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 guess what? 

We didn't do any gardening today!!

After all the hard labour of the last few days we both had a break and did what we enjoy doing best.  I made cards "all day" and scheduled my Funky Hand post for tomorrow.  Hubby went off to buy his football season ticket for next year (before the prices go up), then he did the supermarket shopping .. .. bless .. .. and then he started to paint the swingy sofa thing we have in the garden!!

I think my day was bestest!!  LOL!!!

So here is my share for today, which is based on an old Mojo Monday sketch that I enjoyed using a while back

This used:

Sentiment:  Penny Black "3849E" Birthday Dreams
Backing Papers:  Aimee Asher (4 different papers here pieced together)
Woodware Punches:  Scalloped Oval and Dasies
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Distress Ink:  Frayed Burlap
Brad and ribbon from the stash box

I am around nice and early tomorrow as it is my turn to post my creation over at Get Funky!

See you soon
