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 week has been going well ... ... and you have seen some summer sunshine!

Lots of re-organising and gardening has been happening here, which hasn't resulted in anything to share on my blog, but I did find a little bit of time today to make this:

This used:

Image:  GCR Designs: Wine Definition
Sentiment:  Computer Generated
Backing Paper:  JAnnB Designs Cork Papers
My Trusty Sewing Machine

and that is all! 

So now you know the definition of wine please don't get all your nutritional "5 a day" from a wine bottle .. .. .. as nice as that might sound you will more than likely end up with a BIG headache!  LOL!!

Take care everyone.

Hopefully catch you again soon.

Fabulous card the sentiment..I know a lot of people that would love to adopt that as a good excuse to just have one! This would be a good card for either gender and I love the glass stain on the sentiment. xx

Hi Jules,

Super card and love the image. The sentiment is brilliant.

I have been working in the garden for a few days myself. Got a lot done but still a few bits to do. Even managed to get husband to dead head the roses in the front garden and I did the back garden. Just waiting for the gardener to come and cut the grass, as it's 4 weeks now since he did it!!

Got my first Craft Fair Sunday week. I have been through all 12 of my stock boxes, to make sure they were ok. Looking forward to meeting some of my crafty friends too.

sister on the mend and hopes to get home next week, They are arranging carers for her and her husband.

Love and hugs,
Carol XXXX

I love it!!!! what a great card and brilliant sentiment too xxx

Lisa said...

Great image, I could totally see using that for a card of two for my aunt and sister. I love the light coloring of it too so that the coloring did not take a way from the image.

We've had a sun, clouds and a little bit of rain. But the temps have been in the high 90's, so hot, hot, hot. Being stuck inside, I'm in the air conn thankfully. Glad you are enjoying the garden and sunshine! I LOVE this card Jules! That image is fabulous!!! I love your computer generated sentiment too. Love this card, so fun, so great for a wine lover. Hugs, Brenda

Enny said...

Wow, a fantastic card, and such a funny education ! Today we have sunshine, but the last 2 days terrible floods in the east of Belgium, houses destroyed and many casualties... Hugs, Enny

Just what's needed, a nice glass of wine and sitting under the umbella in the shade. A wonderful card, I love it.
