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 your week is going well.

I had a lovely surprise last night.  I was busy trying to get my ironing all up to date and thought it was nearly 10.00pm as I was finishing  .. .. I packed everything away only to discover it was only nearly 9.00pm!! What a lovely surprise that was!!  A whole extra hour that I didn't think I had!

Now why can't that happen with days too?  Why do I never think it is Wednesday .. .. but suddenly discover it is Tuesday?  LOL!!!

Anyway, there is definitely a birthday card shortage here in the House of Hearts so I need to make some super fast ones .. .. nothing complicated .. .. just cute and nice to give:

This used:

Image:  Penny Black "2178J" Hello Present
Sentiment:  Pink Petticoat "Tiny Celebration Sentiments"
Backing Papers:  Kaisercraft "Key to My Heart"
Go Kreate Dies:  Large Frames Scalloped Squares
Diamond Stickles
Ribbon and Pearlsw from my Stash Box

and that is me for today.

Table plan planning, place names and favour boxes are top of the list today so off I scoot!!!

Catch you again soon .. .. hopefully.

You say simple, I say amazing. Love how you put papers together as you know and can take these cute images-which I just adore these little hedgehogs and make such an elegant looking card!

These colours are great together! I need to remember to allow more room when i stamp off my images as I really like the senitment on the image diecut!

LOVE your card Jules - so pretty with the soft colours and I love those hedgies. Your glittery edges are so neat - I don't know how you get it so neat - you must have so much patience (or is there a trick to it?).

I love it when you find you have an extra hour that you didn't expect. Sometimes when there is a public holiday, I get my days mixed up and find I have an extra day - LOVE it when that happens LOL!
