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

A bit later tonight .. .. sorry!!  The time has just flown today without me noticing.

A very quick share using an image that I had already coloured whilst at my Mum's one week and had popped in a box "for future use".   In fact there are probably another three images just the same as this in the box LOL!!  It is such a lovely image because it can be used for so many things, Birthdays, Mother's Day, Get Well Soon, Thank You, Sorry I'm Late .. .. and probably a few other things I haven't even thought of!!

This used:

Image:  Penny Black "1444K" Hedgehog Bouquet
Sentiment:  Computer Generated
Backing Papers:  Aimee Asher
Woodware Punches:  Daisy
Leone Em Pty Punch: Ash Branch
Martha Stewart Punch:  Daisy
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Diamond Stickles
Brads and Ribbon from the Stash Box

A nice quick and simple one which is brilliant whilst time is short.

Today sees the launch of a new challenge over at Get Funky! where my fabby team mate Lou wants us to "Zing into Spring".  If you click here you will arrive at the challenge blog where all the rules are .. .. the winner at the end of the challenge being able to pick a free download of your choice!!!  What better reason to enter?!?!

Part of the rules are that you have to use a Funky Hand product on your creation .. .. but if you haven't got one yet then don't worry because Anice has provided another freebie for you to use (It is gorgeous.  All the ladies on the DT fell instantly in love with it).  You will find that on the challenge blog too .. .. so off you go!!!

Catch you again tomorrow.

Why is it that when I get an hour to myself the internet decides to go on a go slow - so each comment takes nearly 5 mins. Grr. Love the soft colours on this pretty card - super image - I can see why you like it so much.
