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

Another card with a Tattered Floral flower!!!!! Sorry!!!!

I warned you that you would be sick of these flowers .. .. but you know what it is like when you have something new?

Here is my little share

and the close up

This used:

Image: Stampabilities "HMGR1006" Mouse Drops
Backing Paper: Funky Hand Download "Shabby Saturday"
Sentiment: Computer Generated
Sizzix Die: "656640" Tattered Florals
Nestabilites: Classic Rectangles Small and Classic Scalloped Rectangles Small
Lace and Brads from the stash box

I had a little smile to myself when colouring the "poorly" mouse in and I deliberately gave him big rosy cheeks because my Mum once told me that when I was a child she always knew if I was ill because I looked healthy!
I have a very pale natural complexion (otherwise known as the "death warmed up" look in our house) and when I run a temperature I get big rosy cheeks - which makes me look healthy for a change. LOL!!

But I really do think that little mouse looks poorly!!!

So that is me for today. I promise a creation with no tattered floral flower tomorrow.

Have a good evening and thank you for calling by to see what I am up to.

Love Jules xx

Hi Jules, loving that card, the house mice get me every time. I say I'm not going to do cute but every time I fall for them. That poor little mouse looks dreadfully sick but you can bet your bottom dollar his medicine will work wonders and he'll be right as rain tomorrow. The Flower is fab, coloured perfectly and definitely needed on this card, use them as much as you like I love them:D xx
