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

I hope you have had a good day.

Mine has involved meeting another lovely "happy couple" .. .. hopefully I am going to come up with some creations they will love.

I then spent some time with Mum and arrived back late to make my final male card for this week .. .. pretty, pretty tomorrow .. .. yay!!!

This used:

Image:  Penny Black "2894J" Missed You!
Sentiment:  Lili of the Valley
Backing Papers:  DCWV "Citrus Stack"
Sizzix Die:  Grass
Nestabilities:  Eyelet Circles
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Cord from the Stash Box

Sorry only two pictures tonight.  The third was a tad wonky .. .. my own fault for having so many boxes stacked in front of my photo taking area.  I ended up taking pictures straggled across them.  David Bailey would not be impressed with me .. .. well even I'm not impressed with me!!!

So .. .. note to self .. .. tomorrow have a good clear up campaign and get the world organised and also  ... .. put the memory card for the camera somewhere where I can find it straight away .. .. instead of wasting 10 minutes searching for it .. .. then try and cross about 20 things of the do list !!!!   Eeekkk!!!

Catch you tomorrow in pretty, pretty mode!

Looking forward to your pretty pretty make tomorrow.
