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 the first day of your weekend has gone well.

Too hot for me to be out there in the great outdoor, so I have been in my little craft pod for a good bit of the day and this was one of my creations:

This used: 

Stampin' Up Bird Bird Builder Punch
Backing Paper:  The Works
Sentiment:  Computer Generated using font "Aracne Condensed Regular"
X-Cut Flower Punch and Heart Punch
Nail Heads
My Trusty Sewing Machine

and that is me for today.

I hope everyone has had a good day and I wish you a good one tomorrow too.

I'm sure there isn't a prize for guessing what you used on this card - I have that bird punch and also the paper pad from The Works as well as the tiny flower punch. Great idea to do appropriately coloured wings on the little birds! Another hot day forecast for today so try to stay cool.

This card is just lovely Jules! I love how you have used these punched birds. You have shaded and just brought them to life so well. Love too how you did the branches and little flowers. So sweet, a perfect anniversary card! Just might have to CASE this one from you. Hope you had a lovely weekend, it was hot here too and will continue to be. Sounds like pool time is in order. lol Hugs, Brenda

Super card, those little birds are so cute and a great use of the wood effect paper, I find those really hard to use but you have cracked it here.
