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!

Not quite so bright and beautiful here today .. .. in fact it is quite chilly and dull .. .. back to jumper weather!!

So Wednesday is the day I use up some of those white card offcuts.  I haven't made much of a dent in them yet .. ..  but every little helps.  

I know that quite a few of you are waiting for a white on white card to appear .. .. but I haven't mastered that yet!  I can't even believe how many shades of white there are in my box!!

But never mind .. . here is today's creation:

This used:

Image:  Docrafts "DCE907113" Meadow
Sentiment: Lili of the Valley - Sentiment Tags
Distress Inks:  Stormy Sky, Broken China and Peeled Paint
Wow! Embossing Powder:  White, Tickled Pink and Pink Sherbert
Nestabilities: Mega Squares
X-Cut:  Tiny Butterfly Punch (very old)
Raffia that had been saved from a flower bouquet

and that is it!

A little more white card used up!  Yay!!!

I will also put a few people out of their misery and show you where the heart was on Saturday

Hiding within the sentiment!!  Tee hee!!!  Pleased they aren't all super easy .. .. that would take away the fun wouldn't it ?!!?!

OK off I go .. .. a big "must do" list today so I had better get cracking.

Have a good day everyone!

Love Jules xx

I love everything about this Jules (as usual) pretty with all the various embossing colours and that super background. xx

A great card Jules and yes, there are so many different whites.
I've just read 'A Day in the Life Of' in QC too. It's ages ago that I first came across your blog with a tiny little article with your blog address and now you have a whole page!

I know what you mean about many different shades of white - black is much the same too I find. Love what you've done for this card today to use up some of your white card mountain.
