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.

This used:

and that is me for today!

If you fancy playing along this is the sketch I used:

Time to battle with a bit of the ironing mountain now!!  That's the down-side of beautiful weather .. .. I always manage to find something to wash LOL!!!

Enjoy the rest of your evening.

Catch you soon.
