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

Sorry for the no-show yesterday.

No time to make anything to share on my blog as my day disappeared on commission work .. .. and then come the evening .. .. well it took an exciting turn .. ..


Thank you for all your good wishes and happy thoughts and messages.  They clearly did some good!

I have never known the pair of them be so excited about anything.  It was so lovely listen to them and hear all about it.  It is making me smile just thinking about it again :-)

Fingers crossed all goes through smoothly and quickly for them now.  

So after all of that here is my teeny, tiny Tuesday share:

This used:

Spellbinders Nestabilities:  Octagons
Memory Box Dies:  Kaleidoscope Butterfly and Moonlight Butterfly
Papermania Tri-boss Embossing Folder:  Check Mate
X-Cut Punch:  Small Flower
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads and Gems
Ribbon from My Crafty Stash Box
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Distress Ink Pad:  Worn Lipstick
We R Memory Keepers:  Envelope Board

All that for one teeny, tiny card!!!  LOL!!

Enjoy your Tuesday everyone and I'll catch you again soon.

Hi Jules,

Congrats to 'the London Kids' on the house. I'm sooo glad that Nick & I are not trying to buy a house in the ol' Smoke. It was bad enough in '93...that makes me feel!

Lovely little card.
