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!

Well it has been a super manic week with a few late night/early morning sessions needed to catch up with all those crafty missions .. ..  but I have kept my head down and got on with everything and am now happy to be finally back on track.

The impact of Mr Heart's jury service and annual leave is now behind me!!  Phew!!

So hopefully that means my blog will be back to normal soon too!

I thought I would wake it up after its week of slumber by sharing some of the commissions I was fortunate to be blessed with for Issue 155 of Quick Cards Made Easy magazine which should have hit the shops now.

My first share shows a couple of cards that were part of a set of
 Resist Embossing Technique makes.  

I love the heart one very much .. .. can't think why!  LOL!!  That lacy stamp is just gorgeous!!

then next is a card from a collection of
 Cutaway Technique makes

and I will finish with a card from a 
Stamp With Us! Commission 
which uses images from my favourite stamp makers of all time .. .. Penny Black! 

The stamps were a little different to my usual cute little Penny Black mice and hedgies but they are equally cute and just as enjoyable to colour!!

and that is me for today!

Hopefully tomorrow is going to see me back to my weekly themes and I will have a Thursday's Child card to share.

Have a lovely evening.  Hopefully it will be a little cooler and more comfortable than last night.  The heavens have opened here and the thunder storms are just starting too, so fingers crossed everywhere will be a much fresher place soon!

Love Jules xx

Lovely to see your mag makes - gorgeous! And did I see some not-so-square cards?! I am glad you have survived the mini heatwave. The room I craft in has been so hot I am wondering whether I have dried up inkpads by now!! Lynn x

Welcome back! Some great makes - agree about the lacy heart stamp and that PB one is so amusing and great for lots of occasions I'm sure. Hopefully the days (and nights) will be a bit cooler soon.

Wow Jules all are amazing. I don't know how you find the time with all you have on your plate. I love the resist technique cards I don't do this enough. X
