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 there

I hope everyone is well this morning.

Still dull and chances of rain here today - makes you feel extra happy to be sitting warm and dry at the craft desk doesn't it.

Just a quick share as I have quite a lot I need to pull in today.

This creation features a new stamp that I bought as a "second hand bargain" from Julia at Stampers Supermarket .. .. and you know what it is like when you get a new stamp .. .. you just have to do something with it. Just love this one (I think I say this about every Penny Black stamp in existence LOL!!).

So here is my share of the day

This used:

Image: Penny Black "1644L" Say Cheesecake
Sentiment: Hobby Art Clear "CS016D" General Greetings
Backing Papers: Funky Hand CD "Dreams Come True"
Diamond Stickles

Aren't those little mice just so cute (though I don't say that when one gets lost and wanders through my garage on its way to the fields!!!).

So now to the exciting news .. .. .. there is another CD to come from Anice at Funky Hand called "Colour me Happy".

If you would like a sneaky peek at some of the images that are on it then click here as Anice was teasing us with it yesterday. As a DT member I should be getting a version to play with very soon (hurry up postman) .. .. and then it will be released soon afterwards.

Personally I haven't yet tired of the Dreams Come True CD .. .. so for another to be coming along is brilliant news.

So I am now off to make a start on my day .. .. .. catch you all again tomorrow.

Have a good day and thanks for dropping by.

Love Jules xx

Very cute card, great bargains at that place! Lucky you getting a new cd, definitely a bonus to be on that DT.

If the new cd is as good as the Dreams Come True one you should be well pleased. I love it.
Your card is lovely - I love that sweet image too.

A lovely card, beautifully coloured. You are lucky to only have mice in the garage - at this time of year my cat proudly brings them into the house and lets them run around! Warmest wishes, Lesley

We've had the rain, not just the chance of it and you're right, crafting is definitely the best occupation for days like these.
Love your mice and your heart and swirls from the last post is just stunning. I love it.
Have a great weekend. Maybe the sun will show it's face again.
Hugs Lisax
