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

Another beautiful, bright and sunny day .. .. .. so what do I make? A non-summery card LOL!!!

I just couldn't wait to play with my PaperArtsy stamps again so once I had finished my DT work for the day I decided I deserved a treat .. .. and here is the result.

This used:

Images: PaperArtsy "HP1004EZ"
Sentiment: Woodware "FRCL128" Circular Greetings
Backing Paper: Memory Store
Sizzix Die "Bookplates #2"
Diamond Stickles
Brads, lace and button from the stash box

So this is me for today .. .. I hope you all have a lovely evening. It has certainly been very warm in my neck of the woods .. .. hotter than yesterday!! I wonder how long this beautiful weather is going to last?

Thank you for calling by.

Love Jules xx

Wouldn't it be nice for the sunshine to last for the rest of the Summer, although we can't complain so far, it's not been a bad start has it. It's been gorgeous here with a wonderful breeze. A perfect day for being outside. I've had a crafty shopping day with a blogging friend so perfect all round.
Your card, as always, is beautiful, Jules. I can see why you love these stamps so much. The 3d butterfly is a lovely touch and keeping the images all black is a classy touch. You are very clever my friend.
Hugs Lisax
