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

I hope your weekend has gone well so far.

Thank you for all your lovely comments on my share of yesterday.  It sounds like quite a few of you would like to have a go at making a similar card.  If you do, and you fancy sharing, I know the magazine would love to see what you make.  You can send a photograph in by email.  (And yes, there are hearts on my commissions too, there were lots on the ribbon).

Can you believe I took our tree down today and when checking which lights no longer worked .. .. they all did!!!  Then they didn't, then they did!!  Typical!!

A speedy post sharing my make tonight:

This used:

Image:  Penny Black "3924K" T.L.C,
Sentiment:  Inkadinkado "96070-M" Kathy Davis Happy Anniversary (without the flower)
Backing Paper:  Nitwits Collections "Always and Forever FQB"
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Diamond Stickles

Catch you again tomorrow with my snippets .. .. and one of my new year resolutions!!

Enjoy the rest of today.
