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 had a good "Good Friday".

Is it just me or has it felt like Saturday today?

Well after me saying I was staying at home for four days .. .. I went out today!!  LOL!!!

Hubby took me to a paper and card warehouse so that I could get some more goodies for my wedding stationery.  Lots of new lovely colours to work with.  Yummy!!!  I could have stayed there all day looking and stroking everything.

Eventually we got home and were super good then and got some jobs done.  All the window and door frames have been washed down at the front and the windows cleaned .. .. .. and well overdue they were too!!  Shame on me!!!

You watch it will rain now tonight or a bird will do its business on them!!

Anyway I have just managed to whip a card together whilst hubby was watching the football. 

Here is my make:

This used:

Image:  Lili of the Valley
Sentiment:  Computer Generated
Papers:  Dovecraft "Back to Basics"
Martha Stewart Punch:  Traditional Scallop
Sizzix Die:  "654995" Stars #2
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Glamour Dust
Button and Cord from the stash box

and that is me for today.

Just waiting for my lovely Sister to land .. .. I was a bit worried I wouldn't have time to finished my make and get it posted before she arrived .. .. .. but phew!!  I made it!!

Catch you again tomorrow.

I know what you mean about the birds after you've been busy cleaning the windows. They know exactly when I cleaned them because they always leave a sort of signature behind on my windows right after I finished :)
