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 all had a good day.

I came to finishing off my share for the day and just couldn't decide how I wanted to finish it .. .. so tonight you get to see half a creation .. ..LOL!!!

Hopefully tomorrow you will see it complete if I can come up with what I think it needs.  I don't like crafting in the dark, which is what I seem to have done since mid afternoon today!!  Electric lights seem to do funny things to the colours.  I always like my cards much better in bright daylight.

So here is my "half card" .. .. using what I think is my favourite stamp purchase of the year.  Though you are probably sick of seeing him now!!!

Isn't he cute ?!!!  I just lurve him!!!!

Right time to have a bit of supper and then off to the land of nod .. .. it is going to be one of those nights where you lie in bed listening to the rain lashing onto the window!!

It has rained really heavy all evening!  Still that is better than really heavy snow!!!

Catch you tomorrow

Your title made me think he was going to be drinking a beer!!! Looks like a great half card.

So dark here too...we will be driving home today after doing to and from school walks and Mum and Dad are delayed now...looks like we are here till 5ish...we will be driving home in the pitch dark.

The only benefit will be I brought my camera and will be able to get a picture of the gorgeous lit up house at the end of our roundabout.

I know what you mean about electric lighting. You really can't rely on it when choosing colours. I'll miss the 'other half' of your card as I'm going afmily visiting tomorrow - I'll try to catch it Sunday night.
Have a great weekend.
Beryl xx
