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

My share today has come about simply because I wanted to use a "ticket" on my creation. I love tickets!!

I have a little pack of three clear ticket stamps and thought it was time to show them the light of day .. .. I chose the "ticket for a fun time" .. .. and decided what better to go with this than my skater boy.

So here is the finished look

and the close up

This used:

Image: Greeting Farm: Skater Ian
Ticket Sentiment: Hero Arts "CL171" Sparkle Clear: Tickets
Backing Papers: Memory Stor
Nestabilities: Classic Rectangles Small and Classic Scallop Rectangles Small
Sizzix Die: Star #2
Josy Rose: Nail Heads
Adirondack Dye Pad for distressing: Pebble
Cord from the stash box

I really enjoyed making this one. Skater Ian is probably my favourite Greeting Farm stamp.

Enjoy the rest of the day and I'll catch you again tomorrow.

Love Jules xx
