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.

HAVE A HAPPY DAY

Hi Everyone

Happy Tuesday!!

I hope the day has been kind to you.

No time for colouring and stitching today .. .. just die cutting and piecing together .. .. but I am pleased with the result.




This used:

Sentiment:  Pink Petticoat "Tiny Everyday Sentiments"
Backing Paper:  Dovecraft "Curiosity Corner"
MFT Dienamics Die:  Blueprint 14
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Adirondack Acrylic Paint Dabber:  Snow Cap 
Clear Embossing Powder
Button Twine

and that is it.

Thank you to everyone who left a comment on my card of yesterday.  The stamp I used is actually VERY old!  It is one of the first "proper" stamps I ever bought many, many years ago from a lovely craft store that is sadly no longer in business (I bought this one and a similar thank you stamp).  There was a fabulous set of samples using Hero Arts products hanging on the wall and I very stupidly thought I would be able to replicate the samples .. .. yeah right!!  Wish I could have taken a picture of the samples on a mobile phone and look at them now .. .. but I didn't even have a mobile in those days LOL!! .  

Anyway, that is me for today.

Enjoy what is left of the evening and I'll hopefully catch you again tomorrow.

Love
