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 Tuesday .. .. well what is left of it!!

Where on earth is January disappearing too?  Is it just me or does Christmas feel like a lifetime ago already?

Lots happening here on the wedding and magazine front and no crafty playtime happening .. .. but things will calm down soon I'm sure.

The latest Make Special Cards magazine is on the shelves at the moment so I can at least share some of my favourite makes with you from that .. .. the stamps and papers were gorgeous!

As I am sure you will have guessed by now that I was working with a love, romance and French theme and my fellow designer Hazel France got to work with the cute little hedgehogs..

Catch you again soon hopefully.

What a lovely selection of cards Jules..everyone so different and I love your soft colours...I think this month has flown by
but it’s so lovely to see the daffodils and primroses in bloom in our garden which reminds me Spring is on its way.

A lovely selection of projects and the colours are so pretty too - nice to get away from the Christmas colour schemes at least for a while.

Some really gorgeous makes Jules, love the colour pallet of this collection and some really great images.
As for the time span, my Birthday is the 23rd of January and when I was little it seemed an absolute age from Christmas to my Birthday but these days it doesn't seem two minutes. My Sisters birthday is in August and I always felt that she had two celebration quite a bit apart but mine were over and done with very quickly.
