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

Happy Monday!!!

I hope you have had a good day.  I have spent some of mine going backwards and forwards to the washing line muliple times putting washing out and then bringing it back in because of silly bits of rain.  Then as soon as I have bought it in it would be fine again .. .. so the whole process would be repeated.  I gave up in the end but at least there has been some lovely fresh air blown through it all even if it didn't dry properly!!

My share for today uses the sketch from over at Friday Sketchers.

This used:

Image:  Penny Black "3470H" Gift Hedgy
Sentiment:  Pink Petticoat
Backing Papers:  Aimee Asher
Martha Stewart Punch:  Traditional Scallop
Diamond Stickles

and this is the sketch that was provided .. ..

I must admit I love starting creations with a sketch sometimes .. .. especially if I have a lot to get through.  It takes some of the thinking away LOL!!!

So today is the last day of February which means I am back tomorrow bright and early with my DT project for Penny Black at Allsorts.

Have a lovely evening everyone.

Hi Jules, I really like that sketch as there are lots of straight lines - that's about all I can cope with! Your card is gorgeous, as always. Love the papers/colours. xx

You did well getting the washing as far as outside, it was too cold, dark and dismal to even try drying outside here today. I had to laugh at your comments re twin tubs in your last post, my Mum's washing machine has just given up the ghost and she was complaining about having to buy a new one until she realised that it had replaced her twin tub about 35 years ago. Not bad going don't you think!!
Love your cards as always, Jules.
Hugs Lisax

Hi Jules, this is gorgeous. Love the cute image and fab papers.

Sounds you've been doing the hokey cokey with the washing. Hopefully we'll get some better weather soon to get it dry. Love the smell when it's been on the line.

A wonderful card. I love the paper.

I must admit I just leave the washing out if it rains as it was wet anyway! Luckily we do have more sun than rain here though.
