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

I hope you are having a good weekend.

Nothing like as much done today as I would have hoped .. .. but a lovely day all the same (except for the weather!).  I have a happy couple getting married next Saturday and I certainly hope the weather is kinder to them than it has been today.

Just a quick and simple share from me today:

This used:

Image:  Penny Black "2356K" Merry Band
Sentiment:  Computer Generated using font "Chauncy"
Backing Paper:  Pink Petticoat "Twill Stripe"
Martha Stewart Punch:  Embossed Zig Zag
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
My Trusty Sewing Machine

and that is it.

I'll be back tomorrow, with my snippets which I am happy to say are already made and waiting to make an appearance.  Must admit I am quite pleased with them this week.

See you then, and in the meantime have yourself a lovely evening.
