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

Just a very quick post from me tonight .. .. as the party starts in about an hour!!!  Woo hoo!!!

The party peeps will be arriving soon.

Today hasn't involved any crafting .. . other than taking my DIL to see our one and only craft shop in the area.  We both had a little spend .. .. but my DIL had some birthday pennies to spend so her purchases were much more exciting than mine.

Mine were essentials like new B plates for my cuttlebug, a new blush Promarker pen (last of the big spenders) and some more transparent sprink plastic.

My DIL had some Tim Holtz Sizzit dies (which I have ran through my cuttlebug a few times in exchange for her running some of mine through LOL!!) and she had some other lovely goodies too.  That's the beauty of having a birthday.  Guilt free birthday stash.

Anyway a quick share of another make that I did for Anice to launch her new Funky Hand Download "Rainbow Stripey Stripes".

This used: 

Backing Papers:  Funky Hand "Rainbow Stripey Stripes" and "Rainbow Polkadots"
Sentiment and images:  Funky Hand Paper Factory CD "Craft the Year Away"
Brads from the Stash Box

So a very quick post from me.  Sorry I haven't been able to visit to see what you have all been up to .. .. but tomorrow I should be able to catch up.

I hope everyone has had a good Saturday and I am so pleased that Mr Blogger is feeling so much better.  He even returned my tutorial post.  That was kind of him.  Thank you Mr Blogger!!

Catch you tomorrow with my Snippet makes but for now I am off to party!!!!
