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 Jules, I love this cheery little duckie. Your combination of papers is SO effective. I had to search for your signature heart, BUT I finally saw the cute little button. I think that is an awesome idea to have your special signature. This card will cheer whomever is going to receive it. Was interested to read you are in the process of beginning a business, and I'll guess it is something with 'The Arts'. Can't wait to see ....thanks for your kind comments over on my blog. Glad you are getting some sunshine. In SC (USA) we are getting some much needed rain, and I hear we are to get a little cool front. Which will be most welcome. Have a lovely weekend, and TFS your lovely card.

Hi Jules. Please don't feel you have to apologise if you don't get around to visiting and commenting as often as you would like - I don't know how you fit it all in - running a house and a business and also making something to share almost every day.I wish I could be as productive as you are. I've been struggling to do something that was in my head all day and it's all ended up in the bin.
Your card is delightful - pretty papers and design - and that duck doesn't look at all out of place sat there on the luggage. Great image.
