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.

HAPPY 2018

Hi Everyone

I hope you have all had a wonderful Christmas.

Did Santa bring you any crafty goodies?

He very kindly left a pack of duster brushes under my tree and I am looking forward to having a play with those at the earliest opportunity.

No crafty makes to post from me but I have been playing with my sketches in the background today whilst folks have been watching a film (sitting through a film isn't something I am very good at .. .. mainly because I end up nodding off and waking myself up snoring and embarrassing myself LOL!!) so instead of that I have added another four sketches to my little sketch library which you will find here or on the tab at the top of my blog.  Please feel free to use any of them if they tickle your fancy!

New year celebrations for us this evening and then tomorrow we have to part company again for a short while .. .. and no doubt attempt to shake off some of those extra pounds we will have gained!

Certainly posts to my blog haven't been so prolific this year.  Weddings seem to have taken over my life quite a bit.  But I still love playing with my crafty stash when I get chance and these have been some of my favourite makes of this year.

I wonder what 2018 is going to bring?  

Does anyone else look at those empty pages in a sparkly new diary and wonder what each day could potentially hold?  Hopefully they will all be good days for us all!

There are certainly lots of new year resolutions on my list .. .. but I am not going to share all of those .. .. you wouldn't believe that one person can be so imperfect that they need to make so many anyway!!

Wishing everyone all the very best for 2018.

Hi Jules,
Happy New Year ! Lets hope it's a happy, healthy and of course crafty one for us all :) All of your makes are stunning as always, I hope you continue to be able to share them here when your wedding work allows.
I haven't made resolutions either as I usually break all of them by the 2nd Jan lol so this year I have made a 'wish list' of things I hope to achieve in the hope of ticking at least some of them off !
Hugs Kaz xxx

Lovely to see a review showing some of your favourites from the last year. Wishing you all the best for 2018 and looking forward to seeing more inspiration from you. Thanks for sharing the sketches and layouts - so handy when ideas are in short supply and mojo disappears!!

I had to laugh when I saw your post Jules as I know just what you mean about nodding off in front of the tv and then waking yourself up!!. A beautiful collection of cards that you've picked as your favourites. Hope you have a great new year and all the best for 2018.
