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 your day has been good.

Mine has gone really well, and another few days like today and I will be a very happy bunny!!  Though I do have to admit to being tortured.

What by?

Well .. .. I wouldn't say that I am a huge chocolate fan .. .. but hubby was been really naughty and bought me a huge bar of Turkish Delight Chocolate.  Mmmm...

So far I have managed to leave it in the fridge unopened "all week".  But every time I go into the fridge it stares at me and I am sure I can hear it whispering "eat me, eat me" LOL!!!

Anyway, I think this bar of chocolate must have been on my mind when I started creating tonight's share .. .. and then I just carried on with the theme .. .. ..

This used:

Image and Sentiment:  Pink Petticoat
Backing papers:  Nitwits
Nellie Snellen Punch:  Frond
Woodware Punches for the Flower
Nestabilities:  Classic Circles and Scalloped Circles
My Trust Sewing Machine
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Glossy Accents (yes I risked a bit tonight)
Diamond Stickles
Brad, gem and ribbon from the stash box

No struggling to find the heart tonight folks!!!

Edited to say that I am also going to enter this card into the Sweet Stampin' Challenge where this week they would like to see some stitching on your project.  I think there is the odd stitch or two here LOL!!!

So that is me for today. Have a lovely rest of Wednesday and did you notice I haven't mentioned the weather once (well not until now!!)?  I think I am going to ban that subject on my blog for a while .. .. it just isn't worth mentioning LOL!!

This is gorgeous, Jules and definitely making me hungry. I certainly wouldn't have your willpower if there was a bar of Turkish Delight chocolate in my fridge! Hugs, Tracey xx PS Your card would fit our challenge theme of Stitching over at Sweet Stampin' this week if you fancied joining in! xx

Cynthia said...

Jules, you are a very strong woman. I would never, ever be able to leave chocolate in the fridge for a WEEK. Maybe an hour! ;-) LOL! Love the card--that image and that sweet ribbon are just precious!!

amanda stokes said...

Hi Jules,
Gorgeous card,fab image and paper's
LOL about the chocolate you way more restraint than me!!! :) x

lisa said...

You are being very strong willed, Jules. I love turkish delight choccy too and I think it's definitely been calling to you by the look of your gorgeous card. I love the look of those cakes!!
No, I think it's best if we don't mention the weather, it's bad enough that I'm back in June!!!
Hugs Lisax

Sandy said...

Hearts, LOL. what hearts?
Love this one Jules. cute image and gorgeous papers. Love the stitching too. Turkish delight isn't one of my favourites, but chocolate does have a particular way of tempting one.

Annmaree of Oz said...

you have better self control than I Jules... that chocolate would be long gone in our fridge! lol!!!!

Love this Turkish delight inspired creations, the lovely dusky pink and the chocolate3 brown rocks!

Beryl said...

Now my way of thinking is that as long as there's some chocolate or the like in the house there'll always be the temptation. Best eat it and get it out of the way and think aboutt being good after.Eat it, enjoy it and be good the next day.
Love the card although after reading your post and seeing the card I'm really fancying something nice now.Nothing in the house (all gone) so I can be virtuous.

Tara Cardwell said...

well your card is making me hungry but the turkish delight would be no torture for me at all - it's the one type of chocolate I hate - they're always the ones left in the box when we get them!
