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 Thursday .. .. I hope you have had a good day.

Not much sunshine to speak of here .. .. and now a few raindrops .. .. and still a bit nippy!

I am definitely still in my thick winter cardigans whilst crafting away!

Just downloaded a new kit from Pink Petticoat so I could do a few male cards .. .. and just had to have a play.   Lots of different sayings in the kit .. .. but this was my favourite.

This used:

Image, sentiment and backing papers:  Pink Petticoat "Mr Moustache"
Nestabilities:  Deckled Rectangles
Woodware Punch:  Inverted Corner and tiny label
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Button Twine from my stash box

OK time for a clean up campaign .. .. too much crafty mess about the place .. .. and then bath-time.  I am ready for a good hot soak with lots of bubbles.

Enjoy your evening everyone.

Catch you again soon.
