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 your Tuesday has been good.

Mine has flown by with wedding work .. .. and for a moment I thought I wasn't going to get anything made to share with you .. .. but I managed it in the end .. .. just!!

Only a quick and simple make .. .. but I did warn you that this might be the theme of the week LOL!!!

So here we go:

This used:

Image:  Pink Petticoat "Simply Delightful"
Sentiment:  Computer Generated using font "2Peas Squish"
Backing Papers:  Papermania "Chatsworth Vintage Collection"  love these papers but some are now in short supply :-(
Martha Stewart Punch:  Lace Heart
My Trust Sewing Machine
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Ribbon, Charm and Gems from the Stash Box

and that is me for tonight.  I bet black chandeliers take a lot of keeping clean!!!

Not sure I will make it here tomorrow  .. .. but we shall see.  Miracles do sometimes happen LOL!!

Have a good rest of the evening.
