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.

Hi Everyone

Well .. .. Friday night is here again with the promise of a weekend of fun (I hope).

Although really Thursday night should now be my Friday night because my days at work have changed.

I now have the super luxury of a four day weekend!!! Wow .. .. how much crafting is that???? I am in the office three days a week and home for four! Heaven.

But because my hubby doesn't finish work until Friday night things will stay the same. We will still celebrate the weekend on a Friday night with hubby's special cooking treat.

Though I am in rather bad books tonight. Hubby found a fantastic holiday place and booked it tonight and we have just realised that one of the weekends it spans is a local Craft Festival weekend .. .. one that I take part in over two days. I have announced that "I can't miss the Festival!!!".

I think I am forgiven .. .. .. hubby knows how much it means to me .. .. .. we just need to find some more dates for the holiday that fit in with everything else that is happening.

Over to tonight's creation:

This was made using:

Image: Stamposaurus "Large Tractor" from Apple Blossom Farm
Image: Inca Stamps "470-AA Sheep
Backing Paper: The English Paper Company and Laura Ashley
Punches: Woodware Inverted Corner Rounder and Fiskars heart punch
Sentiment: Woodware FRCL079 "Male Relatives"
Promarkers and chalks for colouring
Hot Fix metal studs

This card is also for the lady who ordered the "Goth" creation I showed earlier this week. I am sure you can guess that this card is for her brother who is a farmer. She loved the Goth card - hopefully she will love this too.

I hope everyone has a brilliant weekend .. .. I am now off to make amends with my hubby!!!!

Thanks for calling by

Love Jules xx
