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

What a hectic evening - never thought I would get here.

Just a quick card to share this evening that hasn't been made for anything in particular. Just for fun! I made the card early evening but just haven't had chance to post it.

This card used:

Images: Lace background - Inkadinkado "90355-Y" and Flower - Magenta "H0306"
Punches: Martha Stewart "Lace Doily" and Woodware "small label"
Sentiment: Pink Petticoat
Ribbon, thread, sticky gems

I love the lace stamp. I think it looks so "real". Sometimes I emboss it but this time it has just been stamped onto white card using black Stazon.

I think I am liking seeing white on my cards this week!

Must fly - I know I have lots of people to thank for leaving awards on their blogs for me but unfortunately I haven't had time to pick them up and mention them here tonight. But thank you very much and I promise to pick them up asap as it is so very kind of people to think of me.

In the meantime I must go and eat!!!

Thanks for calling by. By the way .. .. my followers returned yesterday .. .. Yay!!!

Love Jules xx

I love this card - I thought the lace was real until I looked. It's so impressive. Love this colour combo too.
Enjoy your day.

Hi Jules

Thank you for your lovely comments. I have been buzy with stamp addicts and orders for quite some time now but hopefully things are beginning to settle. Just had a look through your latest cards and they are all wonderful as usual. I had to look very closely as the background on this one as it does look like lace. Very elegant.

Happy crafting.

Love Gill x

It's lovely Jules, it does indeed look like lace and thought it was till I read more, then thought white emboss powder, but wrong again. Anyway very pretty card for "nothing in particular".
