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.

SKETCH N STASH CHALLENGE 112

Hi Everyone

Happy Monday!!!

I love the start of a new week .. .. it makes me feel like I have oodles of time to fit everything in I want to do .. .. but somehow the week just disappears in a puff of smoke.  Yes, I will have got lots done .. .. but never enough!!  I am never satisfied.

Even if by some miracle I was ever able to clear my very long do list I would be able to click to my "one day I want to try" list.   I will never be short of something to do!!!

I must be so annoying to live with .. .. but that is just tough .. .. I have my good points too (if you look deep enough)!!!!  LOL!!!

Anyway, today's share is for the Sketch N Stash Challenge where they have provided a lovely sketch for us to follow with the option of doing some distressing too.  They also want you to mention what "new" or "neglected" stash you have used on your creation.

Well I can give examples for both.  The backing papers were new at the weekend (because there was a 34% off sale on at Nitwits and it would be rude not to take advantage) and my neglected piece of stash is my Tim Holtz distressing tool.  Though it is only neglected because I always struggle to find it.  So today I have given it its own special place in the craft pod in the hope I can find it straight away next time I decide to play with it.

So here is my make:




This used:

Image and Sentiment:  LOTV
Backing Papers:  Nitwits "With This Ring Too"  (whilst linking I noticed the sale is still on at the mo)
My Trust Sewing Machine
ProMarkers and Chalk
Adirondack Lights:  Pink Sherbet
Diamond Stickles
Glamour Dust
Ribbon, flower and pearls from my stash box

and if you fancy playing along here is the sketch I followed


Enjoy your Monday everyone.  Time for me to settle into making more wedding samples for interested "happy couples" and then a batch of favour boxes.

Catch you again soon

Love
