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!

What a fast day .. .. all the other days this week had better not disappear so quickly as there is a lot to pull in!!

I am on a mission to use up some of the old paper pads I have stored away so this little creation uses a couple of pages out of one of them.

This used:

Image:  Hero Arts "H2817" Garden Flowers Sketch
Sentiment:  Pink Petticoat
Backing Papers:  Wild Rose Studio "Lilac Mist"
Nestabilities:  Deckled Rectangles
My Trust Sewing Machine
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Diamond Stickles

I can't wait to see all of the flowers popping up again in the garden.  The daffodils are already through with buds on!

Before I go quite a few of you asked about the sentiment on my first Snippet Card yesterday.  Some people thought it was a computer generated one and wanted to know what font I had used .. .. .. sorry to disappoint you but it was a Penny Black rubber stamp.  "2908F .. .. to you"  (I wish I could type in that font!).

Enjoy what is left of your evening and I'll catch you again soon .. .. I hope!

Oh yes, spring is just around the corner (fingers crossed). Daffs are in bud and I spotted the first clump of primroses in the paddock hedge today. Bunnies are eating my crocuses though!! Your fab flowery card, however, is sure to last much longer!! xx

Fabulous card, great layout and pretty too.
I have this stamp, only thought the other day it was time I used it again. I am also on a mission with old papers and paper pad. Good luck to you and me lol.

Using up paper pads is a noble idea! I need to get on that one myself. I love your card, so pretty and springy. Your image goes so well with the pink and purple papers. I love the touches of nail heads here and there... and the wee heart one.

Love the spring flowers! What a happy card--the recipient will LOVE it!!

And our daffodils are growing here too--but I hear we might get more snow on Wednesday. Here's hoping they're resilient this year!!
