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.

Baby George

Hi Everyone

Well the Bank Holiday is over . . . and the crafting has to slow down again :-(

Well it will slow down in physical production .. .. .. but not in my head.

What a fantastic break it was. Lots and lots and lots of crafting done and I now need to tidy up my workspace before I can start again.

Here is one of my favourite creations. Not because it is anything fantastic - but because of the reason I made it.

This card is for my youngest son to give his best friend from school. He became a Daddy over the weekend to "Baby George".

It is also one of my favourite creations because I just love the stamps I used. They are Elzybells stamps and I like using them so much. I always buy them "un-mounted" and you can buy loads of them for the price of a regular stamp. Well worth a look - not only at the stamps available but the "inspiration gallery" and blog of creations. So many fantastic ideas.

So here it is my card:

To make this card I used very little.. ..

Images - Elzybells
Background paper - Funky Fairy "Gorjuss Ginghams"
Diamond Stickles
Ribbon from stash box

The images were coloured with Promarkers and I paper pieced the image with a little bit of scrap paper from my "little bits" box. I think this was a Funky Hand paper.

I have used the baby image quite a few times before but have been waiting for an excuse to use the writing / tiny images on the other stamp. I really enjoyed colouring all the little baby bits in - especially the little teddy!

Well - back to work today and tonight I need to give a pint of my blood away.

Thanks for calling by and if Cat (my DIL) looks in - Happy Birthday!!! I hope you like your pressies - have a great day xx

Love Jules xx

This is card is perfect Jules. The whole thing works so well.

I have to make a couple of 'baby' cards this week as my niece had a little girl on Sunday so must do one for her and her partner and also one for my lovely brother on becoming a Grandad. He's on his own now so that little girl is going to become his life.
