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 Saturday, I hope all is well with everyone and you are enjoying another weekend!  Hopefully a sunny one!

A new sketch made its way into my Rectangular Sketch Library earlier in the week and today I actually had time to play with it and used it to create this:

This used:

Image:  Hero Arts "H2817"Garden Flowers Sketch
Sentiment:  an Ebay purchase without proper packaging but a reference number of PICS066
Backing Papers:  First Edition "J'Adore
Nail Heads
My Trusty Sewing Machine

and Rectangular Sketch Number Four which looks like this (but my flower morphed into a tiny butterfly LOL!):

If anyone would like to use any of my sketches then please feel free do so so.  Both square and a few rectangular sketches are available on the tabs at the top of my blog.  More sketches for both tabs will be being added, but as the rectangular collection is new to my blog, that is the one I am trying to bulk up a little.

Enjoy your weekend everyone.

Catch you again soon.

Great sketch and a pretty image. What I like about sketches is that they can be a good starting point and can be adapted to suit what you are using at the time. Have a good weekend

Hi Jules,

Love the pretty flowers and beautifully coloured. Brilliant sketch Jules and great stitching with your trusty machine.

I seem to have people in my listings of blogs that I have never seen, since Blogger have done all the changes. So not sure that ones I follow are not coming up with posts. So I worry that they think I am not commenting on their blogs.

Love and hugs,
Carol xxxx
