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.

Twit Twooo .. .. how are you?

I hope you are well and looking forward to the long Bank Holiday weekend!!

The only thing that is better than a Friday night is a Friday night that marks the beginning of a long weekend .. .. .. but mine is even better as it marks the start of my lovely Hubby being on holiday for the whole of next week .. and a little bit besides!! 

Oh I hope he isn't going to hinder production in the House of Hearts!!!  My "do list" still needs lots of attention!!

I am thinking I need to teach him how to use the Cuttlebug!!  He could be lots of help in that department .. .. but I somehow think he just wouldn't be impressed :-(

So, here I am round to my share of the day:

This used:

Image:  Squigglefly "Hooty Who"
Sentiment:  Computer Generated
Backing Papers:  Raspberry Road
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Martha Stewart Punch:  Embossed Zig Zag
We R Memory Keepers:  Baker's Twine "Neutral"
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Button from the Stash Box

So that is me for today.

Just time for a quick bath before my Hubby's lovely fish and chip supper is ready .. .. .. .. .. can you smell it from where you are?!?!?!   Mmmmm...  I am a lucky girlie!! 

Catch you again tomorrow,

Gorgeous Jules - love it as ever. Great papers to go with the so cute image - I had a little trouble finding the heart at first, but that's a lot of the fun!

I had Abi round here yesterday afternoon, complete with Marcel the monkey! After crafting and such I was showing her the blogs I follow. Great fun spotting the heart on yours - and the holly stumped her too :))

Hope those fish and chips went down a treat!

Love, Di xx

Fabulous Jules! Love the owl image and, yet again, you've chosen the perfect paper! Mr Microsoft man was repairing my laptop last night so there was no blogging for me. xx
