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

Hope you are all having a good weekend.

Still pretty nippy here .. .. but no snow .. .. so that is a plus!

My share tonight is for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge where the theme this week is "Love and Kisses" .. .. quite a hard one for me but I have done my best LOL!!!

Here is my creation

This used:

Image:  Penny Black "4030K" The Park Bench Affair
Sentiment:  Funky Hand "Love 'n' That"
Backing Papers:  Pink Petticoat
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
My Trust Sewing Machine

and that is me for today.

Hubby and I are off out in a bit to celebrate Valentine's early!!  Much nicer when you don't have to get up early the next day (plus we can celebrate again on Tuesday!!).  Tee hee!!

So, why do I think I should change my name?

Well I registered with a local hotel a few weeks ago to do a wedding fayre with them.  I think they must have put me into their database because now I keep getting sent emails of special deals and events they have coming up.

They must have entered me into the system as "Always With A Heart" .. .. which is the name I booked the wedding fayre table under .. .. .. and now I keep getting emails addressed to "Mrs Heart"  LOL!!!

Mmmm..... wonder if hubby would consider us changing our names .. .. I somehow think not!!

Have a great evening everyone.

Must dash and get ready .. .. .. but we are back early so hopefully I will get chance to catch up with your lovely blogs whilst hubby catches up on the football .. .. again!!!!

Hi Jules, love the card, a great colour scheme and the image is just adorable. Your story about your possible name change did make me smile! I have a feeling you might now and forever more in Blogland be known as Mrs Heart, and how appropriate that would be!

Sorry I haven't been able to do much bloghopping lately, but I'm slowly catching up. Hope you're ok, will be in touch, Love, Lynne x
