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

Happy Wednesday .. ..  I hope your week is going well.

As promised here is the card I was supposed to have shared on Monday .. .. when I got side-tracked by the "running late" dentist. Thankfully it was only a check up, clean and polish so no sharp intake of breath needed as I didn't need to part with any hard earned cash LOL!  

So here we go with my share of the day .. .. which involved a bit of blending and painting with distress inks.  Very enjoyable!

This used:

Image:  Stampendous "CRR112" Ranunculus Field
Sentiment:  Penny Black "30-176" Sentimental
Distress Inks:  Shabby Shutters, Peeled Paint, Tumbled Glass and Worn Lipstick
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Ribbon from My Crafty Stash Box

and that is me for today. Another "not used enough" stamp gets an airing.

The skies are looking a bit grey here this morning.  I was hopeful of some sunshine to dry a mountain of washing .. .. but the day is young .. .. there is time for improvement!  

Have a good one.

I'm glad you didn't have to part with to much hard earned cash at the dentist Jules. Not my favorite place to go at all for a couple of reason and one of them is the cash part! lol Your card is stunning! I can't believe that you painted those beautiful flowers. I thought you have colored them with Copics, not painted them with distress inks! Wow! You have created a beautiful scene on this card and I am in love with it. Hugs, Brenda
