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

So how was your weekend?

If it was anything like ours the weather just didn't know what it wanted to do.  One minute beautiful sunshine and the next it was bucketing it down with rain.  

I am here today with a card that uses some old Digistamp Boutique downloads.  They are no longer available to purchase as Digistamp Boutique closed its doors quite a while ago now (boo hoo!) but some of the images could be lurking in people's download folders.

This used:

Image:  Digistamp Boutique "Pretty Garden Flower Set"
Sentiment:  Computer Generated 
Backing Papers:  Digistamp Boutique  "Ditsy Rose Papers"
Glossy Accents
Diamond Stickles
My Trusty Sewing Machine

and that is me for today.

There is a world shortage of teeny, tiny cards here in the House of Hearts so I think a few of those might be making an appearance this week.

Pretty card - always interesting to look back at former downloads and make use of them. Easier to search through than 'real' stamps too.

Oh I love this card Jules! The striped papers you used are awesome, loving the colors of them. Love the image too, but how did you print it on the paper without the stripes showing through on the flowers? Love how you colored them and love the tiny purple heart. You are so good at hiding those hearts! I never will complain about seeing teeny tinies! I so love them! Hugs, Brenda
