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

Just a quick share from me today .. .. lots to do!!!

What happened to Sunday being the day of rest? I feel like I try to cram more into a Sunday ahead of a new working week starting than ever before.

A quick post to my blog and then I have washing to contend with and a list of chores in the house and garden.

I am starting off in the garden as the weather does look half decent. A bit overcast so hopefully it won't be too warm.

The first job is getting all (or most) of the moss out of the lawns .. .. thankfully we have an electric rake thing that will make the job easier .. .. but I have some large areas of lawns to go at!! Eekkk!! I can feel tomorrow's backache already!!!

So before I get my gardening shoes on here is a quick make which in my rush "nearly" made it through the net without a heart!!! Shock horror!!!

Anyways, here is the creation

and the up close look (which I am quite into now)

This used:

Image: Hampton Art Stamps "H4765" Watercolor Daisy
Backing Papers: My Mind's Eye "Pretty Please" Spring Papers (free with a magazine)
Sentiment: Pink Petticoat
Josy Rose: Flat Backed Pearls (coloured with ProMarkers)
Ribbon from the stash box

So that is me for now .. .. how does the song go?

"Heigh ho, heigh ho .. .. it's off to work I go"
Have a lovely day everyone and thank you for calling by. Hopefully I will get chance to catch up with a few blogs later today.

Love Jules xx

This ones lovely Jules. I love the colours and backing papers. The sketchy flower is perfect with them too.

I too have been hard at the changing bedding, washing, pegging out, tidying, etc., etc. I've only come online because I have a couple of jobs to do and some printing so I have to get it done before we move the computer out to make way for my darling Isabella to come tomorrow. I didn't work this hard before I retired, Lol!

Have a good day yourself Jules.
