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.

SKETCH AND STASH CHALLENGE

Hi Everyone

Happy Wednesday .. .. just!! 

A brilliant (and very rare) day in the House of Hearts .. .. as I was actually quite pleased with how much I crossed off that very long "do list". Not very often I say that!!  Mark it on your calendar as I may not say it again this year LOL!!!

My share today is for the Sketch and Stash Challenge.




This used:

Image:  Woodware "FRS160"  Patch Owl
Sentiment:  Computer Generated and stamped over with a blank Lili of the Valley label stamp.
Backing Papers:  Nitwits "Truly Madly Deeply" Collection
My Trust Sewing Machine
Crazy Daisy Flower Loom Winder for my twine flower (only one left in my little box now :-(  so I need to make some more)

and here is the sketch I worked with if you fancy playing along .. .. .


Part of taking part in this challenge is to use something neglected or new.  I went with the "new option" so that I could use my new download from Nitwits!  Love it!!!

Catch you again tomorrow .. .. hopefully a bit earlier than today!

Love
