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

Well after being nice and early last night I am back to my bad ways of being a bit late again!!!

Must give myself a bit of a talking to when I have time LOL!!!

My "do list" was pretty big as I started the day .. .. and I was cracking through it quite well until the postman arrived with a package from Anice at Funky Hand!!  Only a new CD to play with ahead of it going on sale!!

So that took up a good chunk of my time looking through all the gorgeous papers and images!!  I can't wait to share some of the yummy things on it!!

Eventually I managed to switch the computer off and get back to my list.  A few things got crossed of .. but as quick as I cross them off I add to it again!!  Oh I love being busy!!

Anyway, here is my share of the day:

This used:

Sentiment:  Studio G "On Yur Wedding Day"
Backing Papers:  GCD Studios "Ella Blue"  (not that there is any of the blue showing)
Martha Stewart Punch:  Traditional Scallop
Silver Embossing Powder
Diamond Stickles
Ribbon, pearls, flower and charm from the stash box

I was also going to show you my lovely nestie storage now it is in-situ but I forgot to take a picture!!  Doh!!!  Will put it on my list to do tomorrow!!  That's another thing added  LOL!! 

If you can't find the heart just give me a shout and I'll give you a few clues!! 

Enjoy what is left of the evening everyone and I'll see you tomorrow.

Hi Jules,
Such a beautiful and elegant make tonight! I love those papers but can't seem to find them for sale anywhere now. The heart charm, ribbon and rose look so lovely.

I finally got my CD to load about half an hour ago!! Talk about stress!!! In all the panic and mayhem trying to get it sorted I only managed to make one card today. Never mind.

Hi Jules, great wedding card & I love the heart charm, it's just beautiful. The ribbon & pearl bows are perfect. All in all smashing. I see you are a one for "to do lists", me too but they never seem to get any shorter, no matter how many you tick off, do they? lol.

Di said...

Oh Jules - this really is gorgeous! Ahem, and I found the heart right away so no squeaks of 'where is it?' from me today! 'To do' lists are great - use them all the time but they never seem to get any shorter do they? Busy hands are happy hands though :)) Love, Di xx
