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

Don't get excited!!!

Just because I have appeared two days on the trot doesn't mean a new year resolution of posting to my blog every day .. .. I only go for resolutions that I have some hope of keeping!!  LOL!!

But I did want to play along with Debby's annual request for us to show our favourite five creations of 2014 .. .. so here we go

Number 1

This was the favourite of my "teeny, tiny, Tuesday cards" .. .. though I could have picked all five just from those.  I love making them .. .. and the finished tiny cuteness!!

Number 2

I chose this one just because I loved it.  

 Number 3

This one was made with some of those pesky snippets and I loved the colours and finished look. Another one of those cards I can't seem to make enough of.  It is always popular with customers.

Number 4

I was pleased the title is to show "creations" and not "cards" as I can share the first creation I made using the Bind-It-All machine I bought from E-bay last year.  

Number 5

Just had to include this one as it uses one of my favourite techniques .. .. paper piecing .. .. and also one of those lovely flowers made with the crazy daisy flower loom.

So those are my five choices for this year.  It is always nice looking back over the last year of makes .. .. I copied a few into my "must make again" file too .. .. so two jobs done at the same time!!  Woo hoo!!

Thank you for asking us to share our makes again Debby.

Back to invitation making for me now .. .. I have been in residence at the dining room table since the family went home at the beginning of the week .. .. lots and lots of wedding makes needed  for January and February!!

Enjoy your evening everyone.
