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 Wednesday .. . midway through another week ALREADY!!!!  Eeeekkk!!!

A scheduled post from me today so I can't even mention what the weather is doing because I haven't the faintest idea .. .. not that it would make any difference to me anyway.  I just need to be shut away in my craft pod creating this week!  

So short and sweet with a card I have made for taking over to the Sketch Saturday Challenge blog.

This used:

Image:  Penny Black "3344J" Rosy!  (again LOL!!)
Sentiment:  Computer Generated using font "Sweetheart Script Limited"
Backing Papers:  First Edition Paper "Bella Rose"
Spellbinders Nestabilities:  Deckled Rectangles
X-Cut Punch:  Flower
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Diamond Stickles
Ribbon and Pearls from My Crafty Stash Box

and if you fancy playing along with the challenge then there is the sketch I used

I turned it on its side for my make.

Back later to link up .. .. but in the meantime I hope you are having a great day.

This is a super sweet birthday card Jules. I am so loving that beautiful rose paper and the polka dot paper-so, so beautiful. I also love how you did the ribbon on this card, even though it has it in the sketch, it looks so awesome with the bow. And of course I just love that sweet little hedgie running with his flower pot filled with pretty roeses. You have it colored so nice too. Hugs, Brenda
