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.

Good Morning

I am bright and early today .. .. and needing to be a busy bee .. .. just like this cute little Penny Black image.

I have made a good start on the day and this is my first make.

and the close up

This used:

Image: Penny Black "2243K" Bee Costume
Backing Papers and Sentiment: Pink Petticoat
Martha Stewart Punches: Daisy and Frond
Woodware Flower Punches
Josy Rose: Nail Heads
Glamour Dust
Crystal Stickles
Cord and brads from the stash box

I don't actually own this lovely image. I pinched a few impressions from my lovely DIL when she visited last weekend .. .. (thanks Cat xx). Yet another stamp that has gone onto my "one day I would like" list. LOL!!!

Wishing you all a lovely Monday.

Love Jules xx

I have a bone to pick with you Jules. This post is timed at 8.13 and you say this is the first make of the day. Do you mean to say you've created a card before I've even had my breakfast!!!!! This is not funny you know. LOL.
I didn't get to my desk until 10.30, after washing up, emptying bins, making beds. Mmmm maybe I have my priorites all wrong.
Sorry I'm rambling now. This is a gorgeous card. I love the bright colours and those flowers are lovely.
Your very own t-shirt is fab too.
Hugs Lisax

What a lovely, bright, fresh card, Jules! Such a cute image. Wish I could be an early riser, but I'm more of an owl, working better later in the evening. I have been known to make a card before breakfast (but the breakfast was rather late!) xx
