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.

MARSHMALLOW

Hi Everyone

Well today has been beautiful here weather wise .. .. I have even managed to dry some washing outside and it smells gorgeous!!  (The down side being I have now put clothes into what was an empty ironing basket .. .. boo hoo!!).

I was hoping to have taken part in Sandra's Rudolph Day Challenge this week .. .. but sadly time just hasn't allowed it. Sorry Sandra :-(   

Even this morning I was hopeful I might manage a last minute appearance but like every other day in the House of Hearts I expect far too much of myself.  The day has flown by on Mother's Day makes, orders and wedding work.  We also have another wedding fayre happening on Sunday and I still want to do some new samples for that too.  

So somehow with everything else that is going on Christmas just had to wait .. .. and I consoled myself with the thought that there are still 300 sleeps to go until the special day .. . well that is the number according to the fabby little calculator here.  I don't know about you but I always count things in "sleeps" LOL!!!

Currently Mothering Sunday makes have to be high on my list at the moment (10 sleeps) so here is one of my Mothering Sunday creations:




This used:

Sentiment:  Pink Petticoat "Lovely Mum Sentiments"
Backing Papers:  Pink Petticoat "Marshmallow Paper Pack" (New this week and offer until Sunday)
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
My Trust Sewing Machine
Diamond Stickles (though you probably can't see it)
Ribbons from my stash box

So there we go with my share for today.  There shouldn't be any problems with the heart tonight .. .. but it would appear that a few of you struggled last night .. .. but I do think I have been being just a tad too kind recently LOL!!!

Anyway, there were lots of hearts would you believe .. .. and here are just a few of them on the top of some of the cupcakes.


Easy when you know where!

Have a lovely evening everyone.

Love

Hi Jules- hang on while I put my magnifying glass down!! Those microscopic hearts tee hee!!

One last thing - where did you get your magic stickle applicator? xx
