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

I hope you are all enjoying Father's day.

I know (like me) lots of you no longer have your special Dad physically alongside you today .. .. but they will always be in our hearts, memories and dreams.

As sad as it is for them not to be with us, we just have to be grateful that we had father's that were special and meant so much to us for the time they were here. (It has taken me a long time to reach this level of acceptance though but thankfully I have - I love and miss my Dad so much).

My hubby and son liked the Father's day card I made the other evening and hubby is currently watching a film that our eldest son and his wife sent him as a present .. .. the new James Bond film. Once this is finished we are off out for an Indian meal. Only an hour or so before we set off .. .. .. I'm starving!!!

Whilst hubby watched his film I made my Penny Black Challenge card for this week. The theme was embossing.

Here is what I created:

This used:

Image: Penny Black 2076J "Roses for You"
Sentiment: Hero Arts C2702 "Bouquet of Good Wishes"
Backing paper: Sizzix Little Sizzles "Country"
Cuttlebug embossing folder: "Script"
Nestablities: Circles and Large Scalloped Circles
Ribbon: From the lovely lady at our local market
Promarker Pens

Well that is it for today folks - thanks for calling by.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Love Jules xx

This is a fabulous card Jules. The embossing looks great and I love your ribbon. The sentiment suits the image so well and the colour scheme is just gorgeous.
I hope you enjoy your meal this evening.

Stunning card Jules.

Echo all you say about our Dad's as you already know, dosent matter is it's this year like mine or nineteen like yours, it still hurts the same. But they are in our hearts and that's the important thing.

Hope the Indian is good.
