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.

NOW THAT'S WHAT YOU CALL A HEART !

Hi Everyone

I hope the day has been kind to you .. .. as well as the weather.

A very hectic day here and we still need to have baths and eat so I will be super, duper quick with today's share:





This used:

Image:  Fiskars Continuous Stamp "Flowers"
Backing Paper:  DCWV "Black and White Prints" and Pink Petticoat for the stripes
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Pinking Shears
Snippet of Lace and one yummy, scrummy button!

The Fiskars stamp should actually fit onto a stamping wheel .. .. but I don't have one of those and simply stuck the stamp onto a cuttlebug plate and stamped it as normal.

Thank you for all my birthday wishes yesterday.  I had a lovely day and evening.

Off to that there bath now .. .. .. and I'll catch you again tomorrow.

Love

Gorgeous card ... there's something very French chic about the colour combination. Never thought of using a Cuttlebug plate for stamping very large stamps but will do in the future :) Pleased to hear you did indeed have a happy birthday. Hugs, Elizabeth x

A stunning card. Pretty papers and the stamp is super. Who needs a wheel anyway. Looks like it works just fine flat.

Jacqui's little piece of England said...

Thank you for you kind comments on my blog, I have to admit that your cards are so clean and fresh and as a new crafter (just 3 months) you have been a real inspiration to me so again I have to say a big thank you.

No trouble spotting the heart today then! Interesting technique for the stamping too, but love how it came out! You are totally correct about the flowers and the cold, the cherry blossoms are on the ground and the magnolia is completely brown, daffs look a little brown around the edges, but the pear is OK, that's something at least.

Hugs
