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 are all at home snuggled up, warm and dry!!!  What a day .. .. so much rain!!  Apparently it needs to rain like this until Christmas to get us back on track with our water supplies .. .. eeekk!!!

The good side of it raining so heavily is if it rains like this all over the weekend I can't be expected to go out into the garden and make any token gestures can I? .. ..  lazy madam!!  Just lifting the plants in and out of the garage to give them a taste of English weather will be enough I feel!!

So after a week of male cards .. .. I played with my pretty stuff tonight and it simply holds lots of my favourite things.

This used:

Sentiment:  Pink Petticoat
Backing Papers:  GCD Studios "Ella Blue"
Martha Stewart Punch:  Doily Lace
X-Cut Dies:  Speech Bubbles
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Leone Em Pty Punch:  Ash Branch
Marianne Design Dies:  English Rose  and  Butterfly 3
Glamour Dust
Ribbon and Pearls from the Stash Box

So there we go "a few" of my favourite things.

My pictures turned out much better tonight after my early morning clear up LOL!!  I feel a lot better for that.  

Sorry I am a bit of a stranger on everyone's blogs at the moment.  Not sure when I will be able to catch up with you all .. .. but I am trying I promise.  Sorry :-(

There is just so much I need to get done on the wedding front, and for card orders, that I am having to be super strict with myself and switch my computer off and just have emails going to my phone.  

Everyone is so kind in still calling by here - I do appreciate it.

Take care and have a good weekend.

Hi Jules, beautiful card. I like the lovely colour combination and the flowers are stunning. Struggled to see the heart to begin with but spotted it eventually :) Although you are drowning in much wanted rain, up here we are enjoying blue skies and sunshine. However, if it is any consolation, it's cold, brrr! Good luck with all the wedding work and hope you have a lovely weekend. Elizabeth x

Jules, you've done it again! Made me so wish I had your eye for detail and colour. This is divine.

Don't sweat it, the posts will still be there when you get a chance and just in case you hadn't noticed, I don't comment on all of your posts! Hehe

OK, new favorite card?? Yes, yes I think so. LOVE the colors. And the sparkles. And that lovely butterfly. And the tiny flowers with their tiny pearls. And the paper. And the sentiment. *sigh*

My fave papers here Jules - love this pad.. am guilty of using them only very rarely! Love the bow - it sits so well.. I'd have opted for the blue/grey but this is just gorgeous. Don't work too hard! x

This is so beautiful - I love the colours, the papers and those flowers are gorgeous.
Iknow what it's like not being able to get round the blogs when other things get in the way so no need to apoligise as far as I am concerned. You are still sharing your treasures with us - and that's what really matters.

I'm doing a long overdue blog catchup Jules and looking at all the posts but was only going to leave a comment on the latest one. This one though I just had to leave an individual comment on because it took my breath away as soon as I scrolled onto it. IT IS ABSOLUTELY GLORIOUS!!! The colours are to die for and I love the embellishments. In fact, I could say for me personally, it is the perfect card.
