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!

Well yesterday turned into a lovely sunny day eventually (Sally kindly sent the sun over from France) and today started off beautiful and sunny but is now turning decidedly grey .. .. typical after spending precious time watering all the flowers and crops.

Many thanks for your lovely comments on my creations over the last few days. I have really been enjoying being around a little bit more .. .. but I am sure you all know what is around the corner .. .. table plans and table stationery for all those August and September "happy couples" and save the dates for those who are just starting their journey with me  .. .. then a website to finish ahead of an October wedding fayre .. .. phew!!!.

But I have been trying to be more organised and get some cards behind me ready for sharing whilst I am chipping away at all of the above.  It is lovely to have my fingers in lots of pies and be able to jump from one type of crafting to another.  I love the variety.

Anyway, here is my share for today

This used:

Image:  Penny Black "4058J" Yearning
Sentiment:  Tag from Craftwork Cards "Potting Shed" Paper Pad
Backing Papers:  First Edition Paper "New Leaf"
Die-namics Die Set:  Blueprints 14
X-Cut Punch:  Flower
Twine and Dew Drop from My Crafty Stash Box
and .. .. tah dah .....


used at last which means I can now add sketch three into the mix.

It would appear that yesterday's heart wasn't easy for everyone .. .. .. so to put you out of your misery .. .. here it is .. .. nestling under that leaf:

Many thanks for calling by my blog .. and for looking for the hearts LOL!!

Catch you again soon.
