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 .. .. is everyone else having to check what day it is?  I have completely lost track!

Trying to get back into my themes again now that Christmas has come and gone and Monday sports male cards.  Here is today's offering:

This used

Image, Sentiment and Papers are all from a Craftwork Cards Collection:  "The Potting Shed" (just love the colours in this collection so much).
Spellbinder Nestabilities:  Classic Circles
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Woodware Punch

and that is it.

Today Mr Heart and I removed all traces of Christmas from our home .. .. boo hoo .. .. we really weren't ready for Christmas to be over yet, for some reason it has felt extra special this year.

Catch you again soon.

Great card for a chap Jules, really like the design too. We too have de-Christmassed our house today, it looks very sad now!! Still Christmas 2017 will be here in the blink of an eye!! xx

A super card Jules, great design.
It always looks a bit stark when the Christmas decorations are taken down but it is nice to get back to some sort of normality.

A lovely card, Jules, perfect for any gardener! (Ie not me! I have an uncanny ability to kill plants.)

We took down our decorations and tree today, too. Oh my, it took ages to sweep and then hoover up the needles! I'm sure that I'll be finding needles all year! But it's worth having a real tree, I think, because the scent is delicious!

love and best wishes for 2017

Great card for a male or a lady even if she likes her garden. I've been checking what day it is for well over a week now - back to normality next week maybe.

I'm always confused on what day it is! lol Love your card Jules. The paper is fabulous, who wouldn't love a gardening theme?! The wood paper is awesome and goes so well with the gardening theme. Love that flower pot image too! Hugs, Brenda
