My photo
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.

I found it, Yay! The heart that is.

No wonder you like him Jules, he's a right cheeky little chap isn't he.

Like the colours you selected to co-ordinate with the background papers.

I had to enlarge the photo but I found the heart! I'm beginning to really fall for these images too - Skater Ian has attitude (but not too much). This is a great card and you've coloured the image perfectly.

Hi Anonymous (? Steve).

Unfortunately no, I didn't draw Skater Boy Ian. But I wish I could draw wonderful images like this.

Skater Boy Ian is a rubber stamp I purchased from The Greetings Farm. They do lots of characters such as this.

Thanks for your comment.

Love Jules xx
