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

Sorry, I am a little late tonight.

We have been round to see some friends who have a young son with a birthday tomorrow .. .. so a card and present needed to be delivered to him ready for the morning. 

Such a shame he is going to have to open his presents and then be taken off to school  :-(  I think it should be a rule that you shouldn't have to go to school or to work if it is your birthday (I wonder if I wrote to the Prime Minister if he would agree?   I somehow think not!!  LOL!!!).

Anyway, we are back home now and time for a quick share

This used:

Image:  Sugar Nellie "Daisy"
Sentiment:  Pink Petticoat
Backing Paper:  Digichick Boutique "Joyful Heart Designs"
X-Cut Punch:  Small Flower
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Pearls and Ribbon from The Stash Box

and that is it!!!

My sewing machine is still out at the moment so I decided I needed to make a bit more use of it!

Thank you for all your lovely comments on the flower I showed last night.  So pleased you liked it!!

Have a good evening everyone.  FRIDAY TOMORROW!!!   YAY!!!!

Beautiful card Jules, the stitching looks fab and I think Daisy is still one of my very favourite stamps.
I always made it a rule not to work on my Birthday!

A pretty card. I love the colours and the image is so sweet. I really should buy it just for the name as Daisy would love an image named after her!

This is gorgeous, Jules! I am not a big fan of cute but I do love this stamp. A day off for birthdays?! We have just been told that we are not allowed snow days any more and will have to make up the time elsewhere if we do close the school!

Oh what an adorable image and those papers match perfectly - a very cheery and happy card :o)

Enjoy your week end. I'm away on hols (again) for a week, so will join in with my Snippets on my return. I love using them !!!!!


Tara Cardwell said...

This is so pretty - love the backing papers.

I never went to school on my birthday after the age of 8 when I was given the bumps and hurt my back on the concrete playground, so I was allowed to stay home on my birthday from then on. I've carried the tradition on into work and have never worked on my birthday yet - if you can't have a holiday on your birthday then its not special :-)

This is gorgeous Jules, must dig my Daisy stamp out, she is still one of my favs. Sue x

lisa said...

Birthdays should definitely be a holiday. In our family DD was born on May day so she is on holiday regularly for hers and Hubby's falls in Spring Bank week so he is off for his. Mine is the end of January and not a holiday in sight!!
Get the violins out!!!!!!
Your card is so pretty. I love that little girl, she looks totally lost in thought.
Hope you have a great weekend.
Hugs Lisax

Lynne said...

So very beautiful Jules, that is one of my most favourite SN images, in fact I was looking at the stamp today wondering if I should use it or not, I chose Tilda in the end, lol. The colouring is superb so is the colour, I love it.
