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

A quick share of a Golden Wedding Anniversary card I have been asked to make.

Quite a simple style but one I like.

The backing paper is super special and has a lovely golden shine to it without being "too much". Hopefully you will be able to see this in the close up photograph below.

Here is the creation:

and the close up

This used:

Backing Paper: Craft Creations
Sentiment: Computer Generated
Cuttlebug: Heart and Embossing folder
Josy Rose: Nail Heads
Martha Stewart Punch: Traditional Scallop
Crystal Stickles
Ribbon and Cord from the stash box

And that is it - a bit earlier today.

Sorry to be rushing but I have a lot to fit in as tonight hubby and I are off out with my Auntie and Uncle to a lovely restaurant at the side of a canal. Because it will be dark it will be all lit up with lights strewn across the waterfront so it should be quite magical.

We have all already made our choice of what we want .. .. .. fish and chips (which are served in newspaper)!!!!

Aren't I a cheap date? Fish and chips in newspaper, a few light bulbs, good company and I'm happy!!! LOL!!!

Have a good evening everyone.

Love Jules xx
