My photo
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 today has been a good one for you.  I also hope that some of you have now been able to make friends a little with Mr Blogger following that little tip of earlier today.

Very wet, cold and windy here .. .. .. and I was actually pleased to see the rain!!  Can you believe that .. .. someone in England pleased to see rain!!!!  Never heard of before I bet LOL!!

Just a quick post and share from me today as I am running very late.

This creation used:

Images and sentiment:  Hero Arts "CL338" Clear Stamp Set "Be Yourself"
Backing Paper:  Memory Stor
Distress Inks:  Peeled Paint, Crushed Olive and Frayed Burlap (all added to the leaf image and sprayed with water before stamping)
Koh-I-Noor Pencils
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
White Gel Pen used to outline the leaves

So that is me for today.

Time to go and make something scrummy to eat.

See you tomorrow.

It has been great to see the rain but as we have spent the day at /chelsea it wiyld have been better if it hadn't been quite so severe. Still had a wonderful time and Suffolk is still in a drought situation.
I just love this card though.

Oh Jules I LOVE this card. Love the bird stamp; love the leaves (are they part of the DP or are they a stamp?); love the colors and really love the simple layout.
Love it, just love it.
