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

Happy Monday!

I hope you have had a good day.

Throwing it down with rain here for most of the day .. .. and this evening is looks like the end of a lovely sunny summer's day!  I hope we do get some sunny summer days this year!

So some of you may remember that last Monday all I managed to do was to colour an image .. .. well today I can show you what I did with it.  I turned it into a card for my lovely Uncle who had a birthday last week.

This used:

Image:  Penny Black "2083J" Beehave!!
Sentiment:  Computer Generated using font Zipty Do
Backing Papers:  First Edition "Desert Blooms"
Martha Stewart Punch:  Traditional Scallop
X-Cut Corner Rounding Punch
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Ribbon from my crafty stash box

and that is me for today . .. . leaving a note for myself to say .. ..

If you try to be clever and schedule a post .. .. try and remember you need to press the publish button after setting the date and time .. .. otherwise it will just sit in your draft box and go nowhere LOL!!!

Enjoy the rest of your evening.

Hopefully I will find time for a teeny tiny Tuesday card tomorrow.. .. amongst everything else that "must" be done.

Love Jules xx

Great use of the image and some lovely papers to go with it and spotted the heart which I have kept forgetting to do recently.
No rain at all today... a first for a long while.
Grandsons sports day was cancelled due to all the rain over the weekend, loads of it.

Penny Black stamps always make me smile Jules, I just love them.
It's a brilliant card, I bet your Uncle is thrilled with his card.
I'm in the process of collecting fonts, where do you get yours from Jules? X
