bo doesn't have any rosy cheeks.

I feel certain that if the wind is strong enough to fly a kite you would certainly have some rosy cheeks.  Will have to add those later!!

Have a great evening everyone and a fabby weekend.

Fabulous Jules!! Perfect papers to go with the image. I'm more bothered about him being trouserless than him not having rosy cheeks, lol!! I love these bears but their bare bottoms bother me ... a bit like those mouthless images.

Grenouille Greetings said...

Somebody grab hold of this bear! He needs an anchor or he will take off. All the colour has drained from his face from fear (hence no rosy cheeks). Lovely make! Hugs, Lesley

Elizabeth said...

Hi Jules, I'm surprised you are still up - where did you find the energy, whatever you're on I would like some of it:) Great card, love the bright and cheerful colours and the greeting is really nice too. The heart was a tad easier to spot compared with yesterday but you are getting really good at almost concealing them :)) Time for bed, methinks. Elizabeth x

Sue said...

Aww this is really sweet Jules! my fave bear!! he looks like he is having lots of fun with the kite!! Love the delish papers!
