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 I think it has been a bit warmer today .. .. the snow has certainly been melting a little.  I think we get another warmer day tomorrow and then cold again come the weekend.  Oh well!!

My favourite make today involves the silhouette grass again .. .. I really love this stamp.  When I bought it I did wonder if I would get my use out of it .. .. but I do!!!  What's more it also helps my spelling as I can now spell "silhouette" LOL!!!!!

So here we go:

This used:

Image:  Hero Arts "S5316" Silhouette Grass
Image:  Hero Arts "CL338" Be Yourself  (I just stamped the leaves from the set with distress ink and cut around them)
Sentiment:  Papermania "Stamping for Him"
Backing Paper:  Plain cream card and a piece of green scrap
Fiskars Punch:  Threading Water
Sizzix Die:  Dragongly #3 and Buckles
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Distress Ink:  Old Paper
Shrink Plastic
Dressmakers Tracing Wheel
Glamour Dust
Ribbon from the stash box coloured with promarkers

So that is my share for today - I hope you like it!

Just time for a quick bath ahead of Corrie.

Have a good evening everyone.

Beautiful, beautiful card in my favourite of all colours and I really must get that stamp! I nearly ordered it yesterday and then didn't and now I'm kicking myself again after seeing your card.

Away for a couple of days now Jules looking after my granddaughter. Back late Saturday or Sunday so have a good weekend.

Even though I have that stamp and love it, I STILL can't spell silhouette without looking it up! ;-) What a gorgeous card you made with it--I love that you've used the stamp for more than just a fall/harvest look too.
