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 a good one.

Mine started by finishing off a card I began to make on Wednesday evening .. .. and this morning was the first chance I had to return and finish it.

I am dedicating this card to everyone who needs a good old dollop of love at the moment.  

Quite a quick and easy card to pull together really because I keep a collection of flowers and leaves that I have die-cut from snippets of leftover white and coloured card and I just grab them as and when I need them .. .. or when I fancy a little colouring session.

This used:

Snippets from the Snippet Mountain
Sizzix  Thinlits Dies:  
"664163" Wildflower Stems 1
"664164" Wildflower Stems 2
"662697" Stitched Slots
Sentiment:  Penny Black Clear Stamp Set "30-146" Loads of Love
Diamond Stickles (that you probably can't see)
Pearls, Button and Twine

So that is me for today, and as everything but the base card came from the ever increasing snippet mountain, I am making my way over to enter my card into Pixie's Snippets Playground Challenge, where we are encouraged to use up as many leftovers as possible.  

Enjoy what is left of the evening and have a good weekend too.

Beautiful pocket of posies Jules and I love how you’ve sneaked your heart in between them... your card would cheer anyone up with all the pretty colours.
It’s a dull start here in Somerset this morning but hoping the sun will shine through later....
Enjoy your weekend whatever you’re doing..

A beautiful card Jules, a lovely collection of flowers.
I'm going to see Mum this afternoon, hopefully it will go well and she will understand why I can't give her a hug.
