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

I fancied having a go at a handbag shaped card today .. .. and I must admit I am really pleased with the result.

Of course it doesn't want to fit into any standard sized envelope but now I have my scor-pal that won't be a problem. 

I did a quick envelope out of copy paper before I embellished my little card just to make sure I wasn't going to be stuck with a card that didn't fit an envelope LOL!!!

This used:

Papers: DCWV Latte Stack
Nestabilities: Standard Circles Large, Classic Scalloped Circles Large (with a bit chopped off!!)
Sentiment: Elzybells
X-Cut Punches: Flowers
Button, Gems and Cord from the stash box

The template I used came from here.

I really love the finished look and think I am going to make a few more in different colours.

Can't wait for my lovely Sis to see it.  She isn't the only one that can make handbags!!  Tee hee!!

So it is a short and sweet post from me today as I am a bit of a busy bee and have a lot to do .. .. .. but I must just report that I had a lovely snuggly sleep last night with the extra duvet width!!

Catch you again tomorrow
