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

Well another beautiful day has come and nearly gone .. .. I blinked an missed a lot of it!!

I am here just quickly tonight with a special make ready for tomorrow.  I need to get it up here quickly before my lovely Hubby returns home.  He is playing postman for me at the moment.

Tomorrow is our wedding anniversary and here is the make I have made for him.  Poor chap won't have time to look on my blog so he won't spoil the surprise .. .. in fact I'm not sure if he ever does look at my blog!!!?!?!?  

This used:

Heart:  Marianne Design Creatables "LR0159"
Go Kreate:  "160014" Large Frames - Scalloped Squares
Sentiment:  Computer generated using "The King and Queen" font
Distress Ink:  Barn Door
Diamond Stickles
Ribbon and roses from the Stash Box

So tomorrow will be a romantic dinner for two at the dining room table.  That means I need to be bright and early posting here tomorrow or I won't be a popular date!!!

OK .. time to run and get this card in its envelope quickly and then make it look like I have been relaxing in the bath whilst hubby has been out and about!!  LOL!!!

Have a great evening everyone and I hope that everyone's Mr Blogger problems are now sorted.  It sounded like a few of you were pulling your hair out yesterday!!
