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.

DRESSED UP

Hi Everyone

Hope you have all had a good day.

It has seemed really cool here today .. .. nearly needed a jumper on!!!  What's that all about?

I have been seeing a lovely new "happy couple" for the first time this evening .. .. I was hoping there would be bright sparkly sunshine for looking at card and ribbon samples but instead we had to make do with the electric lights!  That just didn't seem right for an early summer evening!  

So now just time for a quick share ahead of a late meal:





This used:

Image:  Penny Black "2082E" Dressed Up
Sentiment:  Pink Petticoat
Backing Papers:  Well to be honest these are so old that I don't know!!! Sorry :-(  I have tried to find out off the old tinternet but it was taking me longer to do that than it did  to make the card in the first place .. .. so I have given up!!  LOL!!  The stupid thing is I can remember exactly where I bought it all those years ago!!!
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Diamond Stickles
ProMarkers
Metallic Cord

Short and sweet  .. .. catch you again soon.

Love

Hi Jules, When I saw your card tonight I recognised the paper immediately so I dug it out of my old paper stash when you mentioned you didn't know what it was called. It is Dovecraft 6x6 Designer Paper Pack - Masculine by Jayne Bentley. I have no idea how old it is either but it must be 5 or 6 years old. I like your card very much as well, I do think craft card suits mens cards. Paulinexx

I think the problem is Jules is that you have not realised we are in the middle of British summertime!!! If it's any cancellation last year on October 1st was scorching.
I love your card. Such a gorgeous little chappie.

I've got those papers Jules - I got them several years ago in a craft shop in Llandudno. They are Dovecraft. Great card and the image is a cutie - but I can't help seeing the soles of his feet as angry birds! Funny how the mind plays tricks isn't it.
