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

Happy Monday!!!

I hope your day has gone well and your week has got off to a good start.  This is a scheduled post so I don't know how mine is going at this point in time.

I had a play with the lovely Crazy Daisy flower loom yesterday that a very kind person sent to me last week .. .. this time using narrow ribbon!  Very pleased with the result!

This used:

Backing Papers:  Nitwits "Cottage Charm Too" (I think the blue paper is gorgeous.  It looks embossed but it isn't)
Sentiment:  Hobby Art Stamps "GR1833B" Happy Birthday
Martha Stewart Punch:  Deep Edge Flower Bed
Marianne Design Creatables:  Fence, Bird and House (but I only used the fence so don't search for the rest LOL!!)
Sizzix Die:  "656521" Flower with Leaves and Stem #2 (I just used the stem)
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
X-Cut tiny daisy punch
Hobbycraft "Knit and Stitch" flower button
Diamond Stickles
Ribbon from my Stash Box
My Trusty Sewing Machine

and there we go.

I wonder what my next flower will be made from?

Enjoy the rest of your day!!  See you again soon.

Beautiful card as usual Jules and I'm paying particular attention to that flower as I picked a flower loom up at the craft event in Port Sunlight - it kind of jumped off the stand straight into my hands and was too good a bargain to ignore. I've not opened it up yet to see what to do but hoping it'll make some rustic type flowers with garden twine! Fingers crossed! Sarah x

What a delightful posie you made with your gift loom. I remember these...may even have one in my sewing room! Never thought to use for a flower on a card.Love that bright button center also. So many cute embellies on this card, but I particularly liked your little fence. TFS
