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.

YEARNING

Hi Everyone

Tuesday evening already .. .. .. I can just tell this week is going to fly by in the blink of an eye!!!

Mega stuff to get through this week .. .. and quite a bit to do this evening so I am flying in and out tonight with this little creation:




This used:

Image:  Penny Black "4058J" Yearning
Sentiment:  Lili of the Valley
Backing Papers:  Docraft "Wellington" .. .. what makes you think these papers are my favourites for Father's Day makes at the moment LOL!!!
Nestabilities:  Classic Square and Lacey Square
Button Twine from my stash box

and there we go!!!

I don't think this little hedgie needs to be worrying about being turfed out of that watering can for a while do you?  We have had enough rain over the last week to last a month .. .. and yet the mornings have been starting off lovely and sunny!!!

Having said that the greenhouse has needed watering a little .. .. and can you believe we have the first flowers on our tomato plants!  The earliest we have ever had them!!  I hope that means we aren't going to be left with so many green ones come Autumn.

Have a lovely evening everyone.  

Love

This is a gorgeous card Jules. I do so love PB stamps and they are one of the best stamping quality.
Just been out to tuck the Girls up for the night and they look dreadful with all the rain we have had today. The chicken run has huge puddles in there where they were making mud baths the other day! Poor things! I was tempted to let them dry on the fender in front of the fire, but I know what I will have to scoop up in the morning!

Now thats definitely a Hedgie, right? I'm not seeing things this time! LOL!!!

These Hedgie critters just so remind me of you Jules, I don't know why! You just seem to do them perfectly and I associate them with you since I guess you were the first blogger I knew, back when I first started, who used these adorable line of stamps!

Fabulous as always xoxo

If that hedgie was round here he'd have been washed completely out of the bucket with the downpour we had here last night. He looks snug where he is though on that lovely card.

Tedz said...

Love this card Jules, not least the PB stamp and LOTV paper. Didn't that sentiment start life as "Birthday"?? Clever change. Tomatoes are early - I hope you get a bumper crop. They say we will have a bumper crop of apples this year because the blossom is late and missed the bad frosts, I do hope so. Pauline xx
