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 day has been good.  Beautiful sunshine here today and yesterday .. .. but rumours from the weather man that we are in for very heavy rain tomorrow!!  

Doesn't Mother Nature know that she has already filled my water butts and they are nearly overflowing!!!

Well .. .. .. after a few days of full on wedding work I have had chance to do some much needed general cards.  

So, here is my share for today:


 This used:

Image:  The ever faithful Penny Black "3377K" Whispers
Sentiment:  Pink Petticoat
Backing Papers:  First Edition Paper "Boho Chic"
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads  (see my sticky post above if you fancy winning a prize from Josy Rose)
Diamond Stickles
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Button and ribbon from the stash box

I am also going to enter my card into the Papertake Weekly Challenge where they are celebrating being 5 (wow!!) and the theme is "anything goes".  

Have a good evening everyone.

I think the rain is coming during the night now and tomorrow should be OK, fingers crossed anyway. They have even sort of promised a nice weekend unless you live on the South coast!!!
Love the colours of the flowers on your card, Jules. I've been playing with orange today, but not as successfully as this.
Hugs Lisax

Gorgeous card Jules. That bp is very pretty and the flower stamp takes paper piecing so well. Been a lovely day here today but raining now. Good job I got the grass cut this afternoon.
