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

Well another rainy day here .. .. .. at least it meant we saved some time on the watering front .. .. and the lawns got to enjoy some more much needed refreshment.

This used:

Woodware Clear Magic Stamp "JGS696"  Ewe & Piggy (for the ewe and sentiment)
Magazine Cover Gift for the floral background and the little bee
Marianne Design Stencil "PS8024" Clouds & Sunburst
Memento Dew Drop Ink Pads:  Pistachio and Lulu Lavender
Distress Ink Pads:  Tumbled Glass & Peeled Paint
Flower Punch
My Trusty Sewing Machine

I am taking my creation over to the As You Like It Challenge where you can choose between creating a scene .. .. or not!  You just have to explain your choice.

I went for "creating a scene", which is something I really enjoy but don't often have time to do.  I especially love doing masking .. .. and this image is just perfect for that..  I love rummaging through my supplies to see what I think will work together.

So that is me for today.

I'll catch you again soon.
