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!!

I hope the weather has been kind to you today.

I think it has been the hottest day so far here!  But thankfully it is cooling down a little now . .. and there is even a little "much needed" rain falling.  That will be nice for the plants I have been moving about in the garden.  I love the smell of rain after a hot day.

A quick question:

Why do slugs and snails only eat plants that we pay for?  Why are they not interested in weeds?!?!?!?

Answers on a postcard please LOL!!

So I am here with a quick card I actually made yesterday:

This used:

Image and Sentiment:   Lili of the Valley "Special Delivery"
Backing Papers:  Pink Petticoat
Martha Stewart"  Traditional Scallop
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Ribbon and Buttons from My Crafty Stash Box

and that is me for today.

Did you spot the heart?  LOL!!

I'll hopefully catch you again tomorrow with my snippet makes.

A beautiful Baby card, Jules. Your question about slugs and snails made me laugh! I have given up with lupins and lettuces - was wondering if it was just plants beginning with L, but then they went for the fennel!

Ha ha ha... wouldn't it be nice if slugs and snails do eat weeds and leave our paid and wanted plants alone! Could someone train them??
I found the hearts but had to zoom in to spot them. ^_^ Just love your cards. They always look well made and beautiful!

Brenda said...

Oh this is so darling and sweet Jules! I love that sweet image. It is the most darling baby card I've seen in a long time! I'm always a fan of the papers you used cause they are always the most perfect that goes with your images.
Why does weeds grow when nothing else grows too? Slugs are a pita for sure and always want what you have paid for, when you find out why let us know!
Hugs, Brenda
