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 Friday!!!

Another weekend looming .. .. woo hoo!!

Whizzing in and out super quick as there is a  lot to be done here over the next couple of weeks.

This creation uses my very favourite heart stamp.

This used:

Image:  Hero Arts "K5298" Blooming Heart
Sentiment:  Hampton Art Stamps "19" Love is in the Air
Backing Paper:  Nitwits "Always and Forever" fqb
WOW Embossing Powder:  Super Fine Bright White
My Trust Sewing Machine
Diamond Stickles
Twine from my stash box and a scrummy button that came in a lovely free pack from Josy Rose when I stocked up on my nail heads and twinkly gems!!

OK that is me for today.

Time to make some serious organisation happen and some dents in the "do list"!!!

Have a lovely weekend everyone.  I hope you find time for a bit of crafting!
