My photo
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 your day has gone well .. .. we have ended up with the much needed rain again today.  Good job really or else I would only have made even more ironing to add onto the mountain that is accumulating!!

My day has flown by .. but at least I have a share for you today

This used:

Image:  Digistamp Boutique "Pretty Shoes"
Backing Papers and Sentiment:  Pink Petticoat
Martha Stewart Punch:  Doily Lace
Woodware Punches:  Tag and Daisies
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Glamour Dust
Brad, Ribbon, Cord and eyelet from the Stash Box

Yes .. .. I would quite like a pair of shoes like those LOL!!!  Much more exciting than what I normally wear that's for sure!!

So an up-date on my scrummy carrier bags I posted about yesterday.

I got an email this morning saying that my order was on its way .. .. and would be delivered by "Colin" between 12.05 and 13.05 and if today isn't convenient then just click and change the day .. .. I am so impressed!!

Of course today was fine .. .. and Colin arrived .. .. at 12.08 with my order .. .. and as for my carrier bags .. .. .. ..  I love them!!!

Time to get cracking on a mega printing job now .. ..  what's the betting the next thing I need to order will be ink!!!

I'd like the slim feet that would fit into these shoes!!!! Wide feet and size 3 and a half don't go together!
Gorgeous card Jules - and great service from the bag supplier!

Debbie said...

Heh Jules, they are very pretty shoes but may hurt your tootsies l think!

Lovely card, particularly like the little tag with the brad. It's very feminine with lovely colours.

Have a great night xx

Hi Jules, my turn to be catching up on your posts. I'm retired so why I am so busy I have no idea. Like you, I'd love to have a nice wee stock of cards/projects as a back up for posting on the days when I haven't accomplished a thing! Love your carrier bags too and am equally impressed with the customer and delivery service - so refreshing :) Beautiful card, as usual, love the shoes and at one time had a wardrobe full of similar but now there is no way my poor arthritic feet could get into them :( The flower is gorgeous. Elizabeth x

Bernie said...

WOW talk about amazing service Jules. Glad you are happy with the bags, hope they work to perfection for you.

LOVE your card! Those shoes are to cute. Lovely papers and of course I love your flower.

Beryl said...

Isn't it great when a delivery comes exactly when it says it will. It restores your faith somewhat doesn't it. Your card is lovely and the shoes do look gorgeous but I doubt if I'd even be able to walk in anything like those these days. Pity that.

Sue said...

Ooh this is gorgeous Jules! I love those shoes and they would be perfect for you with the hearts!! :-)
Gorgeous papers and I love the gingham flower!! So pretty!
Your carrier bags look really scrummy! I love companies that are efficent and you know when delivery will be. I know of one courier company and they come between 6.30-7.40am!!!! in winter it is a right pain - means getting up in the dark in your pj's!!! LOL I avoid them like the plague if possible. Thankfully not many companies use them!!
Hope you're having a good week
Love Sue xx

Cynthia said...

I'm SO glad the bags are perfect for your needs! They looked so sweet! As for the card...well, yes, I too would love shoes like that! Really cute card too. Love the colors!!

Fantastic card. Totally brilliant. xxx

Claire said...

Fab card Jules, who wouldn't love these shoes. The bags are just perfect for you, it all fits beautifully toghether now. Perhaps I should lookfor something more romantic than a box for my brides. I do wrap the invitations in white tissue paper but they go in a plain box as there are always so many of them. xxxxxx

Bev Henwood said...
