My photo
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

I hope your day has gone well.

It has been a bit of a mixed bag here weather wise .. .. but pleasant enough nonetheless.

A quick share today of my favourite make of the day ..

This used:

Image:  Teddy Bo
Sentiment Pink Petticoat
Backing Papers:  The brown shaded papers are from Funky Hand but I am not sure where the blue one has come from as it was in my snippet drawer (or should I say "one of them" LOL!!)
Martha Stewart Punch:  Embossed Zig Zag
ProMarkers and chalk
Ribbon, Buttons and Eyelet from the Stash Box

Time now to go and eat my snap and then hopefully a catch up in blogland.  I didn't manage it earlier so have a few of you lovely peeps to come and visit.

Talking of food tonight we are having the first of our garden crops for this year .. .. 8 radishes .. .. 4 each!!!  LOL!!

We will be eating other things alongside them though .. .. we aren't on a micro diet!!

Right off to see what still needs doing and will catch you again soon.

Hi Jules, what a nice colour choice of blue & brown, they go really well together. Cute Teddy Bo image just right for a baby card & smashing worded ribbon. Enjoy your radishes & what ever else your having. Nothing like eating stuff you've grown yourself!
