My photo
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!

I'm not quite as early as I was yesterday .. .. but definitely a lot earlier than has sometimes been known here on this very unpredictable blog!!!

Lots to do so I will nip in and out quickly with my share for today:

This used:

Image:  Lili of the Valley "ST415" Man's Best Friend
Sentiment:  Digistamp Boutique "Simply Birthday Greetings A4 - male"
Backing Papers:  Dovecraft:  Curiosity Corner
X-Cut Decorative Dies:  Speech Bubbles (but I thought they made good clouds)
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Fence die (came as a free diecut with an order)
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Neocolor Watersoluble Wax Pastels

So that is me for today.

Must fly .. ..  I am supposed to be in the kitchen slaving over a hot stove!!!

Catch you soon.
