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

What a gorgeous day .. .. just perfect for crafting.

Bright but no blinding sunshine flooding into the old craft pod.  Just what I like!!

I have been waiting to colour this gorgeous image for quite a while .. .. and today was the day I treated myself to a quick colouring session.

This used:
Image:  Teddy Bo
Backing Papers and Sentiment:  Pink Petticoat
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Cuttlebug Die:  Flower
ProMarkers (and chalk for the cheeks)
Glamour Dust
Crystal Stickles
X-Cut Punch:  Corner Rounder
Ribbon, Cord and Brad from the Stash Box

I can't believe it is nearly 6.00pm and still light .. .. oh I love the start of Spring and the promise of Summer to come.

I'll catch you again tomorrow.  

Off to cut out some favour boxes now ready to take with me to my Mum's tomorrow!  I can stick them together whilst we have a good old natter!!!

Have a lovely evening.

What a cutie, Jules. She's certainly made me smile and I love your colouring. The light you've created on her sleeve is amazing.
The sun got out here about 2pm and it's been a lovely afternoon, but very misty this morning. I may even cut the grass if it is nice tomorrow!!
