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

I hope you have had a good week and have a nice weekend planned!  Hopefully it will involve a bit of crafty playtime for those with itchy crafting fingers!

The London Kids are landing early doors tomorrow for us to spend a few days together .. .. my Niece is getting married on Monday so lots of celebrating to be done!!

But for now a share from me using the latest sketch in my little library .. .. Sketch number ten!  I am so pleased I have got around to using this one .. .. it was a favourite when I created it and I am quite chuffed with how it looks now I have used it.

So here we go:

This used:

Sentiment:  A very, very old Anita's Stamp (from way back when)
Backing Papers:  Craft Sensations by Grafix "Romantic Fine Art"
Woodware Punches:  Daisies
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
My Trust Sewing Machine
Ribbon stolen from my wedding sample making box (the only place I could find the right colour LOL!!)

and tah dah .. .. 

Sketch number ten from my little sketch library tab

Best get another sketch added to the mix tomorrow .. .. but for now I had better disappear.  I am nearly in bad books with Mr Heart because I should be downstairs by now sharing quality time!!!! Eeekkk!!!

Catch you soon.

Jules, you sound as if you are in for a very busy time? I know that feeling and we are just getting back to normal now that our visitors are home and all the wedding stuff is finished. Your card is gorgeous I love your design and could be changed for a male card with using other colours. Enjoy the London kids and the wedding. Hazel,x
