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 Thursday .. .. .. it is Thursday isn't it ?!?!? 

It has been one of those weeks where I have been trying to cram far too much in .. .. .. and I have had to keep stopping to work out exactly what day it is.  

Weddings have once again all changed.  My happy couples who had already had to cull their attendance numbers down to 30 are now having to reduce them yet again to 15.  That can't be easy!  

So many changes that won't be popular, but we all just have to do what we can to stay safe don't we.  

I actually had time for a quick play this evening and I created this fun card:

This used:

Image:  Bugaboo Stamps "Pup Balloons"
Sentiment:  Digistamp Boutique (sadly no longer trading)
Backing Papers:  Craft Sensations "Basics"
Nail Heads
My Trusty Sewing Machine

and that is me for today.

You are right this is a fun card and anything which makes us smile is what we need right now. Things are starting to look dodgy again but as you say we must all play our parts to keep everyone safe. Have a good weekend

Wow, this card is so amazing! Love the stamp and your background is brilliant!! Love, love, love <3
It sure can't be easy to reduce already invited guests, but YES we HAVE to put safetyness in the front seat.
Wish you a safety and joyful weekend, Jules! xoxo

A great fun card Jules. Nice to have a bit of play time.
I too have a problem with days. An age thing and also because I don't have things to do on certain days.
Never mind. Enjoy the freedom from work!!

Love and hugs,
Carol xxxx
