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 Sunday!

I hope you have all had a lovely weekend.  I was pleased that the snow decided to melt as quickly as it fell.

Our weekend has been very enjoyable .. .. and has sped by in the blink of an eye .. .. as they always do .. .. but I am all ready for a new week to begin tomorrow.  Yay!!  

I wonder if I am the only person who actually loves Monday mornings and the thought of a new working week starting?  I spend part of every weekend organising and scheduling all that needs to be fitted in during the next few days.  Next week certainly needs to be super productive with lots of lovely wedding work to get my teeth into!

But with there being a big shortage of cards in my little world at the moment I need to pull quite a few of those in too.

I have no new baby cards at all so decided I would gather some snippets together and make one of those .. .. and here it is:

As always on a Sunday I am super lazy and do not list my ingredients but if there is anything you would like to know then please just ask away and I will do my best to help.

There shouldn't be any problem in finding a heart today .. .. ... there are lots to go at today that's for sure!  LOL!!

I started my card by following Sketch Number Twenty Five from my little sketch library which you can find on the tab at the start of my blog

but I did stray from it a little with regards the embellishments.

So that is me for today.  Enjoy the rest of today.

Catch you again soon.

Missed this yesterday but saw it this morning and very cheekily sort of cased your design for 2 First Birthday cards, thanks, didn't use the same image though.
Thanks again and will link to this if I post on my blog.

This really is such a very pretty card Jules. The stitching on all the layers looks beautiful. This is such a pretty little stamp which I've not used for such a long time. Barbxx
