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.

Dexter the Bear

Well cards don't make themselves much quicker than this one did.

Dexter arrived in the post on Saturday (whilst our visitors were with us) and he had to sit in his little plastic bag waiting to be used.

I couldn't wait to rip him out of his confined space, print him up and colour him.

A very basic card - but Dexter just had to be used - I couldn't wait any longer!!!

This card used:

Sugar Nellie - "Dexter the Bear"
Sentiment - Woodware FRCL004 "His Birthday"
Woodware Punch
Brads from the stash

So as I said a "simple card" - but at least Dexter gets his first airing. Awww I lurve him and his cute little jumper!!!

Thanks for calling by.
Love Jules xx

What a cute bear Jules. I can see why you couldn't wait to ink him up and you know what they say - 'Less is more' which perfectly applies to this lovely card.

Lovely card Jules, no wonder you wanted to rip the paper open to get him out. He's so cute! He is one of the Sugar Nellies I have resisted so far as I have quite a collection. Love the colours you have used and like the different coloured brads down the side. Hugs, Lainy xxx
