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

Well what a treat today turned out to be .. .. .. glorious weather .. .. I even got my washing dry!!

We seem to have one good day, one not so good day just recently so I am not holding out much hope for tomorrow LOL!!

Here is my share of the day

and the close up

This used:

Image:  Funstamps "FP110" Patchwork Daisy
Sentiment:  Woodware Clear Stamps "FRCL128" Circular Greetings
Backing Papers:  Cuddly Buddly digital download - Patchwork of Papers, Red
Fiskars Punch:  Threading Water

When I saw this backing paper I knew that I just had to have it as we used to have wallpaper that looked just like this in our kitchen when the boys were young.  Oh I love memory lane.

There are lots of other delicious patterns in the download too .. .. so the printer will be going on overdrive and you will be seeing those soon no doubt.

Catch you again soon everyone.  Thank you for calling by.

It's been a fantastic day hasn't it, Jules. A clear blue sky and warm sunshine. The rain is just a memory!! Lots of washing dried and ironed. I feel very industrious today too.
I love your patchwork rose and the BP suits it perfectly. Downloads are great for an endless supply aren't they.
Hugs Lisax

Hi Jules, I've been missing for a couple of days too and I see I've missed some lovely creations again. This one is gorgeous. I love the colours and the patchwork image is lovely.

I see you managed to work out how to change your blog without losing anything. Clever girl! Were you like me and held your breath with your finger hovering over the save button? I closed my eyes as I clicked convinced I'd have a blank page when I opened them, Lol!

Thank you for the lovely thoughts Jules and yes I enjoyed thos e cuddles so much I really missed them when he went back to school today.

I am thankfully more or less over the tonsilitis and so is Bobby, we just need to finish our anti-biotics. My back is miles better, but still getting twinges and it's not so good on a mroning but I work it off when i'm moving around.
