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.

PENNY BLACK SATURDAY

Hi Everyone

Well .. .. what makes you think the House of Hearts Craft Pod was opened up bright and early today?

As normal my Saturday started with a check on the Penny Black Saturday challenge for the week.

Sadly I haven't taken part for a few weeks (sorry ladies) .. .. but today I have made amends.

The challenge this week is to use "No Patterned Papers".  Well that speeded things up a bit and took some of the decisions away didn't it!!

Here is my creation




This used:

Image:  Penny Black "1644L" Say Cheesecake
Sentiment:  Computer Generated using Font "Marcello Handwriting"
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder:  "Numbers"
Martha Stewart Punch:  Embossed Zig Zag
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
ProMarkers
Ribbon from the Stash Box

Busy day here today so I will love you and leave you, and catch you again tomorrow.

Love

Hello Jules,

The embossing folder makes a perfect backdrop for your sweet PB mice and blue and brown is a colour combo I always think works so well.

Have a good weekend.
