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!!!

The start of a whole new sparkly week!!

I wonder what this one is going to hold?

My share today is for the Sketch Saturday Challenge:

This used:

Sentiment:  Penny Black "3849E" Birthday Dreams
Backing Papers:  Nitwits "Petal Fresh"
My Favorite Things:  Die-Namics Die Set Blueprints 12
Memory Box Dies:  Moonlight Butterfly and Kaleidoscope Butterfly
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
My Trust Sewing Machine
Felt, Button and Pearls from My Crafty Stash Box

and if you fancy playing along then here is the sketch I followed.

As I am in scheduled post mode this week I will link up later.

Enjoy your day everyone and I will catch you tomorrow with my Teeny, Tiny Tuesday make.

Gorgeous Jules, absolutely gorgeous. Blues and greens are my favorite colors and the lovely pale blues with the fantastic bright butterfly and nails is WOW!!! Love, love, love this card.

Apologies for not stopping by for such a very long time. Real life has taken me away from my crafting on a regular basis but I'm slowly making my way back into card making and posting.

Hope you are well,
