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

Well the title to this post could relate to two things .. .. either my share for the day .. .. or myself !!

Both of us are very pale!!    LOL!!

I think I should have perhaps got a bit of that sun we were blessed with earlier this week on my face .. .. but as always I find far better things to do inside.

Here is one of the pale objects from the House of Hearts .. ..

This used:

Image:  Penny Black "3976K" Acrobat
Sentiment:  Hobby Art "CS016D" General Greetings
Backing Papers:  DoCrafts "New Arrival"
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Ribbon and Button from the Stash Box  (what makes you think I bought a lovely bag of button hearts from the NEC? LOL!!!)

So that is my share for today.

Thank you so much to everyone who left good wishes on our Wedding Anniversary yesterday.  We had a lovely evening .. .. perhaps I should switch my computer off and pack my crafty goodies away early more often!!

That said .. .. we did fall asleep on the sofa and woke up to go to bed at around quarter to one in the morning!!  Eeeekk!!!  Not clever when you have a 6.00am alarm.

No packing away early tonight for me though.  I have a project on the go that I need to get finished!!

Have a lovely evening everyone.

Catch you again tomorrow.

Hi Jules, your card may be pale but it is very pretty. Love the image and the colour combo of pink and green is always a winner.
