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 Saturday!

I hope you have had a good week and have a lovely weekend planned.  Mine needs to be a continual craft fest .. .. as I want to get lots crossed of that "must do" list.  To help with the process Mr Heart has kindly offered to take me out for something to eat tomorrow  .. .. which will save on all that cooking and clearing up!!  So win win .. .. lots of crafty time and no Sunday lunch to prepare!!  Woo hoo!!

Today I have a card to share for DigiStamp Boutique

This used:

Image:  DigiStamp Boutique  .. ..   from the "Silhouette Flower Set"
Sentiment:  DigiStamp Boutique .. .. from the "Swirly Words" sentiment collection
Backing Papers:  Craft Sensations "Chalkboard Love"
X-Cut Punches: "Corner Rounder" and "Flower Doily" Border Punch
X-Cut Embossing Folder:   "Small Polka Hearts"
My Trusty Sewing Machine

I am also entering my card into the challenge over at "Moving Along With The Times" where the challenge is to use only black and white and one other colour.  Really enjoyed this challenge.

Plus I am also popping along to join in "Crafty Catz Challenge" where the theme is "anything goes" but with the added option of using black and white.

Enjoy your weekend everyone

Time for me to get some more crafty missions complete.  It's a tough job but someone has to do it  LOL!!!

Love this beautiful card Jules, the colors are so pretty. Love the patterns on the paper as well as the image. The border punch/die is so pretty on the pink corner, love that! Glad DH is taking you out to eat so you don't have cooking and clean up to do before getting crafty. I have a new email Jules and it is on my blog post. If you could please send me your email again, I can add it to my new contacts list. Thanks my friend! Hugs Brenda

I love your pop of pink in the corner with that punch - great way to add more texture and make it work with the black/white/pink theme. Thanks so much for joining us at MAWTT this week! x Jessie

I only received your blog message today (Sunday), so here a late answer. Your card is beautiful, love the colour combination, and the little hearts in the corner ! I do hope that you enjoyed your lunch, so kind of Mr. Heart, I must give a "hint" like that, here at my home.... :o) It's so nice if you don't have to cook for once. Enjoy the rest of Sunday, and hopefully you get all your work done ! Enny
