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 had a good day .. .. and if not that tomorrow will be much, much better!

Here I am carrying on my "get well" theme.

I have a pretty good idea what images I want to use on my cards for this theme  -   but there is a naughty one that I just can't get out of my head.  

I won't do it .. .. .. but I am picturing a man with a lawn mower .. .. and fancy adding the sentiment 

"hurry up and get better .. .. .. the grass needs cutting"

that would be cruel wouldn't it?

Mind you there is no way our grass will be able to be cut for quite some time.  We have had quite a lot of standing water from all the rain .. .. .. and although it keeps draining away slowly .. .. the lawns are just like sponges!!  Yuk!!!

But on the happy side .. .. we have cucumbers and tomatoes appearing in the greenhouse and I haven't had to keep going out and watering the runner beans and courgette plants!!  See there is a silver lining to those rain clouds!!

Anyway, here is my share for today

This used:

Image:  Joanna Sheen Messy Rabbit "MR132" Butterfly
Sentiment:  Computer Generated using font "Pass the Chex"
Backing Paper:  Funky Hand
Go Kreate:  Scalloped Squares
ProMarkers and Chalks
Glamour Dust
Self Adhesive Pearls

I printed the sentiment first onto linen cardstock and then stamped the image at the side of it.  Hence the textured look of the image .. .. .. and that is me for today.

Time to start those printers whirring again and start measuring off strips of ribbon!!

It's a busy old House of Hearts at the moment.

Have a lovely evening and I'll catch you again tomorrow.

Lovely card Jules. Such a cute image and that shade of pink is fabulous.
I love the idea of the lawn needs cutting card. Ideal for someone who is not seriously ill, maybe a broken leg or something.If you don`t use it I might pinch it.
