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.

BIRTHDAY CALORIES

Hi Everyone

Is it just me or does today feel like Friday to anyone else?

Must be the thought of the Easter break.

A share today featuring one of my favourite little mice of all time .. .. Henry Mouse!!





This used:

Image:  Whiff of Joy "Henry With Cake"
Sentiment:  Stampendous "CRE202" Cling Birthday Calories
Backing Papers:  Nitwits (love the brown stitched heart paper as you can probably tell from the number of times I use it LOL!!)
Nestabilities:  Classic Circle and Scalloped Circles
My Trusty Sewing Machine
ProMarkers
Chalks
Glamour Dust (though you can hardly see it)
Ribbon and Pearls from the Stash Box

Sorry about yesterday's heart.  It gave a few people a bit of a headache .. .. but lots of you did find it without any trouble.  Well done!!!

But for those that didn't find it .. .. here is the reveal .. ..


it was hiding all the time on the middle button!!

No such problems tonight though .. .. lots of hearts to be found!!

Have a lovely Easter break everyone .. .. I hope not too many of you are having to work.

Love
