My photo
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 all had a good weekend and Monday has been kind to you.

Here tonight with another of the images I coloured in the garden last week:

This used:

Image:  LOTV digital image "Wallpaper Paste"
Sentiment:  Computer Generated using Fonts "Aracne Condensed Regular" and "Vanilla Shot"
Backing Paper:  Nitwit Collection "Cherish"
My Trusty Sewing Machine

I must admit that little chappie looks quite pleased and excited about doing a bit of decorating .. .. .. .. I don't remember Mr Heart EVER being eager about decorating!  LOL!!

I'll hopefully catch you again soon.

A fabulous card Jules, another super image - he does look quite excited doesn't he, my hubby always starts decorating with great enthusiasm but it soon disappears as he plods along - I get a man in now, it's much quicker!

A lovely card Jules. I've just shown Mr B the picture (he retired last month) and his comment was 'how true'!
