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!  I hope your week has got off to a good start.

Can you believe I had to put a jumper on this morning as it was a tad chilly!!!  What's that all about? Please don't say that summer is on it's way out because I am not at all ready for that yet!! 

So back with my daily themes but I am changing them slightly.  My "Thursday's child" theme has been scrapped as I have decided a boy card works as a Monday's Male Card, and the little girl cards will fit into Feminine Friday .. .. which leaves Thursday's open for a theme I wish I had started ages ago .. .. but  more about that later in the week.

Today Monday's male is sporting a baby boy card .. .. which uses a very old image that came to the top of the pile whilst re-organising my world last week.  Not that re-organising has been a total success.  How long did it take me to find where I decided was the best place to store my hot glue gun?!?!!?

It would appear that there is a baby boy boom going on at the moment and I can't make cards for them quickly enough .. .. so here we go with one I made last week


This used

Image:  Docrafts "Forever Friends"
Backing Paper and Sentiment: Pink Petticoat (sadly no longer trading)
Spellbinder Nestabilities:  Classic Circles and Scalloped Circles
Distress Ink Pad  Tumbled Glass
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
My Trusty Sewing Machine

Many thanks for the lovely comments and emails on my post of yesterday.  I am so pleased folk enjoyed looking .. .. and yes .. .. Marcie did see it and was also over the moon to see her name on the computer screen.  She said I made her feel like a movie star!   Bless her.  She is such a lovely person.

I will catch you again tomorrow with my Teeny Tiny Tuesday card.

Love Jules xx
