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.

I WOULD HAVE BEEN EARLIER BUT .. .. ..

Tee hee!!

I would have been earlier but hubby was in the bedroom !!!

... "and ?" ...

I hear you cry .. ..

Well I needed ribbons for adding to my card .. .. .. and I have moved those on reels into a drawer in our bedroom .. .. .. and hubby doesn't know yet.

Yes .. .. yet another room the crafty goodness is starting to take over!!  LOL!!!  I'll cop it!!!

So here is my later than intended make




Ooops .. .. I can see my reflection in the charm.  Oh well .. nothing I can do about that!!

This used:

Backing Paper:  Hot Off The Press "Classic Creative Pack"
Sentiment:  Computer Generated
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Diamond Stickles
Lace, Ribbons, |Pearls, Cord and Charm from the Stash Box

I think this little beauty is going to have to go into a box as it would give an envelope a bit of torture treatment.

Sorry if you like searching for the hearts .. .. you can hardly hide them on valentine makes can you?

Enjoy what is left of the evening and have a fabby weekend everyone.

Love
