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 Monday!

I hope your week has got off to a good start.

Did you hear the promise of the hottest summer on record coming our way?!?!?  I wonder if that will come with a hosepipe ban too?!?!

I am in need of a few quick cards so I used the sketch over at Sketch Saturday to create this:

This used:

Image:  Penny Black "1655K" Ups & Downs
Sentiment:  Hobby Art "CS016D" General Greetings
Backing Papers:  Docrafts "Kraft Notes"
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
X-Cut Punch:  Small Daisy
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Ribbon and Pearls from My Stash Box

and here is the sketch I followed if you fancy playing along

I turned it around for my make.

So that is me for today.  Short and sweet.

I hope you enjoy the rest of your evening.
