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 had a good day.

The sunshine of yesterday didn't last too long here and we are back to rain again today :-(

A share today that uses one of my favourite Woodware Stamps.  I just love colouring this image.

This used:

Image:  Woodware "FRP010" Big Catch
Sentiment:  Pink Petticoat
Backing Papers:  Cuddly Buddly
Sizzix Die:  Stars
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Martha Stewart Punch:  Embossed Zig Zag
ProMarkers and Chalk for the Rosy Cheeks

I was really tempted to add glossy accents to the wellies but just as I was about to apply it I had a nasty flashback of the last time I did that .. .. .. and my image bubbled .. .. so I cowarded out LOL!!  

.. .. ..  and for those who were struggling with the heart yesterday . .. .. it was hiding in the middle of one of the purple flowers.

Sorry if I gave anyone torture treatment!!!

Have a lovely evening everyone.

What a great image and a fab card design.
I obviousy didn't look long enough for the heart yesterday as I thought I'd spotted it straight away in the pattern on the vase - but then it wouldn't have been 'your' heart would it. Silly me.

What a fun image Jules & perfect for a grandson's card. I don't blame you for not using the glossy accents but I must admit it would have looked good.

Hi Jules
You sound as though you had a very busy blogging break but it's nice to take time out sometimes isn't it. All this rain is certainly making the garden grow but you're ahead of me with cucumbers and the like. We have lots of radishes but everything else is still getting going. I was late planting I think.
Your cards are all as gorgeous as always and I'm so glad your car passed it's MOT. It's a great feeling isn't it.
Hugs Lisax
