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 you have all been OK today .. .. I know Monday's are always tough!!  LOL!!!

It has been quite a sticky one here today .. but at least it dried the washing.

A super quick post tonight with a simple little make:

This used:

Image:  Hero Arts "F3255" Showy Blossom
Sentiment:  Woodware Clear Stamps "FRCL 128" Circular Greetings
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Big and Juicy Pad "Vibrant Primary" (along with my not very used brayer)
Heat it Up Embossing Powder:  Sea Foam
Ribbons from the Stash Box

and that is it!!!

I have made a few of these today in different colours.

My Sister and I counted up how many weeks it is until our fayres kick in .. .. nothing like a good shock to the system to get your production rate up!!!  LOL!!!

So now I have a poster on my wall telling me how many weeks everything is .. .. lest I forget .. . I just need to remember to change it every Saturday!

Catch you again tomorrow.

WOW , it's a gorgeous gorgeous card, may be simple but it's very effective. I really should stamp in other colours more, tend to stick to black lol! :)

Wow this is so beautiful Jules love that blending effect, I see that you used a Big'n'Juicy pad, I must treat myself to one of those, the colours look so effective behind that wonderful image.
