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 you have enjoyed your Saturday.

Definitely no bees in our garden today .. .. .. it has been far too wet.   But we do have two robins who have nested under our pergola and we have seen them lots today.  No doubt the rain has brought lots of worms to the surface for them.

But even if there were any bees they wouldn't look like this cute image:

This used:

Image: Penny Black "2243K" Bee Costume
Sentiment:  Computer Generated using font Aracne Condensed Regular
Backing Papers:  Nitwit Collections "Wildflower Collection"
Martha Stewart Punch:  Daisy Edge Punch
Spellbinders Nestabilities:  Classic Circle and Scallop Circle
Nail Heads
Crystal Glamour Dust
My Trusty Sewing Machine

I am going to take my creation over to the "Sweet Stampin'" Challenge where this week the theme is "Things with Wings" .. .. .. bet they never expected a Cat to make an appearance LOL!!

Take care everyone, enjoy the rest of your weekend and thank you for calling by.

Love this, it's such a great image and those papers compliment it perfectly.
No robins for us but hopefully our blue-tits will come back and nest with us soon.

Oh I just love this image Jules and your layout is fabulous, gorgeous papers too.
There have been really big bumble bees around this year, I don't know what that means though.
Yes the result was what we were hoping for, it's going to be an interesting five years ahead. Enjoy your weekend, Kate x

Ha, ha, a "bee-cat", so cute, and a very lovely card ! It's Mother's Day in Belgium, but very crazy weather : 25° C, sunshine, and then suddenly thunder and hail ! A very strange Spring this year... I have bees in the garden, with my "bee-hotel", and also lots of birds, because I feed them. Hugs,Enny

Sarah said...

What a fun card Jules, cute bee!! Such pretty papers too. What a treat to have a robin nest in your garden. Much nicer viweing than TV!! We put up a couple of nesting boxes in the hope that our resident robins would use one but it clearly wasn't to their liking and both remain empty...maybe next year!! xx

Hi Jules,

A very cute, fun card!! Love the detail and the papers are brilliant.

Has been dry here today but heavy rain started about 7 pm. Stopped now until due tomorrow.

Love and hugs,

Gorgeous card with that cute bee-cat, it reminds me I do have some stamp imprints of it. It’s so beautifully coloured, love it. Today it was a real summer day here and the bees were already there.
Gr, Annie
