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

Well I was brave and opened the door of the craft pod today .. .. .. climbed over all the things I had stashed in there so they were out of sight over Christmas .. .. .. cleaned down my desk and then created this:

This used:

Image:  Fresh Cut Studios "Floral Rabbit"
Sentiment: Computer Generated using font "Vanilla Shot"
Frame:  DigiTreat "Frame Borders"
My Trusty Sewing Machine

Really enjoyed my first play of 2012.

Did you managed to find the heart?  

Catch you again soon everyone .. .. have a good week.

Tee hee.....when I was looking at the picture of your lovely card I said to myself, "Hmmm....I wonder where the heart is." lol Such a pretty make. Wonderful colours and colouring too.

Haha Jules, I guess you don't like 2021 as you've travelled back to a much nicer time in 2012... I'll be joining you there soon ;)

Anyway I jest, your bunny card is adorable with her rosy cheeks and floral arrangement. She would make a super Easter card too... super cute x

Yes, spotted the heart(s)!! What a lovely image this and the delicate colouring suits it perfectly. The frame could have been designed just for you.

Hi Jules, What a gorgeous card the image is so cute. I too had a break from crafting over Christmas, but I'm now hunting for my Mojo. I have a 21st Birthday Thursday and then next Tuesday Mum is 90 so need to find it quickly.

Happy new Year
Sue xx

Hi Jules,

Happy New Year, 2021!!! It took me an hour to find a heart!!!LOL!!! You are so funny Jules!!

Love the bunny and a very pretty card.

Have you still got weddings to do this year? I have the odd day that I can't be bothered to go into my craft room, which is very unlike me. I have just had a delivery of felting wool, so hope that will get me motivated to make more things.

Now we have lock down until the 15th of February, I will have to get trying to make a few things, to fill all these free days ahead!!

Stay safe,
Love and hugs,

2012? I'm definitely game on going back to 2012! First off Dwyane would still be here with me. Happy New Year Jules, I hope you had a fabulous Christmas, although different one for sure. I love this cute bunny card! It is just adorable and you have colored it up so perfectly. The heart frame is so cute, loving that. Loving the colors of this one as I'm already dreaming of spring. lol Other than the heart border, I have no clue on where the heart is. I'm getting worse at finding them I think. lol the bunny's face could be an upside down heart though with the yellow flower being the point of the heart. Am I making it to hard to find?!! Am I over thinking it?! I don't know!!! lol Hugs, Brenda
