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

Well the card which wasn't collected from the Festival yesterday photographed quite well so I thought I would share this with you today.

I don't mind that it wasn't collected .. .. .. .. at least the lady didn't come and look at it and say she didn't want it .. .. that would hurt far more LOL!!!

Here is the make:

and the close up

This used:

Image and Sentiment: Butterfly Kisses "A2C1015" Hello Baby!
Backing Papers: Pink Petticoat
Josy Rose: Nail Heads
Charm, ribbon and cord from the stash box

Not a bad photograph for saying it had to be taken very early morning.

Lots of clearing up happening in the house of hearts today. The old housework has taken somewhat of a "back seat" whilst preparing for the Festival so I have been making things clean and sparkly again alongside printing off backing papers and working on little favour boxes for a wedding in a couple of weeks.

I can't believe what a mess I had made of the place LOL!!!

Have a good evening everyone and hopefully I will be calling by your blog soon!!!

Love Jules xx

Hi Jules, its such a shame we have to make a mess I would enjoy my crafting a whole lot more if I had a little fairy to come round after me and clean things up as I am a very messy crafter.
your card is gorgeous, love the spotty paper, right up my street.

lisa said...

What a shame she didn't come back for such a beautiful card, Jules. She doesn't know what she missed.
Don't work too hard, a blogging friend gave me housework advice recently which I shall treasure.

A home should be clean enough to be healthy and dirty enough to be happy!!

I shall pass it on to you with my love

Hugs Lisax
