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.

Hi Everyone

I hope you have had a lovely Sunday.

It has been gorgeous here today .. .. albeit a little on the breezy side.

I have been busy sorting out my stock ready for the Craft Festival at the weekend. There is still a lot I want to do in readiness. One minute I feel I am ready and then I put myself under added pressure by wanting to do something else as well .. .. .. but I have never been one to give myself an easy life or be satisfied with what I have done LOL!!!

Here is a quick make which sadly didn't have a picture to colour. Just a bit of promarker ink to the letters and that was it .. .. .. though there is perhaps a little bit too much pink and sparkle .. .. but someone who loves pink will think it's great.

and the close up

This used:

Image: Inkadinkado "97145-P"
Backing Papers: DCWV "Black and White Prints"
Go Create: Cutting Frame "151005"
ProMarker (just the one LOL!)
Glamour Dust
Sticky back gems
Ribbon from the stash box
It is hard to capture all the sparkle on this creation. There is glamour dust all around the edge of the embossed edge of the white centre sentiment and on the ribbons of the sentiment .. .. but you just can't see it no matter what I do with it!! Shame :-(

So now to my special buy of the weekend .. .. I am not a "clothes" person at all and am struggling to think of what the last item of clothing was that I bought .. .. but nothing I own has given me as much pleasure and excitement as a T shirt I bought yesterday .. ..

how about this ...........

isn't it fantastic!!

A man in our local shopping centre printed it for me yesterday. I am over the moon with it and am going to wear it for the Festival next weekend. My very own special T shirt and no-one else in the whole world has one the same. Tee hee!!!

It doesn't take much to keep me happy does it!!

Enjoy what remains of Sunday.

Love Jules xx
