My photo
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.

Image:  Magenta:  "19746" Deco Vase
Sentiment:  Pink Petticoat
Backing Papers:  GCD Studios "Soul Food"
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
and whatever that black woven strip is called I have machined over LOL!!

and that is me for today.

Time for a few turns of that Cuttlebug handle now whilst catching up with a bit of TV .. .. I need lots and lots of hearts for a set of wedding invitations/order of service booklets.  

Catch you again soon.
