My photo
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 Thursday .. .. ..  I don't know about you but I am certainly not happy about how quickly this week is going!!  

Slow down you manic calendar/clock .. .. you are in far too much of a rush for my liking LOL!!

Anyway, a quick airing of sketch three today from my little sketch library:

This used:

Image:  Penny Black "3864F" Bohemian
Sentiment:  Pink Petticoat (sorry can't see them in the boutique any more)
Backing Papers:  First Edition Paper "Paper Flowers"
Spellbinder Dies:  Classic Circle, Scalloped Circle and Tudor Rose Collection
Glossy Accents
Distress Ink:  Shaded Lilac
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Pearls from My Crafty Stash Box

and here is the sketch I used .. .. but I moved the flower to the opposite side. (As it is my sketch I decided that it was allowed)   LOL!!

Thank you for all your lovely comments and emails about my sketches.  I am pleased that so many of you are enjoying them.  Sketch number six made its way into the collection yesterday and you can find that on the sketch tab at the top.

Enjoy your day everyone.

I am just off to prepare for a new bride who is calling by soon. First job .. .. boil the kettle up ready!!
