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

Wednesday already!!!  

I hope this week has been a good one for you .. .. and if not that next week will be a million times better.

Here I am with my white card Wednesday make.  This week I have managed to use up three more pieces from the white card mountain!  Woo hoo!

I am still struggling with this theme but am loath to admit defeat just yet, because everyone seems to like them.  So I have tried to analyse why I always doubt the final results and have decided that it is because I am responsible for the whole creation .. .. whereas when I use backing papers most of the work has been done for me .. .. so more reasons to doubt what I am producing I suppose.

Anyway, here is what I have come up with this week as I dragged myself through the pain barrier:

This used:

Image and Sentiment:  Woodware Clear Stamps "Bubble Bloom Felicity"
Distress Inks:  Shabby Shutters and Picked Raspberry
Gold Embossing Powder
Woodware Tag Punch
Clear Wink of Stella Pen
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Ribbon, Gold Cord and Puffy Sticker from my crafty stash box

and that is me for today.  Short and sweet as I need to get back to that wedding work!

Never a dull moment here in the old House of Hearts.

Oh .. .. and Mr Heart got the rhubarb all planted in the lovely raised bed.  If only all the garden had the lovely manure and topsoil that the rhubarb has been treated to.  Much of our garden is like clay!! It just remains to be seen who gets to eat the most rhubarb .. .. us or the slugs that we seem to be overly blessed with this year!!!  Yuk!!!

Love Jules xx

Thanks for your comments as always and I've gone back to look at your Wednesday offerings. Somehow I missed the all white one you mentioned and just love it.
