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!

This week seems to have flown by rather quickly!  

I hope this isn't a sign of things to come for 2017.  I would like 2017 to be full of weeks that last as long as they did when I was about 10 .. .. a week at school seemed to last a lifetime (but to be fair things weren't as exciting then as they are now). 

It is weddings all the way for me today, so just a quick post to show you some of the work I did for Issue 161 of Quick Cards Made Easy which has now hit the shops.

My first commission was to showcase the "masking" technique and this is one of the cards from the collection:

and I also worked on a "stacked die cutting" commission

I don't normally talk about the free cover gifts .. .. I don't know why because they are always super useful .. .. and this month it is a whole set of images and sentiments for creating scenes with, along with downloadable digi papers.

This is a card I created with the set

So that is me for today

Off to make some brides happy now!

OMGosh Jules, your cards are amazing and so cute!!! No wonder you are the Queen of cards!!! I love the scenes you have created, I struggle with masking sometimes, but am slowing getting the hang of it...I think. lol Even as cute as your scenes are, I am totally loved your stack dies card in the middle. I just love that look and just love the simplicity of that card. Hugs, Brenda
