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 Wednesday!

Hopefully your day has been good .. .. though looking at the news and all the floods and water damage some people are having an awful time of it at the moment :-(

Again tonight is a quick post to share another card I made last week whilst Mr Heart was away.  What makes you think I had my Penny Black drawer open for most of the week LOL!!!

This used:

Image:  Penny Black "3702J" Jump for Joy!
Sentiment:  Computer Generated
Backing Papers:  Pink Petticoat (sorry I think they disappeared in Liz's clearout)
Go Kreate Die:  Large Frame Scalloped Squares
X-Cut Punch:  Small Flower
My Trusty Sewing Machine

and that is it.

Another late show from the House of Hearts!!

It feels quite good to have a stack of pictures just ready for posting .. .. hope they don't run out too quickly!!
