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

A share of a very quick and easy card today.

This is one I use if I am in a rush and need a card "fast". I am a bit naughty really because there is so much more you could do with this stamp but it only ever gets to come out when I am in a hurry .. .. must make amends and use it "properly" one day.

I think I will leave the stamp out to remind me not to be so lazy in future!!!

Here is the lazy creation

and the "super flat" side view (but at least you can see the sparkle better)

This used:

Image: Hero Arts "K5315" Birthday Gift
Backing Papers: DCWV "Citrus Stack"
Martha Stewart: Traditional Scallop
Josy Rose: Nail Heads
Glamour Dust
Ribbon from the stash box

I think I also feel this as a lazy card because the sentiment is part of the rubber stamp.

Next time you see this image I promise I will give it the treatment it deserves!!!

Well I don't know about your part of the world but here we have had rain most of the day and it feels soooo chilly!! I'm not ready for Autumn yet!!

Take care everyone and I will catch you again tomorrow.

Love Jules xx

It may be a lazy card Jules, but it's fab. I love this image and I haven't seen it before. Love Kerry xxx

It certainly doesn't look lazy, Jules, it looks great and perfect when you need a "fast" card.
It's been dry all day here for a change but cool and overcast. I hope that's not the end of Summer too.
Hugs Lisax
