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

I hope you are all having a good Good Friday!!!

After yesterday feeling like Friday .. .. today feels like Saturday .. .. especially with there being so much football on the TV.

Just a quick share tonight of one of my favourite types of cards to make .. .. a new baby card.  

There will be no trouble in you finding a heart tonight.  Baby cards need lots of hearts because babies need lots of love .. .. though I would imagine cuddling a baby hedgehog might be a little difficult and painful  LOL!!!!!

This used:

Image:  Penny Black "2073" Baby Hammock
Backing Papers:  Pink Petticoat
Nestabilities:  Classic Circles and Scalloped Circles
Glamour Dust
Ribbon and Pearls from the Stash Box

So that is me for tonight .. .. we have been doing a bit of gadding about today so time for me to have a little catch up on today's quota for today on my "do list".  I can't afford to fall behind or I will pay for it another day!!

Have a lovely evening everyone and a great Easter break.

Hi Jules, Cute card - love the hedgehog. My late mother always said that babies bring their own love ... a bit optimistic perhaps, but true of all the babies in our family :) Been doing a bit of gadding about too, for some little Easter necessities and ink cartridges for the printer - couldn't live without that! Tomorrow is Saturday - don't go thinking it's Sunday :)) Elizabeth x

Hi Jules, Long time no visit I know but just stealing an hour (and managing to stay awake, lol) for a long overdue hop. I've been waaaayyy back on your gorgeous makes and I see you are still keeping the standard right up there at the top with your beautiful creations.

Love the elegant wedding makes and I can imagine how proud you must be of them.

Todays share is sooo pretty too.

Lots of Love
Lesley Xx
