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

I hope you have had a good start to the week.

Time for a quick play tonight .. .. and I ended up with this creation :

This used:

Image:  Hero Arts "H4772" Collage Friend
Backing Papers:  American Crafts "Amy Tangerine" Plus One
Martha Stewart Punch:  Deep Edge Flower Bed
Woodware Punches:  Daisies
Distress Ink Pad:  Old Paper
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Ribbon and Brad from my Stash Box

and talking of ProMarkers.  There was a brilliant offer on at our local Hobbycraft at the weekend.  All these lovely pens for £10.00 .. .. and such gorgeous colours.

I know they are last year's limited edition colours but some of my other pens are 5 years old and they still work perfectly .. .. so I knew these would.  

So that is me for today .. .. late again!!!

Edited to say I think that even Mr Blogger must have been fast asleep when I posted this yesterday because he has only just added it to my dashboard!  

Catch you again soon.

Hi Jules, well I wish my 'quick plays' would result in something as gorgeous as this! I popped into our HC last week, but they only had winter colours on sale, I was tempted but already have duplicates of these :( lovely colours in your pack and yes, a great buy...I still think they're the best of all the markers, hugs Carole Z X
