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 your Monday has been good.

The sunshine finely managed to peep through late afternoon after a promise it was going to be here much earlier .. .. but better late than never!!

Here is my share for today:

This used:

Circular Image:  Verve Stamps "Thankful Accents"
Sentiment:  Funstamps "FG12 Happy Birthday (Dots)
Backing Papers:  Hot Off the Press "Cardmaker's Classic Creative Pack"
Woodware Punches:  Daisies in various sizes
Martha Stewart Punch:  Traditional Scallop
Nestabilities:  Classic Circles Large and Scalloped Circles Large
Ribbon, cord, charm and pearls from the Stash Box

So that is me for today.

Time to go and get a spag bol on the go and then a night of cutting out is in order.

Plus I am hoping to "come across" a small nestie that I have lost from my collection :-(

Typically it is the one I use the very most of all (so much so that lots of the bronze has actually disappeared from it).  It never gets put back where it should be .. .. it normally sits in its own personal little box .. .. but it isn't there!!!  No matter how many times I keep checking :-(

I even emptied out my bin from my craft pod in desperation .. .. but sadly it was a "no show".  Hopefully it turns up .. .. and soon.

I don't want to have to buy another set but if it doesn't appear in the next week I will have to as I "need" it!!.

Have a good evening everyone.


p.s.  Thank you very much to the ladies who have nominated me for an award.  You are all very kind.  I promise to respond as soon as I have thought up 7 interesting facts that I haven't already shared LOL!!

Wow! this is gorgeous Jules! I love the whole design and layout! The flower with the stamped circle is beautiful !!
Ooh I've lost a few of my little dies like that - it drives you mad! a few times I have found them using my grabber stick which has a magnet on the end!! they sometimes drop down the side or back of my desk when I am taking mats off- really annoying!!
Hope you find it !! ;-)
Have a good week!
