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 Saturday.

Bit of a drizzly start to the weekend here :-(

Today is my Mum's birthday.  Happy Birthday Mum .. ..

This used:

Sentiment:  Pink Petticoat "Mum's are Like Buttons" (this is a Mother's Day set really but this sentiment lends itself  nicely to birthdays too)
Backing Papers:  First Edition Papers "Bella Rose"
Cheery Lynn Die:  Fanciful Flourish
Joy Craft Die:  Curved Edge Flowers
Go Kreate Dies:  Frilly Square #3
Distress Ink Pad:  Peacock Feathers
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Lace, ribbon and button from My Crafty Stash Box

and that is it .. .. all ready for delivering.

I have just rang and sang "happy birthday" at the top of my voice .. .. only to find out afterwards that Mum had put me on speaker phone and she had a room full of visitors  LOL!! 

Catch you again tomorrow with my snippet makes.
