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

Well my creation of the day is a bit different to my normal creations !!

As explained yesterday I am off to a workshop at Sir Stampalot in Peterborough and participants have volunteered to take something for us to nibble on during the course of the day. (Personally I have a feeling we will all be far too engrossed in our crafting to remember to eat LOL!!!).

So here are my contributions towards the day.

Firstly, cheese and mustard scones (heart shaped of course)


Vanilla heart biscuits dipped in chocolate (only two squares popped in my mouth before the melting process started).

I probably ought to explain those bobbly bits. I bought a bar of white crunch chocolate and added a couple of milk chocolate squares and melted it all together - the bobbly bits are the crunchy bits (not badly melted chocolate LOL!!!).

I have made more than five biscuits .. .. they are all sat around the kitchen in little batches.

My kitchen smells lovely and I am just hoping that the chocolate on the biscuits sets before I have to pack them away .. .. .. .. .. and that it doesn't melt again whilst on the way to Peterborough .. .. .. eeekkkk!!!!

I hope my playmates will like what I have made. The scones will probably need a bit of butter - hopefully someone else will be taking some of that as I don't think it will survive being out of the fridge for some 20 hours if I take some.

So no posts from me now until Sunday, when hopefully I will have a few pictures of my special weekend - and no doubt very dirty ink stained hands.

Have a good weekend everyone.

Love Jules xx

Hi Jules,
I really wanted to go tomorrow, but it's my sister's birthday and as she is moving to France (permanently!) in a couple of weeks she is having a bit of a party that I don't want to miss.
I would have loved to try out your heart shaped scones!
Have a great day.

Oh my Jules, playmates will definately like - can teacher have some too please ?

The one we really need to watch out for is Sir Stamp himself, he has a habit of lurking round corners where there is food about.

See you tomorrow.

I can vouch for the fact that Jules's goodies were absolutely delicious, and the cheese scones especially were to die for! It was lovely to meet you, Jules, hope you enjoyed the day as much as I did. Here's to the next time!
