A very warm welcome to my teeny, tiny part of the huge world of blogging. This is where I 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 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.

An Early Morning Creation

Hi Everyone

Just a very quick creation to share tonight - made at daft o'clock this morning.

I still have NEC goodies I am desperate to try out and just don't have enough hours in my day or days in my week to play with them - so it had to be an early start.

This is what I came up with. There wasn't much time to spare on it but I think it has turned out ok. I still liked it when I walked in the door tonight so that is a good sign!

To create this card I used:

Backing Paper - Funky Fairy Download "In with the Old"
Sentiment Stamp - Hero Arts
Die Cutting Frame - Go Kreate No 151005 (came across these at the NEC for the first time)
Cuttlebug Emossing Folder - Swiss Dots
Tiny label punch from Woodware
Heart punch from Fiskars
Ribbons, flowers and brads from stash box
Diamond Stickles

I hadn't seen the "Go Kreate" dies before (perhaps I am just behind the times) but they had quite a good range available. These work great in the Cuttlebug.

I discovered a new place to take a photograph tonight too. It may have worked out to be a better location .. .. .. I will know once my post is published!!!

Thanks for calling by - will catch up with you all again soon.

Love Jules xx
