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 the day has treated you well.

The weather has been a bit of a mixed bag today .. .. but the rain has now stopped and the sun is making an appearance.

I was lucky enough to be chosen as one of the Top 3 over at The Stamp Fairy Challenge last week .. .. so in celebration I am here again with another of their scrummy images to play along with this week's challenge.  The theme this time is to use three embellishments .. .. so I have gone with three flowers.

Here is my little offering:

This used:

Image:  The Stamp Fairy "Lenny and Linda Wedding"
Sentiment:  Stampendous! "J180" Mr & Mrs
Backing Papers:  Aimee Asher
Martha Stewart Punch:  Traditional Scallop
Leone Em Pty Punch:  Ash Branch
Woodware Punches:  Daisy
Koh-I-Noor Pencils and Sansodor Blending Oil
Glamour Dust
Brads and Pearls from the stash box

Here is my lovely little badge:

Thank you ladies!!

Well it has been a bit of a nightmare getting this post up.  I hope Mr Blogger isn't feel "sickly" again!!  Let's hope not.

So tonight is Wednesday .. .. and you know what that means .. .. The Apprentice!!  Woo hoo!!

One of my favourite challenges this week.  They have a shopping list of items and have to buy all of the items on the list as cheaply as possible.  I wonder if my characters are going to stay safe again this week!!!

Have a lovely evening everyone and I will catch you again tomorrow.

Hi Jules, such a pretty card, got the cute factor and well done on your top 3 to!

Clare said...

Another lovely card Jules. Congrats on making top 3 as well, i can see why. The image is very cute too. Well i have to sadly admit Jules that i actually put the heating on earlier as i was freezing lol!. It has been cold and damp in sunny Eastbourne today and i have really felt the cold. Had a nice warm bath earlier to help warm up. I really feel the cold with my Rheumatoid and makes my joints ache, that's my excuse anyway for the heating coming on!!!. Lets hope it is nice and warm tomorrow. Big hugs Clare xxx
