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 Sunday!

I hope you are having a lovely weekend.

Mine is going well with quite a few in-roads made into several of the current missions on my crafty list .. .. but for all of you who have kindly contacted to say I must remember to "find some time to myself" .. .. thank you for your concern .. .. but please don't worry.  I find some of that too and last night Mr Heart and I hit the town and enjoyed a meal out together.

The crafty clear up went well too and I have been getting the Christmas supplies sorted ready for getting some cards into that rather empty "festive box".

So many half used Christmas pads that I am going to try and use those up so they are out of the way. 

My snippet make today made a tiny dent in one pack:

As always on a Sunday I am super lazy and do not list my ingredients but if there is anything you wish to know then please just ask.

I am going to run along to Pixie's Snippets Playground to share my creation with the other playmates .. .. and as I have actually managed to make a Christmas card whilst the Rudolph Day Challenge is still live I am sharing it there too.   Woo hoo!!  

So that is me for today.

Off to finish making 90 of these little beauties ready for an up and coming wedding.

Enjoy the rest of your day and I will hopefully catch you again soon.

Love Jules xx

Super festive card and as always I'm in awe of your stitching. I reckon you will be a dab hand at the decorations by the time you've made all 90 - they are great.

Gorgeous little frilly things, don't know quite what they are but love them, take care, Kate x

Liz said...

Super card, Jules, love the papers you've used. Your gorgeous pink and black creations look intriguing. I'm trying to work out if they are hair decorations or decorations for something else.

Visiting your blog today with my Rudolph Days DT members hat on. Thanks for joining in the challenge - Good Luck! xx

What a super card Jules! So pretty and I'm trying to work out if the backing is strips of ribbon or paper - a lovely make!

My guess is that those fabulous pink and black makes are table favours - stunningly dramatic.

Lovely to see you in the Snippets Playground :)

Oh my goodness, Jules! It is so lovely to see you dropping by with an entry for /rudolph Days Challenge. I know how busy you are and feel quite honoured!

Your card is so striking. I really like the bold colours. The auqua and hot pink are so great together! Your stitching is so perfect too! I forgot about that...always wanted to try that on a card!

Thanks for taking part in the June Rudolph Days Challenge.

Gorgeous card Jules. I love the colours you have chosen. Great little wedding makes - you will be glad when number 90 is finished. I could not imagine sitting down to make 90 of anything.
