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!

Well I might have been being good and making Christmas cards nice and early .. .. but I haven't been so good in the Mother's Day card department!  

I have a few of them ordered and on my "do list" so I had better get cracking on with them!!

This one used:

Sizzix Die:  "656521" Flower with Leaves & Stem #2
Backing Papers:  DCWV "Citrus Stack"
Sentiment:  Pink Petticoat (sorry .. .. no longer available)
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
X-Cut Punch:  Butterfly
My Trust Sewing Machine
A touch of  Promarker Ink
Glamour Dust
Button and Gems from my Stash Box

and that is me for today.

Bright and early for a change .. .. but don't be fooled .. .. it won't last!!

Have a lovely evening everyone.
