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 all is good with you. 

Friday night .. .. woo hoo!!!  Here comes the weekend!!

A very bright and simple make to share today .. ..  I was feeling well summery today with the sun shining so found myself going for the brighter and bolder colours .. .. so sunglasses at the ready!!

Here we go:

This used:

Image: Woodware "FRW006" Skateboard Dude  (I love colouring this little chappie)
Sentiment Tickets:  Hero Arts "CL171" Sparkle Clear Tickets
Backing Paper:  Funky Hand Papercraft Factory "Colour Me Happy"
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads

Nothing too fancy .. .. but I love it!!

So just time for a quick catch up on the progress of our garden crops .. .. you will remember that I mentioned our disappointing results with the courgette plants that we set so Hubby brought home a "yellow" courgette plant.  Well that one seems quite happy.

But separate to that we had already planted a few more "green" courgette seeds in the hope of getting a plant from those.  Well guess what?  We now have SIX .. .. yes .. .. SIX .. .. green courgette plants starting to grow!!!  Oh my!!!

I hope I can find some people to take five of them off my hands!!!!  Otherwise there are going to be little bags of courgettes at the end of my drive with a sign saying .. .. "pleast take me".  LOL!!!

There are only so many things you can do with courgettes!!

So it is my MOT in the morning .. .. keep everything crossed.

It looks like my followers have all gone AWOL again .. .. they must have gone away for the weekend .. .. I hope you all have fun!!  Sorry I can't join you - my lovely Sis is coming for a meal and a sleepover and I wouldn't miss that for the world!!

Hi Jules,

A great, fun card! Fab colouring, as usual.

Our neighbour grows courgettes and always has a glut - we are the lucky recipients of his spares!

Hope the MOT goes ok!

Hugs, Lynne x

Sweet fun card, Jules!! Love that paper! It's lovely growing your own little bits isn't it? I'm currently trying to fend off the birds from eating my strawberries, they've already eaten one lot! And I had some caterpillars strip my herb pot so nature is winning at the moment!! x

Love this Jules; so bright and cheery and perfect for a little chap. I have this stamp somewhere and the little girly ones that are part of the same range. Our school allotment is going well and we all got to take some salad leaves home this week. I'm supposed to be helping to run the Allotment Club but I'm like one of the kids, lol! xx

Hi Hunny

its me again - reading backwards actually - just having a little look round blogs - I should well have been here long before now - but nothing personal - i've not been to anyones LOL!!!

we have one of those really little greenhouses and OH grows his toms although they are planted out up the garden now... we love cucumbers so we have lots of those - i think he's done a melon but not sure. Would love to grow pumpkins just to see who out of the 4 of us grows the biggest. Lots of garden fun!

Enjoy sweetie.
