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

Boy it is busy in the House of Hearts craft pod at the mo and I have only just given in for the day  .. . ..  I have been trying to be a good daughter though at the same time though so took some colouring with me and sat and talked with Mum this afternoon whilst colouring away.

Here is one of the image I enjoyed tickling with my ProMarkers .. ..

This used:

Image:  Teddy Bo
Sentiment:  Elusive Images (do I still put that now?)
Backing Paper:  Funky Fairy (sadly no longer trading)
Adirondack Ink Pad
Self Adhesive Gems
Ribbon and Cord from the Stash Box

and that is it for my make. 

Of course tonight Celebrity Big Brother starts.  Now normally this is something I would watch .. . I love watching people's attempts at being nice all the time LOL!!  Bit this time I told Hubby I wasn't watching so don't even put it on !!

What happens?

I come down from the craft pod to find that he has got it on the TV and is recording it in case I want to "rewind"!!!!  There will be trouble if he gets me hooked!!

Not much chance though because at the moment all these people are going in and so far I haven't the foggiest idea who any of these so called "celebrities" are!!!  LOL!!

Catch you again tomorrow .. .. hopefully a little earlier!!

A beautiful card. I just love the image. I gave up watching Big Brother and the celebrity version ages ago. I can't believe they managed to talk anyone into taking part.

Evening Jules . . . I too have only just finished crafting for the evening - V late for me!

Love the Teddy Bea/Bo image. Very nice romantic card.

Personally, I'm disgusted another channel picked up the BB series after Ch4 dropped it.

Hugs, Sandra

Loved all three of your recent makes, Jules. I'm just wizzing through though so not much time for commenting I'm afraid. This Teddy Bo/Bea is a real treat. So simply designed, so softly coloured and so very pretty! Hugs, Lesley
