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 life is being kind to you all .. .. and if not that things improve for you "quickly".

My teeny tiny 3.5 x 3.5 inch creation was supposed to have made an appearance yesterday.  It was made and ready for posting by 8.15am.  I took my pictures and started to write my post .. .. and then the day took hold and I seemed to be jumping from one job to another all day and got no further forward with my blog share.

In fact, it wasn't until I went to close my computer down as Mr Heart and I gave in for the day that I found my half written post!!  So I deleted that and have started again today LOL!!

So here we go:

This used:

Image:  Hampton Arts "KN2436" Watermelon Bud (one of the very first stamps I bought)
Backing papers:  Mixture of leftovers that just seemed to go together
Sentiment:  Lili of the Valley
Spellbinders:  Lacey Squares and Classic Squares
Glamour Dust
Ribbon and Pearls from My Crafty Stash Box
My Trusty Sewing Machine
We R Memory Keepers Envelope Board

I am going to make a very rare appearance in Pixie's Snippets Playground challenge too as all the papers and card I used were snippets from my every growing collection of "leftovers" .. .. even the trendy pink insert LOL!!

So that is me.  Off to link up in the playground and then get cracking on today!

Have a good day everyone.

Is anyone else having a panic about Christmas yet?  I haven't made a single Christmas card yet this year .. .. and this time last year I had a box three-quarters full already!!  Eeekk!!

It is great that you have managed to blog jules. A beautiful card. The falling hearts reminded me of Pink Petticoat. Have you seen her new French Country Collection? A bit yummy, so don't look if you don't want to spend any pennies :-) Lynn x

What a lovely teensy card! I always enjoy these special tiny creations you do!
This one has such a lovely feminine feel.

Sorry i have not been by visiting for so long. Moving and the aftermath of getting settled has thrown me for a loop! Can't seem to get my routines back...

What is it with Christmas?! Today I have had two reminders that it is only 7 months away & last week I had an e.mail reminding me to buy Christmas dies before they sold out lol!!

Anyway, perfectly pretty in pink card Jules, hope all is well with you too xx

A beautiful little card, Jules. Good to see you back in blogland. I was beginning to worry about you too. Good to hear your absence has been for mainly good reasons.
