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

I hope your Thursday has been a good one.

Once again I find myself trying to fit far too much into my day .. .. but at least dinner will be nice and easy tonight.  I have had a beef stew simmering away for a few hours and just need to drop some dumplings in which I made earlier .. .. yummy!!!

So just a quick share today .. .. super quick and simple

This used:  

Image:  Penny Black "1665K" Cheesecake Party
Sentiment:  Pink Petticoat
Backing Papers:  My Minds Eye "On the Sunny Side"

So there we go .. .. even my ingredient list is short and sweet tonight.

Not sure what is happening with my pictures when I upload them at the moment.  They keep appearing in a different order and don't like being moved .. .. but never mind.  At least I can post which is a lot more than I could do a couple of weeks ago.

Have a lovely evening everyone. 

Catch you again tomorrow.

Another little cutie Jules, you just gotta love those little mice! Thanks for the comment on my photos yesterday, that picture of hubby described his mood to a tee! He was indeed cold & miserable all the time we were out, bless 'im. lol. By the way the word you were looking for to describe the photo is perspective :-)

Beryl said...

Yes I've had a good Thursday thank you. I managed to get into town to meet a friend for coffee and I've just got in from dancing the first time for nearly two weeks. The snow is at last melting round here but the snow on the pavement is still quite deep and the road is compacted snow (ice this time of night).
Hope you enjoyed your stew - same for me but one I made earlier and just had to be defrosted and heated up.
A delightful image on your card - beautifully coloured and a lovely design.

This is a fab card Jules.

I have a little story for you:

I was looking at your gorgeous cards in this months Quick Cards made easy with my youngest son and explained to him that all of your cards have a heart on them somewhere. When we had finished looking through them all and had found all of the little hearts, my son announced that from this day on you would be known as 'Jules - Queen of Hearts' as your cards are so pretty and it was such fun looking for the hearts.

So there you go, you are now royalty - at least in our house you are.

Your cards were all gorgeous by the way.
