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

Here at last with my last card in the mini "get well" series.

I saved this image until last as it is my all time favourite image for get well cards.

I just love that cute little ted propped up on his pillow .. .. and I always imagine that he is getting a dose of Calpol (love the smell of that LOL!!).

So I am sorry Di but you didn't guess right this time .. .. no Penny Black image tonight .. .. surprise, surprise !

This used:

Image:  Lili of the Valley
Sentiment:  Pink Petticoat
Backing Papers:  Nitwits
X-Cut Punch:  Flower
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Diamond Stickles
ProMarkers and Chalk

Another wedding order picked up today so that is another off the list :-(  .. .. it always feels sad when I come to the end of a journey with a "happy couple".

There was a framed table plan with this order and when I bought my roll of bubble wrap downstairs ready for wrapping it I thought there was loads on the roll.  But by the time I had finished wrapping there was hardly anything left .. .. .. and I am going to need to wrap another two this week (once I have made them!!)    Eeeekk!  Bad planning on my part there and hubby wasn't impressed I could tell!

So the hunt for another roll of bubble wrap was on the cards.  A quick look on Ebay found a decent priced roll .. but there was 100m on a roll.  That did feel a little excessive.  So whilst we were out picking up ribbons for samples we went to get one from where the original roll came from .. .. only to find that I could have this huge roll for far fewer of my lovely English pounds .. .. and there would be three times as much wrap on it.  How many extra bubbles!!

Once home I ordered the huge roll .. .. now I am wondering whether it will fit through the front door .. .. eeekkk!!

Story to be continued on delivery LOL!!!

Hi Jules
Gorgeous card , I love that image too ( well actually I love all LOTV images). The colours and layout are beautiful.
It must be so rewarding when you complete a wedding order and see the look of delight on the couple's face.
Good luck with the bubble wrap!!

hugs Sue

I love bubble wrap, especially when throwing a party at the Toddler Club, the children have such fun stamping on it and making the bubbles pop! Do I join in? Well, yes, it would be rude not to!

Superb card, Jules, I agree, that's one cute image, sure to cheer up any ill person!

love Mags B x

Di said...

Oh Jules, I didn't realise you had this stamp - it's one of my faves too! Another beautiful card and lovely colours, the ribbon is just fab!

Laughing about the bubble wrap - but I have a solution for you. If it won't go through the front door just open the roll, take one end, feed that into the house and have someone on the other end rolling it up again for you. Simples - what's the problem? :)

Love, Di xx

Hi Jules

You card is lovely. The teddy is so cute! I love Calpol! When my son was little and I had to give him a teaspoon of it I'd have one myself aswell (naughty). Well I'm still here to tell the tale!

You sound rushed off your feet with all of your wedding work.

I use Ebay for all of my packaging supplies. Brilliant value for money and cheaper than the shops!

Have a nice day!
