My photo
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

Tee hee!!!  Well after shocking everyone with my bright flower last night .. ... I am being gentler on your eyes today .. .. aren't I kind?  LOL!!!

A quick share tonight.

Who would have thought my favourite make of the wouldn't include an image!!

I just love the colours of the backing papers and think this one is going to get used lots and lots.

This used:

Sentiment:  Elzybells (sadly no longer trading)
Backing Papers: Raspberry Road
Martha Sewart Punches:  Valentine Lace and Doily Lace
Nestabilities:  Lacey Squares
Diamond Stickles
Ribbon, roses and pearls from the Stash Box

Edited -- -- I have had a few people ask which Raspberry Road paper collection the papers came from.  The set is called "Beach Bliss" and you can find it in the Dollar Store.  Bargain or what?

So a much more delicate look tonight.

Mega excitement in the House of Hearts today .. .. our tomatoes are starting to ripen woo hoo!!!  Can't wait until they are ready to sample!!

Have a lovely rest of the day everyone.

I'll catch you all again tomorrow.

Love Jules xx

Hi Jules, no wonder you like this card. It is indeed very pretty xx

Sally said...

Hi Jules, well these are really lovely papers & I'm not surprised that you haven't used an image as they work pretty well without one. Love the colours & the centre roses. You just can't beat home grown toms, the flavour is definitely better than shop bought.

Send some tomatoes this way! I've got a few blossoms, but no maters yet. :-(

The colour scheme is lovely and you've certainly got the hearts angle covered. Can't beat the taste of freshly picked tomatoes ... save some for me.
