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 Tuesday.  

Today is my Mum's birthday (HAPPY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY MUM! xxx).. .. and my lovely Sis is on holiday from work .. .. so we are going to have a little celebration lunch together.  It has been a long, long while since we have been able to do this so I am really looking forward to it.

This is the first of a few scheduled posts that I have managed to put together .... just to keep my blog awake whilst I am getting prepared for a wedding fayre at the weekend.

I have been collaborating with a local craftsman recently to bring a bit of extra quirkiness to my wedding range and hopefully some new items will be ready for taking with me on Sunday.  If not, well at least they will be ready for the Fayre in November, but I have everything crossed that they will be with me by Friday.

Anyway, round to my teeny, tiny card for this week ... which is a whole 3.5" square .. .. for anyone new to my little corner of blogland.

This used:

Backing Paper:  Dovecraft "Floral Muse"
Sentiment:  Stampin' Up!  "Lots of Thanks"
Wild Rose Studio Die:  Woodland Posy (well trimmed back)
Three of those paper flowers that never seem to disappear from my stash, folded into four and stuck down and topped with a flatbacked pearl.
Distress Ink:  Bundled Sage
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Ribbon and Twine from my Crafty Stash Box
We R Memory Keepers:  Envelope Punch Board

and there we go.  More little bits and pieces used up .. .. and you certainly don't need many for such a small card!

I hope the day is being kind to you.

Love Jules xx

Typical of me I wizzed a load of paper flowers that I have had for years and years when my craft room was painted a couple of moths ago and now I see this very clever idea that would have used them.
Love the card and the flowers.
Thanks for taking the time in your very busy life to look for that stamps for me but I have searched and searched too and it is definitely obsolete, please don't waste anymore of your precious time.
Thanks again.

Looks like you've shown us all what to do with hose flowers we all buy when we start crafting. I must admit I hate them but this is fabulous. I love the flowers. A great card Jules x
