My photo
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.

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY

Hi Everyone

Another really lovely day here with beautiful sunshine (lovely apart from the fact that the sunshine makes my windows look like they are in need of a bit of a treat!!  LOL!!!).

A quick share tonight for adding to my pile of Mother's Day cards.  Some people are looking for flat ones for posting so this will be one of those .. ..  the little pearls are tiny enough to keep the card away from the dreaded "large letter" price bracket!




This used:

Image Digistamp Boutique "Flower Border"
Sentiment:  Digistamp Boutique "Mother's Day Set" (part of a Mother's Day set that I was persuaded to buy by the lovely Katina's beautiful make here)
Backing Papers:  DCWV "Citrus Stack"
X-Cut Butterfly Punch
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
My Trusty Sewing Machine
ProMarkers
Self Adhesive Pearls

and that is it!

I am going to enter this into the Digistamp Boutique Competition for February.

So that is me for today .. .. a super quick post for a change.

Love

Just lovely Jules - I have a lady who openly admits she loves my heavily embellished cards but won't buy them because of the postage costs... so this is a great idea and gives people the opportunity to send a 'hand made' one without the extra cost. x
