A very warm welcome to my teeny, tiny part of the huge world of blogging. This is where I am hoping to 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 always 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 are all well. A mixed bag of weather here .. .. I don't really think it knows what to do!! LOL!!

Today I have had a play with a lovely stamp that I won from my lovely craft mate Sal over at Crafty Salutations.

I actually won two stamps but chose to play with this one first .. .. but I was torn because they are both gorgeous. I am just hoping that Sal will be pleased with what I have done and that she feels I am worthy of being their new owner.

Thank you Sal .. .. you are very kind.

So here is my little creation
This used:

Image (my prize): Tim Holtz Collection Stampers Anonymous "COM022" Flutter
Image for main background: Hero Arts "S5316" Silhouette Grass
Image for second layer: Elusive Images "32531" Script Background
Sentiment: Elusive Images "UDLHC0005"
Distress Inks: Tea Dye and Wild Honey
Josy Rose: Nail Heads
ProMarker Pen for shading the butterflies slightly

Have a lovely evening everyone. Sorry if I haven't been to visit you recently .. .. I am deep in "wedding stationery mode" at the moment .. .. but I am trying to call and visit as and when I get chance.

Love Jules xx

Well, they certainly went to a great home, Jules. I saw you'd won these little beauties. Congrats, I'm deeply envious and I love what you've done with them. That corn stamp is gorgeous too isn't it and the layers all work so well.
Hope things are going well with your stationary, don't work too hard.
Hugs Lisax
