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

Sorry I am late .. .. it has been one of those days where I have chased my tail all day.

But I am pleased with what I have achieved so that's good.

My share today is number 2 in my weddings and anniversary makes .. .. and this one could do for either really.

This used:

Card Base:  Cut from Sizzix Die "Scallop #3"
Backing papers:  GCD Studios "Ella Blue"
Sentiment:  Hampton Art "10 - Love Is In The Air"
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Ribbons, Charm, Pearls and Gems from the Stash Box
Not sure who made the butterfly punch .. .. will have to investigate further.

I have had the Sizzix Die for the card base for quite a while now .. .. I bought it cheap a while ago but have never been able to find any envelopes that fit nicely.

But now I have my Scor-Pal there is no excuse .. .. it only takes a few minutes to make an envelope and you can do it with matching paper which is nice.  (Though I won't be wasting my Ella Blue papers on envelopes that's for sure!! LOL!!).

Well I hope you like it and feel it was worth waiting for.

Hubby is watching football at the moment and is well happy with how things are going .. .. come on England!!!

Catch you tomorrow
