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 your Saturday has been good.

We have had some much needed rain so most jobs have been indoors today.  I know all jobs count but we were hoping for just another couple of days in the garden.

Hubby goes back to work on Monday :-( and we still have lots of things on our list that are incomplete .. but not to worry .. .. it was a very ambitious list LOL!!!

So here is today's share

This used:

Image:  Stampendous Cling "CRR112" Ranunculus Field 
Sentiment:  Penny Black "Critter Party"
Backing Paper:  Dovecraft Back to Basics
Distress Ink:  Tattered Rose
Glamour Dust
Seam Binding and Charm from the stash box

Just the one picture today but it does have a posh background so hopefully that compensates. 

I have been photographing wedding stationery again and didn't want to dismantle my display because I have more pictures to take.  (Lazy madam).

So that is me for today.  I am now off for a good old blog hop and will be back tomorrow with a snippet or two.

lisa said...

I've just been reading back through your posts, Jules and realised it's almost a week since I visited last, smacked hands me!!!!!!
It sounds like you've been making good progress in the garden. We need to see some piccies please. I love being nosey. Love the idea of the upturned bucket as a table, definitely my style.
The rain will have been good for your plants if not for us, we desperately need it don't we.
Your cards are all stunners as always. I love the dress makers wheel run in ink and edging your card, really ingenious and the corner bookmark is another great idea.
The flowers on your make today are beautiful. I love your colouring with the touch of glitter, it's a very romantic card.
Enjoy your Sunday.
Hugs Lisax

These ranunculus are one of the first spring flowers and they are one of my favorites ( Others are peonies and hydrangeas:)....)
You coloring skills are fabulous did you know that? This card is pure beauty to look at.

I still have a lot to do in my garden but I am doing a little bit each day. Due to my back. I'm glad I'm on the mend; there is still so much to do....
