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 Bank Holiday Monday!!

We have had a very lazy start to the day here in the House of Hearts  .. .. not like my usual Monday mornings at all.  

But I did escape into my little craft pod for a while to create my male card for this week:

This used:

Image:  Penny Black "2349K" Best of luck!
Sentiment:  Clearly Besotted "Laugh Out Loud" and Digistamp Boutique Sentiment Bundle "Everyday"
Backing Papers:  Docrafts "Best of British"
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Nestabilities:  Mega Rectangles
Twine from my crafty stash box

and that is it!

Thank you to everyone who has been taking part in the digital paper giveaway on my post here. I have been really enjoying reading everyone's special childhood memories.  Everyone's seem based around family as a whole or special family members we have been particularly close to, mixed with Christmas or summer holidays and each and every one has touched me in different ways.  I think we would all love to be able to whizz back to share one of those days again.

There is still time to add your special memory to the post.  Comments will count right up until 12.00 midnight BST.

I will let you know tomorrow who is the lucky winner of 4 downloads, and the 4 blog pals who will receive 1 download courtesy of the lovely Jo from TinkerNCo Digital

Enjoy the rest of your bank holiday .. .. ahead of another week where we won't know what day of the week it is LOL!!

Love Jules xx
