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.

No problem finding the hearts today

Hi Everyone

Well there should be no problems for anyone in finding the heart(s) today.

I have been asked to make a wedding card for a young woman to give .. .. .. but unfortunately I don't really know her style yet!! I was trusted to come up with a creation worth giving. I hope I haven't let the lady down.

Below are three creations for her to choose from. I have tried to make each one a different style in the hope that one will be suitable. (If not she still has Saturday to raid the shops LOL!!!).

So here we go (in no particular order) - weddings R me .. .. ..

All of these cards used backing papers from the DCWV "Wedding Prints" stack.

Card 1 used:

Sentiment - Studio g "On your Wedding Day"
Cuttlebug Nested Hearts Die
X Cut flower punch
Ribbon from Hobbycraft - Club Green
Gems from the Stash Box

Card 2 used:

Image - Elzybells (coloured with Promarkers)
Martha Stewart punched card (thanks Jackie xx)
Josey Rose - Hot Fix hearts
Diamond Stickles
Ribbon from my lovely market lady

Card 3 used:

Paper rose (mounted onto pearlised card - though this doesn't show up too well)
Sentiment - Elzybells (also on pearlised card)
Josey Rose - Hot Fix heart
Ribbon from a local craft store. (This ribbon had a thread running through it so you can "draw it up" to form the lovely ribbon flower).


So I wonder which will be chosen - if any!!!! We will have to wait and see.

I am looking forward to a special weekend. We have visitors coming to stay - my old boss (from when I first returned to work after having children - many, many years ago) and her husband. Who would have thought that the person who interviewed me all those years ago would end up as one of the very best friends a girl could have!! Looking forward to a real good "catch up".

Take care everyone and thanks for calling by.

Love Jules xx

They're all lovely Jules, but if I had to choose just one I'd go for the lilac one as the Elzybells stamp is so sweet. Hugs, Nicki

You did a fantastic job here Jules, managed to provide three cards that offer totally different styles. I would buy them all if I was her...

Three great cards Jules and that MS punch again just to make me jealous.

Have a great Sunday, mind you it might be crafting all day if your weather is anything like our, it's pouring down.
