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 your weekend was good and Monday has started your week of nicely.

Lots done, and lots more to do, here in the old House of Hearts .. .. but sadly one of today's creations needed to be one of those cards we don't like sending (or even making really).

This used:

Image:  Hero Arts "G5311" Silhouette Spray
Sentiment:  Computer Generated using font "Honey Script"
Backing Papers:  First Edition Papers "New Leaf"
Die-namics Die Set:  Blueprints 14
Gold Embossing Powder
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Ribbons from My Crafty Stash Box
and Sketch Number Two from My Little Sketch Library (this one is quickly becoming a favourite and is getting lots of use here.

Sorry I am not getting very much blog visiting in at the moment :-(  Lots of wedding work needed for Bank Holiday brides .. .. but at least I am finding a few things to share with you.

So that is me for today.

I'll catch you again soon.  Enjoy your evening.

Hate making, hate needing, hate sending....but it's a beauty!

Jules you are right we don't enjoy making these kind of cards, but it's something that has just to be done. Your card is lovely and if this sounds wrong sorry. It has a peaceful feel about it. I don't like making sorrowful cards, and try to make them so that the person receiving it does not feel sorrowful. Hazel x
