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.

BIRTHDAY CANDLE BIRDBRAIN

Hi Everyone

A scheduled post from me today as I am nicely up to my neck with wedding ribbons and bling and wanted to hit the ground running  ... .. another head down and get on with it day!!

A fun card  using an image from a new digital place I came across the other day  .. .. I only bought one image just in case I wasn't happy with how they looked once printed out etc.  But they are fabby!!!  I feel sure this Birdbrain character is going to be a regular visitor to my blog .. .I lurv him!!

So a quick and simple card from me as time is short and precious here at the moment:




This used:

Image and Sentiment:  From The Heart:  "Birthday Candle Birdbrain" (the image came with lots and lots of sentiments)
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
X-Cut:  Small Flower Punch
Glamour Dust
ProMarkers
Chalk
My Trust Sewing Machine
Metallic Cord from My Stash Box

and that is me for today.

Edited to say that my lovely blog buddy Amanda kindly pointed out that the image I had used was the image of the month over at "From The Heart" so my creation can be entered into the Stamp of the Month challenge!  Woo hoo!!  Off I go to enter .. .. and thanks Amanda for letting me know xx. 

Have a good day everyone and I hope you find a bit of quiet crafty time for yourself somewhere during the day.

Love
