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

I hope you  have all had a good day.

Mine has disappeared in the blink of an eye .. .. which isn't a good thing when you have lots of crafty missions to accomplish!  

At least it has rained again all day so no washing .. .. which means no ironing!! Yay!!!  

I am working on lots of things I can't share at the moment .. .. but managed to pull in a little scrapling card this evening for adding to my stock box.  These are great for just popping on a present or sending a quick message to someone and measure a whole 6.5 x 13.5cm. 

This one used:

Image:  Stampendous! Cling Rubber "CRR112" Ranunculus Field
Sentiment:  LOTV "Embossed Labels"  -  one of the new releases that came out today
Heart Punch

and that is it!!

I hope you are all coping OK .. .. .. lock-down is slowly starting to feel like the norm don't you think?  

Has anyone starting snipping away at their hair .. .. .. or is that just me? LOL!!!

A lovely scrapling card Jules - I love the floral stamp.

My OH has cut my hair for me! I've very curly hair which grows out instead of down. Without a hair cut I would look like Leo Sayer by the time I can get to the hairdresser, so I had a glass of wine to steady my nerves and then let my OH snip at the ends. It looks fine - in fact, over the years I've had worse hair cuts at the hairdressers!

Gorgeous little card, love the flowers, colour choice and the style of the sentiment. Have to admit to a little bit of hair snipping so that I could see out but considering a couple of plaits to keep it under control!!

Such a sweet card! I've got this stamp, but have always struggled to use it in a way I'm pleased with. Love how you incorporated the heart, Jules! Stay safe, Jo x

Such a pretty little card Jules. Not started snipping my hair yet, but coming very close to caving in and giving it a little trim as it gets very unruly if left to grow.

Take care and stay safe

A pretty card Jules, a lovely stamp.
I'm only ironing my eldest son's clothes at the moment he is still working as he is a teacher - no one else is going out so why bother!

What a stunning image, love the colours and a great label, not looked at LOTV for ages and should do really as they are not far from me and I should support nearly local buisnesses.
