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

Happy Monday!

We have lovely sunshine here today and a temperature that is bearable .. .. well it is inside the old House of Hearts which is where I am being kept nice and busy.

My printer is on a big printing job ready for my next mission .. .. so whilst that is happening I thought I would share my card for today:

This used:

Image:  Lili of the Valley "Super Striker"
Sentiment:  Pink Petticoat "Happy Birthday Sentiments"
Backing Papers:  Nitwits - Football Paper "Kickin' It"  Checks "Truly Madly Deeply Too
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Ribbon from My Crafty Stash Box

and that is it for my ingredients.

My printer has just finished so time for a quick coffee and then it will be nose to the grindstone!!

Enjoy the rest of today and I will catch you tomorrow for Teeny Tiny Tuesday!
