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

Well Monday has come around again .. .. another week begins!

I wonder what this one will hold?  I know what a lot of it will be but there are always a few surprises thrown in for good measure aren't there!

Today has been another wedding work and card order day for me but there is one little card I can share with you.    

This used:

Image:  LOTV "Teddy Flower"
Sentiment:  Pink Petticoat "Happy Birthday Sentiments"
Backing Papers:  DCWV "Citrus Stack" (I am determined to empty some of the stacks that only have a few pages left in them!!)
Martha Stewart Punch:  Traditional Scallop
Woodware Punch:  Small Daisy
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Diamond Stickles

and that is it!!

I received a few emails asking me where I got the image from for the lovely lady with the "HUGE CAKE" who was on my snippet make yesterday.

Well surprise, surprise it is from Pink Petticoat .. .. one of the Lola Rose images that you can find here.

Enjoy what is left of today and I will catch you again tomorrow folks.

Thank you for all your lovely comments.  I do appreciate them and welcome to my new followers.  I hope I don't torture you too much searching for the hearts!!  LOL!!

A lovely card Jules - with colours that make me think of spring (thank you for that) and a gorgeous image. Just wish my garden was big enough to have a few sunflowers this year - but no chance.
