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 was a little bit naughty yesterday and posted yesterday's creation without you being able to see a heart .. .. ..  with the intention of sending the first person to notice it was missing a little prize (though part of me wondered whether anyone would actually notice).  If anyone managed to find one then you did very well indeed LOL!!!

The idea of offering a prize was as thank you to everyone who has taken the trouble to visit and comment on my blog when I put blogland "out of bounds" whilst preparing for the craft fair of the century (not).

Originally I was going to do a random org. thingy on all of the people who commented over the various days but it just got too complicated for my tiny little brain and was taking far too long .. .. I have cards to make!!!!

So thank you to everyone who visited - I did appreciate it.  Keep those eyes peeled - I might do this again as I quite enjoyed being naughty!!!

Anyway .. .. ..

Here is my card as it should have been shown yesterday with the heart on the bottom left of the image panel:

and here is the prize that one eagle eyed person has won  -  it includes some of my favourite things .. .. ribbons, charms and buttons.

This goes to Lesley at Crafty Love n Hugs who commented at 23.45 last night to say:

Okay then, Love the card but ............. where is the heart?!?! Do I need glasses? I bet it's staring me in the face, Lol!

I do love the Henry mouse images Jules. He's just so cute. I don't buy many 'cute' stamps but there was one last year where Henry was holding a big bauble and it sold out everywhere I looked. I was really miffed I couldn't get it, Lol! Those backing papers are lovely too, such a gorgeous colour.

So I know that at least one person does actually look for my hearts!!  LOL!!!  (Thank you Lesley xx)  I hope you will like your little prize and will find a use for it all.

I was hoping to have got around to visiting everyone last night in my blogland catch up but sadly I made it about a quarter of the way round where I wanted to go.  How much did you all do during my time away?  Blogland must have gone hyper-active.  It was lovely reading everyone's news.  Some of you have been doing some amazing things, some had good news to share and sadly some of you have been a bit "under the weather" - I hope you poorly blog mates are feeling a bit better today.

I will be back later with another creation and will carry on my blogland catch up this evening.

Have a lovely day everyone.  I have sunshine here!

Hi Jules, very sneaky lol! I always look for the heart as I am impressed how you always manage to incorporate one and it looks right at home! Sorry haven't been by in a while, comp probs, family life etc. So sorry your craft day didn't go as well as expected, but on the bright side, it was lovely you got to meet crafting buddies. Beautiful Christmas card, gorgeous snowflake is it layered ribbon? Off to check out Bee crafty's blog, take careX:)

Oooh, I'm so excited now Jules. It was meant to be because I started to leave a comment and then suddenly thought 'Oh I didn't look for the heart!'. Of course, when I couldn't find it I looked again on the zoomed image and still no joy and that was it, I was obsessed with finding it, Lol!

How lovely of you to do a little surprise prize because if you had done a 'blog candy' I wouldn't have entered, Haha! It's just a personal thing of mine and now I'm so looking forward to postie bringing me those lovely goodies.

I am sharing the same sunshine as you today. Enjoy it my friend, even if it's from the window.
