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

Happy Friday!!

I hope you have had a good day and are all ready for a lovely weekend.

There haven't been many crafty pennies to spare in the House of Hearts for general craft goodies recently .. .. they have disappeared in the wedding stationery direction (and car insurance).

But surprise, surprise my car insurance came through cheaper than last year .. .. after all the reports on the radio I was expecting it to have gone up quite a bit .. .. but no.  I have been lucky.

So to celebrate I treated myself to the new papers from Pink Petticoat .. . I just had to have them .. .. and you will know exactly why once you see them:

This used:

Backing Papers:  Pink Petticoat "Waterfall Hearts"
Sentiment:  Elzybells (sadly no longer trading .. . boo hoo!!)
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder:  Roses
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Woodware Punch:  Very Small Daisy
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Distress Ink
Ribbon and cord from my Stash Box

I just know these papers are going to get lots and lots of use.

So that is me for today.  

If you haven't been able to find the heart today then there is a "serious" problem LOL!!

Enjoy your weekend everyone.
