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 all had a good day today .. .. mine has been brilliant spent with my lovely Sis (though she did cut a circle into the wrong B Plate when using my Cuttlebug!!  I always keep one just for cutting into that is shaped a bit like a banana and another all flat and clean .. .. now it is flat and clean with one solitary circle cut into it).    Bless her .. .. her face was a picture.  She felt really guilty I could tell so I just told her it will remind me of her each time I use my Cuttlebug .. .. which it will .. . and I will smile and picture her face of guilt!!  LOL!!!  It is a good job I love her and can forgive her.

My how the time flew - then suddenly we realised it was gone 7.00pm!!!  Eeekk!!!!

Sis disappeared home as she was going out for a meal and I disappeared upstairs to make a quick card .. .. .. and it is the total opposite to the one I made yesterday.

Yesterday I felt was all romantic and delicate and today is .. .. well .. .. I will let you decide for yourself .. .. but clearly quick and simple comes into it!!  LOL!!

This used:

Image:  Hero Arts "F5083" Smiling Robot
Sentiment:  Woodware Clear Stamps "FRCL009" Must Have Retro Words
Backing Paper:  DCWV All About Boys Stack
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder:  Diamond Plate
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Cord from the Stash Box

It couldn't be much different to last night's card if it tried could it?

I am going to turn the one I did last night into a Golden Wedding Anniversary card .. .. that definitely got the most suggestions.  Thank you for that!

Sorry to be so late .. .. I promise to be earlier tomorrow with my snippet makes and my playmate role call.  There was definitely lots of company in the playground this week!!  It was lovely!!

See you tomorrow.

Love the little robot! great colours a fun card. I accidentily cut a circle into my C plate because I put the die upside down before putting on the card. I wasn't very happy with myself! I do the same thing with my B plates,one flat, one bent, but have had others use the opposite one a couple of times too.

What a super make for a boy Jules! As always you've used paper that coordinates perfectly with the image and so does the clever embossing. Fabulous! xx

Love that card--it gave me a good laugh! Too cute!! And yes, I too have a B plate shaped like a banana!!! =D

Amanda said...

What a fab bright card Jules. I am the same with my cuttlebug in fact I have never used it to cut only emboss lol

Catherine said...

Great fun card!

Hi Jules, Great card, lots going on but clean and simple too, :0) Time flies when you're having fun, glad you had a lovely day.
It's funny I do exactly the same with my B plates too, how weird is that? My reasoning is that if one gets all the cutting I'll only need to replace one but they come in pairs so it doesn't really make any sense LOL Enjoy the weekend, Gay xxx

Di said...

He's sooooo cute! Laughed about the B plate - make sure you use that one to replace the 'banana' when it just gets too bent to use. I've done exactly the same myself so your sis isn't alone :) Di xx

Vicky Hayes said...

Yes, a slightly different mood to this one and not raging suitable for a golden wedding anniversary! Love it Jules with its bright colours and happy feel! Vx

Kylie said...

I love the colours in this card Jules! My favourite cards to make are male themed so I'm going to have to get some of that backing paper hehe!

Fabulous card! :o)

Love your colourful 'bot with the fab paper and footplate embossing! Hugs, Lesley

Lynne K said...

Hi Jules. What a fab fun card! My grandsons would love it. I think most of us have done that with the B plates. It's when you cut into the C plate by mistake that you feel really bad!

Hugs, Lynne xx
