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 Friday.  I hope you have all been having a good week whilst I have been beavering away at trying to reduce my do list.  I love it each time I am able to cross something off it .. .. but also love it when I add new missions too!  Am I normal?  Probably not!! LOL!!

One of the "must" makes of this week that I am able to share is a birthday card for my super lovely baby Sis using some of her favourite colours .. .. .. .. I think she must be an Autumn girl!

This used:

X-Cut Mini Heart Die Set
Sentiment:  Lili of the Valley Sentiment Tags
First Edition Backing Papers "New Leaf"
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Ribbon, Metallic Cord and Eyelet

Have you managed to spot the heart today?  LOL!!

I met up with one of my brides yesterday as we are starting work on all of her venue stationery ready for her October wedding .. .. then tomorrow it is a sparkly new bride who is hopefully just about to start her journey with me.  We have already shared lots of emails and photographs and I feel like I know her already.

I get to meet so many lovely people .. .. I am so fortunate .. .. every day is different and every day is enjoyable .. .. I just wish they would last longer!

Have a good Friday and a great weekend when it arrives.

Love Jules xx

Such a beautiful card for your sister Jules. Such a clever idea to use two sizes of hearts for your flower and your stitching adds so much to your cards. I love your selection of pretty papers. Have a lovely weekend. Barbxx
