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 thought I wasn't going to get here tonight!!

I have had a lovely day today totally submerged  in Wedding Stationery samples .. .. .. nearly running out of time to make something I was able to share here.

So tonight is just a quick and simple make - thank goodness for my "already coloured and ready to do something with drawer"  LOL!!!

Here is my share

This used:

Image:  Penny Black "2098H" Bubble of Joy!
Sentiment: Hobby Art Clear "CS016D" General Greetings
Backing Papers: Funky Hand Download "Rainbow Polkadots"  (Loving these)
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Diamond Stickles
Cord from The Stash Box

and that is me for today!!

You will notice that there is actually a heart on today's card.  Yesterday one of my snippets made it to my blog without one!!! Shock horror!!

My lovely hubby was totally disgusted and suggested I change my blog to "Nearly Always With a Heart" .. .. cheeky monkey!!

I found the little scoundrel heart on my desk and ended up adding it and changing my photograph this morning!!  It does help if you actually glue them on!!

I didn't notice but my lovely blog pal Katina did (and she was the only one!!).  Katina is fairly new to my blog so probably doesn't know that sometimes I deliberately don't add a heart and the first person to spot there isn't one gets a little prize.

This was actually an accident but I still think you deserve a prize Katina .. .. if only for being so diligent as to actually look for them LOL!!!

If you email me your address a little package will wend its way to you with my love and thanks.

See you again tomorrow.  Hopefully a little earlier.

It's a gorgeous image , Jules. I have a few very old Penny Black images but they are all flowers - must invest in some of the more modern 'cutie' type images. ( More stuff for my wish list.).
