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.

ECARTE, SPLITS, PIROUETTE

Hi Everyone

Happy Thursday .. .. I hope your day has been good.

Mine has been nice and productive on the old order/wedding front and then this evening I have been to my lovely Sister's salon and changed the stationery on display in the wedding cabinet and took some more general cards for the stands.  It was lovely to see everything in place all shiny and bright .. .. note to self .. .. must do this more often!! 

Back home now and just time for a quick post of a card I made earlier.  This is for a lady who wants to write her own message inside .. .. hence the lack of a sentiment on the front.




This used:

Image:  Penny Black "2361K" Ecarte, Splits, Pirouette
Backing Papers:  Pink Petticoat "Vintage Stars" and "Pretty Little Hearts"
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
My Trust Sewing Machine
Diamond Stickles
ProMarkers
Ribbon, cord and charm from my stash box

and that is me for today.  I was up at the crack of dawn creating today so I think an early night is in order.

Catch you again tomorrow.

Love

Another cute PB stamp Jules although I cannot imagine it in real life, hedgehogs are just not delicate!! I love the pretty pinks. I have bought some of that ribbon - perhaps to use some and the rest to drool over!! Have a lovely weekend, they say we'll have some sun. Pauline xx
