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

I have spent the day working on new baby cards today. I love making baby cards .. .. .. probably because I love babies !!!

Pink ones, blue ones and yellow ones. I am trying hard to force myself to make a few peach ones but can't convince myself that anyone would want them .. .. so I haven't made any LOL!!!

Here is one of the yellow ones

and the close up view

This used:

Image: Penny Black "2073J" Baby Hammock
Sentiment: Pink Petticoat
Backing Papers: Pink Petticoat
Martha Stewart Punch: Doily Lane
Nestabilities: Standard Circles Large and Classic Scalloped Circles Large
Crystal Stickles
Buttons and Ribbon from the stash box

Whilst talking of Penny Black and punches - don't forget the challenge over at Penny Black at Allsorts where we would like you to bring your punches out alongside your Penny Black stamps or stickers!! You can find the challenge here if you fancy joining in.

I joined the DT for this challenge blog this month and have been having great fun going round visiting the blogs of the entrants .. .. .. but I am having a slight problem. People are using gorgeous Penny Black stamps that I haven't seen before ... oh dear .. .. more on my "one day I would like" list!!!

Did you notice how polite I was there .. .. shame my Mum doesn't read my blog. She would be so proud. She brought us kids up never to say "I want" .. .. is should always be "I would like".

OK - back to more baby cards.

Catch you again over the weekend. Have a lovely Friday evening.

Love Jules xx
