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

Well a bit of a dull day weather wise here .. .. but certainly not dull on the old work front .. .. all super duper busy!!!  Yay!!!

I am trying to rattle my way through a mountain of orders but as quick as I cross them off they get replaced .. .. but hey!!!  I'm not complaining!!!!

Whilst putting all my dies back into their rightful places my Sewing Edge die jumped out at me as being a tad neglected so I used it for my share for today.

This used:

Backing Papers:  DCWV "Citrus Stack"
Sentiment:  Computer Generated using fong Zipty Do
Sizzix Die:  "657829" Sewing Edge
Nestabilities:  Big Scalloped Ovals
Woodware Punch:  Super small daisy
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Ribbon, thread, buttons and pearls from my Stash Box

and that is me blogwise for today.

A little earlier than normal .. .. but that doesn't mean I have finished.  Still loads more to do before I can class the day as a success LOL!!!

Have a lovely evening everyone.

Good morning Jules,
Fantastic card, love the idea of that Die making a really different layout.
Glad you are keeping busy but glad you still have time to share your beautiful cards with us.
Do the Sizzex Dies work with the GC or cuttlebug???
Have a Great Day

Patricia. xx

Patricia said...

Hello again, thank you for the info. Must have a look at Sizzex Dies.
My very first Die cutter was Sizzex I could hardly lift it, it was so heavy with a pump style handle.
Thank you

Patricia xx
