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'm not getting much better am I?

Late again!!!  But I have at least finished the card I half started yesterday.

I have worked on that many different projects today that it looks like a whirlwind has hit my craft pod .. .. I think tomorrow starts with a good old clear up!!!

So I will be super quick...

Here is my make

This used:

Sentiment:  Computer generated
Go Kreate Die:  Frilly Squares #3
Scor-pal embossing board
Glamour Dust
Ribbon, pearls and charm from the stash box

I did do a sideways view for you to show the fine line of glamour dust I have added around the sentiment but the glare of the mirror card was just too much for the camera to handle LOL!!!

To be fair though I don't think there was much to be gained from it!!

I hope you have all had a good day .. .. .. there was actually a bit of sunshine to be had late afternoon in my neck of the woods.

I will catch you again tomorrow .. .. who knows what time?!?!?!?!?

Fabulous Jules. I think I need a scor- pal, your embossed background is fantastic. Love the sentiment die too.

I need to have a clear up too, still a mess from my crafting spree at the wkd! I've had a busy week and not ventured into the craftroom since!

Very sophisticated Jules - I love the little heart charm! Do you remember the fairy tale about the shoemaker and the elves? You never know your luck - you might come in tomorrow and find it's all been tidied away! No I know - there's no chance at all! Vx

Hello Jules

Your card is just so elegant and beautiful. I love the rich red Ruby against the white background - and your embossing and little charm - perfect.

Stunningly gorgeous.
