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

Well I thought I was never going to get here today.

The late evening sunshine lured me outside to plant the runner beans into the garden and get the tomato plants potted up into their "grown up" size pots .. .. as well as put shading up to one half of the greenhouse.   The shading for the other half will have to wait until tomorrow.  I think I should have posted first!!  LOL!!!

Oh well I am here now with my little "simples" share

This used:

Image:  This one I have had quite a while purchased from a lady called Sandra Dry .. .. but I cannot see a link to it for you.
Backing Papers:  Funky Fairy (no longer trading)
Sentiment:  Computer generated
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Crystal Stickles

So I'm afraid most of what I have used on this creation is probably no longer available .. but I thought you might like to see it anyway.

I still need to have my bath and get something to eat so won't hang about tonight.

Hopefully I will be a little earlier tomorrow.
