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.

Oh! My! Word! Jules, these are so beautiful, I love them.
Love what you have done with the "hearts".
I made a card last week using your "circle" technique.
If I use it on my Blog I will mention where I got the idea.
Thank you for the inspiration
Have a great day

Love these both. They are so different. The first one scream happiness and springtime to me. Love the scrumptious colors and papers. The second cards has such a lovely vintage feel to it. I love that it is a Christmas card but not at all traditional. Wonderful!
