A very warm welcome to my teeny, tiny part of the huge world of blogging. This is where I 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 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

Another quick post tonight with another one of my favourites - Messy Rabbit!!

Tonight he is sailing the high seas - I just love Messy Rabbit. He is another image that is lovely to colour.

But can you believe that my favourite bit was the "message in a bottle" - I thought this was so cute (and no - the heart isn't curled up in the message!!!).

To make this creation I used:

Image: Joanna Sheen MR146 "Rowing Rabbit"
Sentiment: Penny Black "Critter Party"
Backing Paper: Papercraft World
Inkssentials "Glossy Accents"
Diamond Stickles
Brads from the stash box
KPS16 Funky Heart Punch

and that is it.

Sorry but I cannot remember which Papercraft World disc I got this paper from but if anyone particularly wants to know then shout up and I will do a search through my discs. It is a lovely design and one I use quite a bit for "water cards".

As you can probably tell I print off a lot of my backing papers from discs / downloads but unfortunately I end up with lots of scrap bits which I can never part with (after all you only need a small bit of scrap to punch a heart out of LOL!!!) and I cannot always remember where I printed them from. (But I always know who supplies them!!).

That is me for tonight. Thanks for dropping by.

Love Jules xx

I've just written a comment and then lost it so I don't know if you've got it or not - you will think me nuts if you get two!
This card is great - I love Messy Rabbit too although I haven't seen this one before. You've coloured him beautifully. It took me a while to find your heart! Love the papers for the water.
