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.

MUM'S ARE LIKE BUTTONS

Hi Everyone

I hope the week is treating you well  .. .. sorry I am not getting around to visiting you all .. .. I am still ploughing my way through lots of lovely orders .. .. some of which are now centering around Mother's Day which is only a few weeks away!!

So even though I can't spend much time in blogland I can at least show you some of the things I am making that I "can" share .. .. .. and this is one of them which is using a gorgeous new paper pack that the lovely Liz from Pink Petticoat has just released.  All the papers are lovely scrummy shades of yellow and grey!!  Just stunning.  No stamping or colouring needed for this one!!




so this used:

Sentiment:  Pink Petticoat "Mum's are like buttons"
Backing Papers:  Pink Petticoat "Isabelline" (22 gorgeous papers on offer until Friday at £1.99)
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Button, ribbon, cord and charm from My Stash Box

Short and sweet but a quick appearance in-between jobs is better than another "no show" day!

OK time to go and thread diamante buckles onto ribbons!!

Have a good evening everyone.

Love
