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 snuggly and warm!!

What a very, very cold start again this morning .. .. but tomorrow we have been promised a slight rise in temperature .. .. but only for one day!!  Oh well  we will just have to be grateful with that for now.

A share today that could have been a snippet make if I hadn't cut into a brand new paper stack that I bought half price from Dunelm at the weekend!!  LOL!!!   Never mind I am sure Di will have loads of playmates in the snippet playground .. even if it is super cold.  I love papers with writing on and just couldn't wait for a play with my new gain!!

The flowers were stamped onto plain card and cut out .. .. there are even more flowers in the stamp set .. .. these are just a few of them!!

This used:

Flowers images:  Hero Arts "CL290"  Printed Flowers
Sentiment:  Elzybells (sadly no longer trading)
Backing Papers:  GCD Studios "Soul Food"
Martha Stewart Punch:  Daisy
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Buttons and ribbons from the Stash Box

Mmmm... loving this stack.  Not as much as my Ella Blue from GCD Studios .. .. but it has lots of potential.

I am going to enter my creation into the Papertake Weekly Challenge this week where they would like to see Buttons, Bows, Bling and Blooms (what a tongue twister that is!!).. .. and this can any of these or all of these!!!  

Some of you may remember this little set of notelets I made and popped into a little storage box last week .. .. but the link to the instructions for making the box wasn't working!!

Well the link is working fine now so here it is - along with lots of other templates!!  Have fun!!!

I'll catch you again tomorrow .. .. have a lovely evening.

Great card Jules - love all those flower stamps and your paper stack is indeed fab ... I could be tempted by those stamps but I've got willpower :)) Love the two types of ribbon together too. I have been frozen to the core for the last few days, I'm even considering buying some Damart long johns, I'm soooo cold, and that's with the heating on full blast! Roll on the spring :) Elizabeth x
