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 Monday is going well.  I have a busy evening ahead so thought I would catch up with you all nice and early.

Lots more rain here so my day didn't need to start with my normal watering of the crops!!!  Only the greenhouse and cold frame needed a bit of love .. . .. and our first cucumber is nearly ready to eat.  I can't believe how much it grows over the course of a day!!!

My share today is an entry into the Stamp Fairy Challenge.  I haven't entered this challenge for a while so thought I should make amends.

The theme this week is a colour challenge with the colours being, Kraft, Turquoise and Melon (my melon is a shade of water melon)

This used:

Image:  Stamp Fairy Lennie "Thank you"
Backing Paper:  Aimee Asher
Go Kreate:  Large Frames Scalloped Squares
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Boggly eyes
Crystal Stickles

and for those who read my post yesterday  .. .. .. I would just like to say that snippets from my naughty drawer "were" used on this creation LOL!!!  In fact I used some on quite a few of my creations today (and didn't make any new ones!!  Result!!!).

So Tom was the winner of The Apprentice last night!!!  Yay!!!  I wish they wouldn't keep calling him a nerd and a geek though .. .. I think that is very rude! 

What on earth am I going to do on Wednesday now?

Have a lovely evening everyone.

See you again tomorrow

I love these Stamp Fairy images and this one looks so cute with the little eyes you've stuck on! I missed The Apprentice last night as we went to see Harry Potter. I'm so pleased that Tom won as he seems such a genuinely nice man. xx

Brilliant card Jules, Love the eyes !!!

It's raining here too! And I'm pleased for Tom although I was very sad for Helen. I think "Sugar" (gosh how that made me laugh) should have offered her a job if she wanted one.
Love your card though - just the thing to bring a smile to my face on this dreary day when I'm struggling to make a wedding card! Hugs, Lesley

Great to see you're getting some of those snippets used but I think considering how many cards you make that your snippet stash isn't that bad!! ;o)
