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

Sorry for the no-show last night .. .. .. all rather hectic in the House of Hearts with unexpected visitors and missions to complete and they all threw the normal routine completely out of the window!!  

One day I would love to think I could have lots of posts all ready and waiting .. .. but that seems a mission impossible at the moment.

But never mind .. .. I am here now and here is my little share for today

This used:

Image and Sentiment:  Digistamp Boutique  "A little birdie told me"
Backing Papers:  Pink Petticoat "Fluffy Clouds" and "Little Polka Dots"
Nestabilties:  Classic and Scalloped Circles
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Glamour Dust
Cord and Charm from my stash box

Last month I was lucky to be randomly drawn as the winner of the £15 gift voucher from the Digistamp Boutique challenge blog and I had great fun spending my lovely winnings last Sunday morning.  Gosh that prize went a long, long way and I now have lots more lovely images to play with (so more to follow).

No themes or missions .. .. just showcase anything you have made using a Digistamp Boutique download and you have a chance of winning!!!  Couldn't be easier!!

Time to run .. .. and apologies for my lack of visits at the moment .. .. but I will catch up "I promise".

Have a good day and a lovely weekend.
