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 Saturday.

I hope you have had a good day.

It was quite a nice day weather wise her today .. .. almost Spring like!! 

The first bright sunny days of a year always seem super special and I get all excited about the prospect of hopefully a lovely summer coming .. .. .. but on the down side it shows up all the dirt that seems to have collected in strange places over the winter!  Eeeekk!!  Had to do a few "marigold" jobs this morning as I felt so guilty!!  LOL!!

I also realised that I hadn't joined in the Penny Black Saturday Challenge yet this month .. .. and time is running out .. .. so here is my offering

This used:

Image:  Penny Black "1301K" Hedgehog Kisses
Sentiment:  Elzybells (sadly no longer trading)
Backing Papers:  Docrafts "Forever Friends Kraft Notes"
Adirondack Lights "Pink Sherbert"
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Ribbon and Mulberry Flowers from My Stash Box

and that is it.

The theme this month for the challenge is "For Someone Special" .. .. mine is for for "someone(s)" special. Hope it counts!

Enjoy the rest of your evening and I'll catch you again tomorrow with my snippet makes .. .. you wouldn't believe how many of those pesky snippets I have made today!!!  Serious cutting out duties were needed for wedding orders and now I have snippet mountains to prove it!  

See you soon.

Awww, how cute this card is Jules! I love those hedgehogs and they makes such a cute anniversary or couples kind of cards! Love that paper and of course you know I just love your coloring. It's been spring like here too and really giving me the fever to get outside, but we are knee deep with snow and melting snow. It will be a while before the ground is able to be step on! Enjoy your beautiful weather! Hugs!

Had the marigolds out myself yesterday too - but not for long. A little bit at a time methinks. Windows next I think. Sunshine not doing me any favours there.

So soft and beautiful Jules! Gorgeous, neat stitching too. And of course, I LOVE the image as I am such a HUGE PB fan. I often say I don't need anymore PB stamps, but somehow one will just slip into my shopping basket...just can't help myself :-)
