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 Thursday!

I hope the weather is suiting everyone and you are having a good week.  After me moaning about the rain the other day we seem to have had some lovely sunshine filled days .. .. without it being too hot!

My week seems to have disappeared again in the blink of an eye!  I can't believe it is Friday again tomorrow!!

I met up with a lovely new bride and her Mum yesterday .. .. and if all goes ahead I will have a Valentine's Day wedding to add to my list!! How romantic will that be?  I guess that means in the years to come her husband will have to remember to buy two cards for the same day.  An anniversary card "and" a valentine card!!  But he might save a bit of money on the "romantic meal" front as they will be able to celebrate both at the same time won't they. LOL!!

Before I share today's creation with you I just wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone who left such lovely comments on my previous post about my Son's music.  I am so happy some of you were able to listen .. .. and yes, I am proud of him.  But then again I am proud of my whole family, (I don't want any of them thinking I have a favourite!!  They are all super special and make my life complete!!).

My Son enjoyed reading your comments too and he was well chuffed that one young lady was going to put it on her iPod for listening to in the car!

Anyway, round to my share for today, which is for entering into the Sketch Saturday Challenge for this week:

This used:

Image and Sentiment:  The Greeting Farm "Cake Topper"
Backing Papers:  Pink Petticoat "Tiniest Pretty Little Hearts" and "Pinstripes"
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Spellbinder Nestabilities:  Hearts
ProMarkers and Chalk
Crystal Stickles
Ribbon, cord and eyelet from my stash box

and here is the lovely sketch I followed .. .. in case you fancy playing along.

Enjoy the rest of your day and I'll hopefully see you again soon.

Oh Wow, another beautiful card Jules and a gorgeous image, perfectly coloured and great colours. Good luck with the challenge. I will get around to listening to your son's music it's just a tad hectic here with holiday time. Once I'm back I'll hook it up to play through the computer whilst crafting. As long as it's not heavy metal I should be fine!

Oh Jules! What a gorgeous card you have made here. Love the image.

Elizabeth said...

Gorgeous card, Jules, and absolutely no trouble finding the heart(s)on this one. You can't have favourites with your children and when the time comes you will find that applies to grandchildren too ... I tell all mine that I love them all equally and it's true even though they are all, all 9 of them, so different. Hugs, Elizabeth xx

Di said...

Aw, such a cute couple - and a fabulous card Jules. Love the way you've fastened the two hearts together.

Len listened to your son's music and thinks it ought to be played on Nirvana Radio!

Hugs, Di xx
