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 Tuesday!

I hope you are having a good day.

No wedding work for me today .. .. other than handing another order over to a very excited bride.  After this I have been trying really hard to catch up with some of the general orders on my "do list".. .. .. and yet again the day has flown by far too quickly.

I can remember when I was at school a 40 minute lesson seeming to last a lifetime .. .. so how come hours now can disappear in the blink of an eye?!?!?

One of my makes today involves stamp 4 of 6 from Clair .. .. and it isn't a hedgie!!!  Shock horror!!

This used:

Image:  Penny Black "3972K" Frolic
Sentiment:  Pink Petticoat
Backing Papers:  First Edition "J'Adore"
Joy Craft Dies:  Curved Edged Flowers
Woodware Punch:  Not sure what it is called.  Nothing on the stamp or the packaging :-(
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Glamour Dust
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Metallic Cord, Eyelet and Brad from my Stash Box

and that is my share for today.

Nice and early posting from the House of Hearts  .. .. so time to disappear back to the craft pod to do a bit more. I love it that every day here is always so very different.

Enjoy your evening.
