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 enjoyed your weekend .. .. .. certainly the gardens in our neck of the woods have been doing a happy dance today.  They have had lots and lots of rain!!

My crafty playtime today is for entering into the All Dressed Up Challenge .. .. where the theme is always "anything goes" with the only rule being that you use an All Dressed Up Image on your entry.  Not a problem if you don't have any to use though as there are some lovely free ones available to download. 

This used:

Image:  All Dressed Up Stamps "Woodland Bird"
Sentiment:  Digistamp Boutique (sadly no longer trading)
Backing Papers:  Grace Taylor "Parisian Chic"
My Trusty Sewing Machine

and that is me for today.

I will hopefully catch you all again soon.

OMGoodness Jules, this is such a cute card! I am so loving the big polka dot paper for the card base, the image you used is just adorable. The bird on the mushroom is looking so proud that he/she got that berry branch. lol Of course you have colored it up to perfect! Love that purple ribbon too, the touches of purple are so striking on this card! Hugs, Brenda

What a lovely card Jules, gorgeous image, and beautiful colouring ! I've been busy, cleaning the veranda today, as we had a heavy storm yesterday evening, and the rain simply washed in... Lots of damage in our area. It's a very weird summer this year. Hugs, Enny
