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.

Hi Everyone

I hope you have all seen a bit of sunshine today.  It took a while to appear here but was glorious when it did. 

The sad part is that by mid afternoon I have to block some of it out  .. .. the sun shines straight into my craft pod and stops me from seeing properly .. .. shame .. .. but it has to be done!!!

Here is my favourite make of the day:

This used:

Image:  Penny Black "2243K" Bee Costume
Backing Papers:  Aimee Asher
Sentiment:  Pink Petticoat
Woodware Punches:  Daisy
Leone Em Pty Punch: Ash Branch
Glamour Dust
Diamond Stickles

A nice bright and breezy one to match the weather.  We are promised the same for tomorrow .. .. but I won't mention the rest of the week LOL!!.

I have my fingers and toes tightly crossed that I can come and visit tonight but can you believe that my lovely Hubby is "still" doing up-dates on my laptop!!! 

My hero was working on it until around 11.30pm last night and has come home from work and set it updating again.  Thank goodness we aren't in the old dial-up days .. .. it would be costing a fortune and be dropping out every 10 minutes or so!!  Tee hee!!!  So there is a silver lining to be found amongst my impatience.

Hubby felt it shouldn't take too long now so hopefully by the time I have had my bath and eaten I can then settle into a good old blog hop!!  Oh I do hope so .. .. I am missing seeing what you have all been up to.

Have a good evening everyone.  See you sooooonnn ... I hope!!
