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 Monday!

Bright sunshine and clear blue skies here (at the moment)!  Let's hope it lasts.

Nice and early with my Monday's Male card today .. .. because it was made last week.  Oh to be this ahead of my blog posts every day.

So here we go:

This used:

Craftwork Cards:  "The Potting Shed" for the image, papers and sentiment
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
My trusty sewing machine

and that is it!!  

I really enjoyed making this card.  I love the soft colours of the collection very much and this layout gave me chance to have a really good "sewing fix" which I have been missing whilst tying all of those lovely wedding ribbons!

Catch you again tomorrow (hopefully) with a Teeny, Tiny Tuesday offering.

Have a good start to a sparkly brand new week!

Love Jules xx

Well, Jules, this is just wonderful. I've been peeking at your blog a bit just now, and your work is amazing. So clean and bright and fresh. I love all your stitching; that's something I'll never get to, myself. Thank you for stopping by my blog; feel free to come back anytime!

Great card and design, love your sewing and the lovely papers.
It seems that it is the women that do the gardening round here but I suppose you could still use that with a flowery background.

Super card for a gardening male but would equally well suit a keen lady gardener.
