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 you had a brilliant weekend.  

It doesn't seem two minutes since I was saying this last week LOL!!

I thought I would share a couple of cards which were part of a set I made for the current issue of  Quick Cards Made Easy magazine.

Normally I just share my favourite .. .. .. but this time I have struggled to decide which to show because I love them all for different reasons.

So I have whittled it down to two.  The first one because I just love it .. .. and the second because I enjoyed encasing the lovely diecut in acetate.

I was asked to work with Wild Rose Studio Dies and Design Papers and I teamed them up with Pink Petticoat sentiments.  They worked really well together and I love the colours in the backing papers.

Of course my pictures don't look anything like as good as the ones the magazine took but at least they are good enough to share.

Have a lovely day everyone.  The weather is gorgeous again here today .. .. such a huge difference to Saturday! 

I'll catch you again tomorrow for "Teeny, Tiny Tuesday".

I loved that article (even more than I usually love your work lol!) because there are so many great ideas for different ways to use die-cuts!

It's impossible to choose one of your lovely cards as a favourite, both are beautiful!
