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 Tuesday.

I hope you have had a good day.   Very nice here weather wise.

No teeny tiny make today, but a card I started yesterday and finished today:

This used:

Nitwits Collection:  Herbal Garden Collection (for the sentiment, papers and bee embellishment)
Sizzix Wildflower Stems #2
Ribbon and Cord

Eyelet & Setter
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Butterfly Die and Pearls
Oh .. .. .. .. and a heart of course

This is a new collection from Nitwits that I spied a couple of weeks ago and kept thinking about (as you do) .. .. I just loved everything about it.  Then at the weekend they had their "40% off Fall Sale" and I knew exactly which set I wanted to order.  As it was such a good price I went for the bundled package .. .. so lots of potential going forward.

That is me for today.

Catch you again soon.

What a stunning card Jules! Nitwit has some beautiful collections and this is definitely one of them. I love getting their bundle collections, you get a good amount for your money. The sentiment is so cool, and at first I had to go and see what you used because I almost thought you typed it yourself! lol Love the bee and the cute butterflies. Always love their papers, such stunning papers to work with and you picked some beautiful ones. I love the dies you used too, they are so pretty! I love everything about this card my friend!!! You have showcased this Nitwit collection perfectly! Hugs, Brenda
