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

Late but here with a card that fits nicely into the Penny Black Saturday challenge where they would like to see pearls and lace.

This used:

Image:  Penny Black "3976K" Acrobat
Sentiment:  Papermania "PMA 10071"
Backing Papers:  Cuddly Buddly
Diamond Stickles
Lace, ribbon and pearls from the Stash Box

So how did my day go?

Well, my lovely Sis arrived bright and early and we set up our tables with what we had produced so far and decided what else we needed to do .. .. and also how much lighting we needing to invest in.  Once decided it was off to IKEA.

We found exactly what we wanted and rushed home to add everything to our display and we were well chuffed.  We still have lots to do but feel we have made a good leap forward today.

The day has flown away with me and production has been very sparse .. .. but there is a limit as to what you can fit into a day .. .. .. and I did do an hour of ironing!!

Must go and get my bath now whilst the jacket spuds are cooking.  Good job Hubby is at a football meeting for a bit longer yet!!!

Enjoy the rest of your evening.
