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.

PAPERTAKE WEEKLY

Hi Everyone

Hope you are all snuggly and warm!!

What a nippy, nippy day it has been .. .. .. although I have been charging about the place all day so have been well warm.  That is one advantage (or disadvantages) of working downstairs and having all your equipment upstairs.  I wonder how many calories I burnt off today?!?!?!?   LOL!!!

Still on the theme of lazy crafting I am taking advantage of the sketch over at Papertake Weekly and used that to create this little beauty (I love making baby cards).






This used:

Image:  Hero Arts "E3804" Special Delivery
Sentiment:  Pink Petticoat
Backing Papers:  DCWV "Nana's Nursery "Baby Boy"
My Trust Sewing Machine
Pinking Shears
ProMarkers
Button, pearls and bits of ribbon from the Stash Box

and then of course here is the magic sketch .. .. another beauty for the "repeat sometime" folder!!


OK .. .. bath time for me now and then jacket spuds!!!  Oh I know how to live the high life don't I!!  I suppose that will be all the calories I burnt off earlier put back on!!

A few folk are asking about the little flowers I make and how I put them together.  I promise to do a little tutorial on those too .. .. but sorry just didn't have time today.

Have a lovely evening everyone.

Love
