My photo
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 what can I say?  Today has been a very strange day in comparison to the beautiful weather of the last few days.

It has been very dull here for most of the day (but windy enough to dry all that washing that accummulated over the holiday break). 

No gardening today.  The only thing I have done outside is go down to the greenhouse to water my little seeds .. .. .. and can you believe that those pesky dandelion seeds have been making their way into my greenhouse and settling in my seed trays!!!  Grrr!!!  Nothing is sacred!!

Anyway, round to today's share .. ..


This used:

Image:  Penny Black "3687K" Light the Night
Sentiment:  Computer Generated
Backing Papers:  Pink Petticoat and Funky Hand
Leone Em Pty Punch:  Ash Branch
Martha Stewart Punch:  Doily Lace
Woodware Punches:  Daisy
Crystal Stickles
Ribbon, black pearls, brad and Charm from the Stash Box

So that is me for today.  There should be no problem with the heart today.

Have a lovely evening and I will see you tomorrow.

Hi Jules, I really like this one, gorgeous image and very pretty colours. Personalised cards are so lovely and this one is just perfect. Great little black touches and cute key charm.

It's been cold here too.

Those dandelions get everywhere!
