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.

Hi Everyone

Happy Saturday!  


Sunglasses may be needed before you go any further LOL!!!

I hope you have all had a lovely start to your weekend.

Some of mine has been spent putting to use a stamp that just hasn't been used enough .. .. but I suppose we all have some of those in our collection don't we?!?!?!?

This used:

Image:  Hero Arts "K5315" Birthday Gift
Backing Papers:  Pink Petticoat "Gingham" and "Tiniest Pretty Little Hearts" (printed in black onto green card)
Martha Stewart Punch:  Traditional Scallop
X-Cut:  Tiny Daisy Punch
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
My Trust Sewing Machine
Glamour Dust
Metallic Cord from my stash box

and that is it!!!

It looks my card has a bit of dandruff now I am looking at the photographs .. .. but it is where I have brushed the glamour dust away (not very thoroughly).  Tut, tut!!!  You can't get a decent blog post around here for love nor money LOL!!!

Enjoy what is left of your evening everyone and I will catch you again tomorrow with my snippets.

This is a fabulous card Jules, gorgeous bright colours, you are so right - I think we all have loads of stamps that are not used enough.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Gorgeous cheerful card Jules. I think the majority of my stamps fall into the category of "not used enough"...apart from those of course which belong in the "not used at all" category! Carol x
