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

Hope you have all had a good day .. .. and if not that tomorrow is much, much better for you!!!

I have been cooking on gas today and am well pleased with my achievements of the day (not something you will hear said very often in the House of Hearts as I am a tough taskmaster and give myself ridiculous goals each day .. .. written down too so I don't forget any LOL!!).

Anyway, on to today's share .. .. which is card three in my series of baby cards :

This used:

Image and Sentiment:  Butterfly Kisses Around-2-It Stamps "A2C1015" Hello Baby!
Backing Papers:  Polka Dot Cardstock from local craft store (not named)
Nestabilities:  Classic Circle and Scalloped Circle
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
My Trust Sewing Machine
Lace from the lovely lady at our local market
There is also a touch of Glamour Dust on the word "Welcome" but I don't think you can tell on the photographs.

and that is card no. 3 .. .. I hope you likey, likey.

Just a funny share before I leave you.

Hubby and I were having a little sit down ahead of bedtime last night and was catching up on a little bit of Coronation Street that we had recorded.  One of the scenes was in the newspaper cabin and there was a lovely shot of the card display .. .. and if you are anything like me you are always drawn to them and scan your eyes over everything on show.

Well what did I see?


I even had to get hubby to rewind a little to check I was reading it right .. .. and yes I was!

Now the programme we were watching wasn't ages old .. .. possibly a week .. .. so this means it is official .. .. Christmas is on its way .. .. get those Christmas cards made LOL!!!

As for my post box of yesterday .. .. sorry I can't share a picture of that one as it is a special one for an order.  But I have enjoyed making it so much that I am going to make another to take to the next wedding fayre I am doing in October.  So I will post that one for you to see when I have made it.

Have a lovely evening everyone and I'll catch you with card number 4 tomorrow.

Hi Jules I love lemon and I love polka dots and this card is lovely! OMW! Christmas is getting earlier and earlier! I love Christmas but not in June! I was in Asda today and I was thinking this and that would be nice little stocking fillers! I had to stop myself!

Hi Jules, loving your baby cards. Today's colour combination is really fresh and pretty. Loved the sentiment on yesterday's all pink creation. Looking forward to seeing that postbox one day. Loved the Coronation Street story, Alan watches every episode and I bet he didn't spot that card :) Off to make a Christmas card now :)) Hugs, Elizabeth x

Marie-Louise said...

Lovely card Jules. Love the colour scheme.

Mrs.B said...

Hi Jules, gorgeous Baby cards, love the images.

Wow Jules - you've been very busy with your Baby cards and they are all gorgeous. The colours on this one are ideal for a card made in advance of the big event, as they are suitable for a boy or girl.

I always watch Corrie - have been a fan since the first episode (yes I am that old, and the rest)!! However, I didn't spot the Xmas card in the Cabin - what a scary thought, and we haven't had Summer yet!
Hugs, Sylvia x

Anne said...

Oh Jules, your design is just fabulous. I sooooo love it. Have to report that I've all my Christmas cards made for myself and am onto making some for my Aunt now ... better watch out or my halo might choke me! Hugs x

Sally said...

Another smasher Jules. Lovely colours, cutsie image & pretty lace. One question though, how do you get your machine stitching so perfect particularly on the circle? Do tell. Funny story about the crimbo card, trust you to notice that. lol.
