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 I was a good girl and tidied up my craft pod this morning .. .. it feels so much better in there now with everything back in its rightful place.

I can concentrate and think so much better when everywhere is tidy.  Is that just me or has it been scientifically proven to be the case for everyone?

So round to my share of the day.

I have been itching to use this sheet of backing paper for ages .. .. but just didn't know what image to put it with .. .. then today whilst on my tidy up campaign I find just the right one ....

My make used:

Image and Sentiment:  Woodware Clear Stamps "FRCL124" Groovy Cats
Backing Paper:  Raspberry Road
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads

and that is it. 

Quick and simple tonight!!

I'll catch you again tomorrow with my Penny Black GDT creation.

Catherine said...

Fab card, such fun backing paper as well! Love it!

Debs said...

Oh Jules this is just 'purrfect'
Fab iamge and fabbier DP's
I too love to have everything tidy and in it's place and sometimes think spend more time doing that than crafting!!! But it does have advantages when you 'find' something you had forgotten about :-)
have a wonderful weekend.

Purrfect Jules!! Love this fun card. I made nothing at all today. When my job went wrong my mojo disappeared in a panic, lol!! It was so lovely outside that I went out to weed the garden and have a tidy up. Felt much better when I came in. xx

That is just too cute! Love the paper--and the cat is perfect for it!! And yes, Jules, I'm like you. Don't know if it's been scientifically proven or not, but I work much better in an organized space. :-)

Sally said...

Hi Jules, a sweet little card with such a cute image. I love cats & this one is pretty groovy isn't he. I always feel better when everything is in order but then again I'm a pretty organised person overall.

Vicky Hayes said...

Well done for tidying up Jules - and I know it's true that I get a lot more done in a tidy room! This background looks fabulous with that cute looking cat (I say cute but this is the expression our cat has when she's just caught a bird...) Vx

Jenny said...

Sandy said...

The paper and stamp are a perfect go-together Jules! I love cats and have a few stamps....also have some 'fish' paper I got for my son, who loves fishing. Now I'll have to put the two together:) Thanks for the idea:)

Sarn said...

Great card Jules! Cute cat.

I'm with you . . . I hate my craft room to be untidy . . . simply cannot function properly in mess.

Hugs, Sandra xxx

Irene said...

Elizabeth said...

Hah, it pays to be tidy - I'm always saying it does but you've just proved it. If you hadn't tidied up you wouldn't have found that fab stamp and made that terrific card using that brilliant paper. I feel justified in being such a neatnik. Elizabeth x
