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

Here I am with yet another new home card.  Not that I know anyone who is moving home .. .. it is just that my card stocks are a bit low on them.  But don't worry I will have something different tomorrow).

So here is my share for today .. ..

This used:

Image and Sentiment:  Pink Petticoat  (edited .. .. apparently a few of you are looking for the image over at Pink Petticoat .. .. you can find it here as part of a little set)
Backing Paper:  Aimee Asher
Leone Em Pty Punch:  Ash Branch
Woodware Punch:  Circle (I then cut this into a spiral and wind it up to make the rose flower)
My trust sewing machine
Scalloped edge is a blade that fits to my guillotine
Ribbon, lace, gems and pearls from the stash box

I hope you likey, likey!!!

It is my turn to cook this evening so I have chicken curry on the go .. .. .. nicely planned so that it is Hubby's turn to cook tomorrow when it is The Apprentice night!!!   You see I am a bit crafty in more ways than one!!!

I hope you have all had a good day.  We have had quite a bit of rain but it is nice now.  I hope it is this good for my lovely Sis at the Manchester Take That concert as she is outdoors!!!

She has been so excited today bless her!!  She gained the ticket as a last minute thing as one of her daughter's mates had to drop out for some reason. 

Can't wait to hear all about it!!

Have a great evening everyone.  I am off to add some more goodies to the curry.

See you tomorrow.
