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

I hope you have all had a good day.

Most of mine has been spent working on a new table plan for taking to the Wedding Fayre on Sunday.  It is nearly finished now bar the sticking down of everything .. .. but I won't do that until we have some daylight tomorrow .. .. and when I am super wide awake!!  LOL!!

So with my table plan sitting waiting to be finished I decided to play with my snippets this evening.  Quite  few have made an appearance on this little make .. not sure what all the papers are as some have been kicking around for a while now .. .. but if anyone is particularly interested in any of them then please shout up and I will look into what they are and where they came from.

Here is my make

If I can get a good picture I will give you a peep at my new table plan tomorrow.  I don't find them the easiest things to take a picture of.

Hubby is out at a mid week football match so I am able to play in my craft pod all evening!! Woo hoo!!

I have the radio on in the background and unfortunately at the moment his team are losing :-(  Never mind there is time for them to make amends.  They haven't had their half time "telling off" yet!! LOL!!

Right .. .. off to make something else!

This is gorgeous, maybe it will make me a bit more confident to try something without an image, just with a sentiment!

Hi Jules - gorgeous card love the holly paper, is that vellum laid over the left side? I did that on a card a couple of weeks back and think it looks great. My hubby out at match too but l am not checking results and off to bed soon as my 2 little grandchildren are fast asleep upstairs while l have an hour to myself. Take care and hope the plan looks perfect tomorrow x Susan x

Ooooh Jules - just spotted this on my dashboard and I love it to bits! What a great idea to layer vellum over that beautiful paper! Hope hubby isn't too grumpy when he gets home! Vx

I so love those holly leaves!! The sentiment is really cute and kind of formal at the same time! And all that sewing....sheesh...WELL DONE!! =D

This is gorgoues Jules. I think I might have to case it (if that's ok).
I think the papers might be from the Toby Tumble Christmas set from Cuddly Buddly.

Irene said...

Beautiful Snippet make Jules. I love the vellum touch.


Marie-Louise said...

Marvellous card. Love the simplicity. Wish I could get my snippets to match up - they always seem to be a jumble of mismatched colours.

Gorgeous card - the papers are lovely and love those fluffy little holly berries. So glad my DH isn't into football ... it's just too fraught ... did his team win after the half-time telling off, I wonder? Elizabeth x

Stella said...

If you want to get rid of your snippets you can send me an envelope of these :) (no just kidding). The result is gorgeous Jules! You chose the right papers and the combo turned out great. Love it!
