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

Happy Wednesday .. .. I hope you are all managing to keep warm!!

Our snow has just about disappeared now but we are promised quite a dollop of the old white stuff come Friday morning!!!  Eeeekkk!!!   We will have to wait and see!!

Wedding work has been the order of the day today so my share is something I created during my "no internet" stint last week and continues the Valentine theme!


This used:

Papers:  First Edition J'adore
Sentiment:  Computer Generated
Nestabilities:  Heart
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Silver Embossing Powder
Ribbon, Skeleton Leaves, Pin and Metallic Cord from my Stash Box

There is a special happening going on in blogland and the lovely lady who is Darnell (and Mr Mister) are celebrating their wedding anniversary today .. .. sorry I couldn't post an anniversary card for you today .. .. .. but a Valentine card is a pretty close second.

I hope you have had a wonderful day Darnell .. .. and thank you for always making me smile xxx  (Anyone in need of a good chuckle on a regular basis needs to sign up to Darnell's blog.  She is a laugh a minute.

Have a good rest of the day!

Heh Jules, welcome back. Blog hopping isn't the same without your daily posts.

Lovely Valentine card, your creamy, soft colours are beautiful and l think the ribbon is so pretty.

No snow here to speak of but as you said, Friday is meant to be the day - oh dear! Do you think we started snow watch last year about the same time of year or a little later?

Hope you are well? So pleased your back on-line, no Internet is like having no hair straighteners, life just isn't worth living without them lol

Have a nice night xx


Oooooooh Jules - this is delicious!! Love the stitched panels and the colour combination - the pink looks fabulous with the neutrals. As for the ribbon and embellishments - they are LUSH!

Our snow has almost disappeared too, but yes, there is more forecast for the next day or three!
Keep warm - hugs, Sylvia xx

Hi Jules, late this evening and I was about to shut down when I spotted your gorgeous card. I love the less than usual colour combination for a Valentine and the black skeleton leaves are fab.

No snow here yet, but it's freezing - too cold for me. Hugs, Elizabeth xx

A fabulously beautiful Anniversary card. Those paper combos are super together, and would never have thought of popping those leaves on the heart & off it, gotta remember that touch. I know Darnell & Mr. just loved this as much as I did! Great card. TFS
