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 Friday, happy weekend and what I hope will be a happy March too!

I can't believe we are already nearly a week into another sparkly new month!!

I'm not liking that my days are disappearing so quickly .. .. but clearly that is what happens when you are keeping your head down and trying to get lots of work done.

But the hard work does mean that everything is finished and ready for picking up this weekend so I had a play with a stamp that has been on my "one day I would like" list for ages .. .. .. and it finally dropped through my letterbox yesterday!

.. .. .. and this is what I did with it .. ..

This used:

Image:  Hobby Art:   CS124D - March Hares
Sentiment:  Computer Generated using font "2peas barefoot professor"
Marianne Design Mask Stencil PS8024 - Clouds & Sunburst
Distress Inks:  Tumbled Glass and Peeled Paint
Dewdrop Memento Ink Pads:  Bamboo Leaves, Sweet Plum and Peanut Brittle
My Trusty Sewing Machine

and that is me for today.

Hopefully I will have some crafty makes to share with you over the weekend.

OMGosh Jules, I am so loving this card!!! I can see why you wanted this stamp, this bunny is adorable! I love the background you created for him, it looks amazing. Your beautiful sky, that green grass with the greenery, all just perfect for this little bunny to hide out in. So cute is the sentiment too. Love, love, love! Yes, the month is already flying by and I'm not even busy like you are. lol Glad you had time to play with this cutie pie! Hugs, Brenda

Sorry Jules, I thought I had left a comment, but I'm not seeing it. So here I go again! I am in love with this card! I can see why you wanted this little guy in your stash, he is simply adorable. I love your beautiful sky and your grassy area with the "ferns" and "grasses" popping up. And then there is your bunny with that amazing expression-OMGosh, I just love him! I don't know how March is flying by already but it is and I'm not as busy as you are! Seems as though life is flying by at warp speed anymore. Glad you got your work done and had some play time Jules, cause you need to have a little play time to tackle all that work you do! Hugs, Brenda

Jules, I love your little bunny and it reminds me of two little bunnies that I have been watching every morning. I'm guessing that there will be more little bunnies soon. I am so happy that Spring has sprung! Happy Easter. Thank you for sharing your sweet, sweet card.
