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 good day .. .. hubby and I really felt like it should be Friday today!!  It seems to have been one very long week .. .. must be something to do with all the coughing, spluttering and ailments that are still going on.

Hubby was really excited the other morning though because he had managed 5 hours without waking up for a coughing session.  A bit like being excited when your baby sleeps through for the first time without needing a feed at 3.00am LOL!!!

Hopefully by the weekend we will be back on track .. .. but at the moment I still remain on Ward 2 (aka the spare bedroom)!!

We are both absolutely shattered and this morning my hubby slept through 10 minutes of his alarm buzzing, then 30 minutes of his radio playing only to be woken by his third alarm that he had set "just in case"!!!  Thank goodness he had.  Neither of us had heard either of the first two alarms.

A quick share tonight and if I can stay awake hopefully a bit of a blog hop

This used:

Image:  Lili of the Valley
Sentiment:  Elzybells
Backing Papers:  Funky Hand CD "Dreams Come True"
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Sizzix Die:  "655088" Buckles
Diamond Stickles

So that is me.  I am now off to prepare to make a chicken curry in the hope that it clears out some of our tubes!!  LOL!!!

Have a lovely evening everyone.

Hi Jules, this is adorable - one of my favourite stamps. I love the papers and the layout. The little heart on the pram is lovely. xx

What a pretty card! Such a sweet image, and the papers complement it perfectly.

Annie said...

oh this is gorgeous Jules. Thank you for the comment on my blog - so sorry yes I had linked the wrong card. I'm having one of those nights - went to Allsorts and linked but then meandered over to Brenda's and somehow came back to Allsorts and managed to link the wrong card.
Think trying to cook tea and blog simultaneously is not a good idea.
