A very warm welcome to my teeny, tiny part of the huge world of blogging. This is where I am hoping to 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 always 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.

Good Evening everyone

I hope you are well. I will apologise now as this post is going to be a long one!!!!!! LOL!!!

I have a quick share and then I have an award to accept that involves answering a massive 35 questions (thank you Shirley and Sally for making me rack my brains!!).

First my little creation though:

This used:

Image: Digistamp Boutique "Evie & Toadstool"
Backing Paper: Funky Fairys "Loving it Simple Freebie" Download (very old)
Sentiment: Pink Petticoat "Girly Curly Sentiments"
Glamour Dust
Diamond Stickles
Gems and ribbon from my stash box

Next I am around to my award.

I need to answer the following 35 questions in order to accept this award - I think they are supposed to be one word answers really - but I just know before I start I won't be able to do this. Neither will I be able to pass the award on to others - but I would love it if anyone decided to take it to their blog and have a go at answering. Please let me know if you do so that I can read your answers.
