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 are all having a lovely weekend.

The sun went in quite early here so it went a bit "nippy" but even so it has been a great day.  Just a quick post tonight because my little friend is here today and it is rude to sit on the computer whilst you have company .. .. so spit spot .. get on with it Jules.

I have spent the day creating with my little playmate Helen .. .. .. and for the first time in a few weeks I have actually found time to play along with one of my very favourite challenges .. .. Penny Black Saturday.

The theme this week is "Say It With Flowers".

Here is my share ...

This used:

Image:  Penny Black "1736K" How about a Hug!!
Sentiment:  Pink Petticoat
Backing Papers:  Aimee Asher
Martha Stewart Punch:  Daisy
Woodware Punches:  Daisy
Brads and Ribbon from the Stash Box

So that is me for today.

Hubby should soon be back with the Chinese so best finish getting the table laid.

See you tomorrow with some snippet makes.
