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 happy Friday .. .. ahead of what will hopefully be a happy weekend.

Bit late today so I will cut to the chase and stop the waffle LOL!!

Here is my share for today, no challenges or sketches to follow .. .. just lovely to make:

This used:

Image:  Penny Black "3865K" Gossamer
Sentiment:  Pink Petticoat
Backing Papers:  Docrafts Papermania "Parisienne Blue"
My Favorite Things:  Die-Namics Blueprint 14
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Ribbon and Beads from My Crafty Stash Box

and that is me.

No "happy couples" getting married from my wedding list tomorrow .. .. which is a shame as the weather is supposed to be super lovely!!

Enjoy the sunshine if you get chance (and don't forget the suncream).  I don't want to be reading that any of you have turned into lobsters over the next 24 hours!!

Catch you again tomorrow.

Gorgeous card. These are brilliant papers. No sun forecast here for the weekend - wall to wall rain.

Totally divine Jules! Love how you picked up the paper piecing and one of the background papers - as always such a lovely technique!

Suncream is on hand here in the Playground, the duckpond is filled right up and the tree house freezer is full of freshly made ice lollies. Tee, hee! Come and play soon :)

Hugs, Di xx
