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

Another day nearly done and dusted!!

I have spent some of today decorating a post box for a "happy couple" that will be having their special day soon!!  Awwww!!!

A different style to what I have decorated before and it involved me having to cut a hole for posting cards and good wishes through.  I have been dreading cutting this hole since I took delivery of the box .. .. but why I have no idea.  Silly me!

New scalpel in hand and lots of measuring and marking and all was good.   Phew!!!

The post box isn't for sharing of course but my baby card for the day is:

This used:

Image:  Stampendous! "XXD003" Baby's Bath
Sentiment:  Stampendous!  "F181" Babies Touch
Backing Papers:  Pink Petticoat
Nestabilities:  Circles and Scalloped Circles
My Trusty Sewing Machine
ProMarkers and Chalk
Ribbon, shaped eyelets and pearls from the Stash Box

I have had these little shaped eyelets for ages and love them to bits .. .. but have finally decided they need to be used.  It isn't as if there aren't loads of them and in lots of different shapes too!! LOL!!

Have a lovely evening everyone.

Off to do a bit more to the post box now.
