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 your weekend has got off to a good start .. .. .. .. I am sure the England football result will certainly have helped.

We have had thunderstorms and rainstorms here this evening so I felt sorry for anyone who was hosting a mini BBQ / football viewing with friends.

My share today is a wedding anniversary card:

Mmmmm... .. .. not sure how many people would celebrate their anniversary in a bath .. .. .. but it sounds pretty good to me LOL!!

This used:

Image:  LOTV "Bubble Bath"
Bubble Frame:  Digi Treats "Doodles Set 1"  So many frames available here and I love them all!!  xx
Sentiment:  Computer Generated using font "Ink Free"
Backing Papers:  From snippet mountain, but originally from The Works
My Trusty Sewing Machine

I hope the rest of your weekend goes well .. .. .. the garden definitely got a good rainwater watering today .. .. but tomorrow I would like to see some nice washing drying weather pretty please.

Apologies for the continued lack of posts and blog comments. This last week has been gobbled up by gardening duties, wall painting and most importantly .. .. keeping Mum happy and comfortable.  My blog will always be here but my Mum won't, and I need to make the most of being with her whilst I can.

But hopefully this coming week will see my blog being a little more active as all my orders are currently up to date.  Yay!!!!

Oh, what a lovely card, such a cute image ! Congratulations with England, Belgium is out of the running sadly. I've been busy in the garden and also renovating/clearing here and there, so less time for blog-visits etc...
So good that you still have your mother, take good care of her, she's the most important ! Hugs, Enny

Fabulous card Jules. I really like the border around your image, it really set it off and looks hand drawn! So important to spend time with those we love (Covid allowing). Hugs xx

Well I do Jules and it's not me and Alistair, I think it's marvellous that this couple are still able to get in the bath, I certainly couldn't lol, takes the romance out of the whole occasion.
Anyway, your card is gorgeous, I love the topper and your doodled frame. We've just had a huge downpour with thunder and lightening, managed to get my bedding in before the wet stuff started, Kate x

Sarah said...

Love this Jules!! What a sweet image and the border is so unusual. I expect rabbits only bathe annually so what better time than on their anniversary!! xx

Hazel (Didos) said...

Ahhh what a sweet card. I have to make my folks one for the end of the month!! 52 years!!!! My time is vanishing in the garden just now too. Fed up painting out there!!! Hope you are doing ok, Hazel xx

Hi Jules,

A gorgeous card and a sweet image. Love the frame too.

Glad to hear you are getting on top of things now. Like you I have been working in the garden a lot. I was out there again this morning and just half way through a job and it we had a hard down poor. So I will have to finish it tomorrow. I have to do it all myself.

You have to put your Mum first, as we don't know how long any of us will be here.

On that sad note, hope you have a peaceful few days.
Love and hugs,
Carol xxxx

What a cute anniversary card Jules! This image is just too cute. Maybe they are celebrating in a hot tub?! lol I love how cute this image is and I love the little "doodle" frame going around it. Pretty dang cute! Hope you got your sunshine to dry the wash, we had sun and rain over the weekend. Now going back into a heat wave with temps expected to be 100 degrees tomorrow. You are right, your blog will always be here, but your mum won't, glad you are taking the time with her. Hugs, Brenda
