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 you are all ok.

Did you all get the rain last night?  My lawn was squelching for the first time in ages when I walked on it this morning!!!

I'm not holding out much hope for that heatwave sunny day tomorrow that's for sure.

Anyway, a super quick post tonight as we are meeting up with some friends in around half an hour .. . eeek!!!

This make is a take on a card I made for Anice at Funky Hand when she launched the "Our Betty" range of stamps.  I loved it so much I put it into my "make it again sometime" picture folder on my computer.  Great for scanning through when you want to do a quick make.

This used:

Sentiment:  Funky Hand "Our Betty Love N' That" Stamp Set
Backing Papers:  Funky Hand Download "Huge Funky Love Word Book"
Martha Stewart Punch:  Daisy
Cuttlebug heart and embossing die
Ribbon and gems from the stash box

So that is me for tonight.

Tomorrow I am back with my snippet makes .. .. and a whole playground full of playmates who kept me company this week!!!

Have a lovely evening everyone.

Fabulous card Jules - I think its good to go back and reuse ideas - they just get better don't they? I'm keeping my fingers crossed for some sunshine - keep positive!!! Mind you we'll all be grumbling that it's too hot - we're never satisfied lol. Enjoy tomorrow whatever it brings.

Love Lynda xxx
