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 the day has been kind to you all!!

The weather has been glorious in my neck of the woods today .. .. .. could summer be coming back?  Oh I hope so!!

My share today is for the "Oldie But A Goodie Challenge" .. .. where this time the theme is "Where In the World".

So I had a quick rummage through my stamps and found my Sugar Nellie Cheerleader which reminds me of America .. .. so hopefully this will count.

This used:

Image:  Sugar Nellie "Cheerleader" 
Bunting Image:  Magnolia
Sentiment:  Free on a magazine ages ago
Backing Paper:  Aimee Asher (and no your eyes are not playing tricks on you .. .. that is how it is meant to look LOL!!)
Nestabilities: Standard Circles Large, Classic Scalloped Circles Large
Crystal Stickles
Ribbon from the Stash Box

So that is me for today.  The evening has been spent re-potting in the greenhouse and  being grateful that no more courgettes have made an appearance  LOL!!!.  

Bath next and then a bit of a sit down and an early night I think. 

Have a lovely evening everyone.

See you tomorrow.

HI Jules fabulous card it took me straight to L.A. where my daughter is at the moment on her travels. Gorgeous image and beautiful colours. It took me ages to find the heart (read your top banner) then I realised there were lots around the sentiment!!

Hi Jules!

You did it again; this is a jaw dropper!
I love the coloring of that cute cheerleader and that banner looks great! And the way you added the sentiment; at first I thought it was the perfect rosette; I noticed the scalloped circle after that. Brilliant use of your dies :)

Love and hugs,
