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.

Hi Everyone

Made my way to my craft room finally - at around 9.00pm - as I needed a very quick card to celebrate some fantastic news.. .. .. my youngest son has been offered a job!! Yeah!!!

He was made redundant earlier this year but has this week been gainfully employed again and it was his second day today (lots of lovely training for him). He looks so happy. Well done Dude - I'm proud of you!!!

My card is plain and simple (and not a very good photograph) - but has been made with a very happy heart! I am so pleased for him.

This used:

Image: Forever Friends "Champagne Celebration"
Sentiment: Do Crafts - (repeatedly stamped)
Sentiment (congratulations): Woodware FRCL009 "Must Have Retro Words"
Crystal Stickles
Watercolour crayons

I haven't had chance to have a good craft session yet unfortunately since I returned from my holidays - and my craft room looks like a bomb has hit it but hopefully over the next few days I will get back in control. LOL!!!

Catch you all again soon.

Love Jules xx
