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 everyone is well and the world is being kind to you.

Once again I will apologise for my lack of appearance in blogland .. .. but "happy couples" have to come first and they are certainly keeping me super busy.

But there is a treat on the cards for me today and I am switching the computer off (and hopefully my brain) for a "hot date" with none other than the gorgeous Marti Pellow.  The London Kids treated me to a ticket earlier in the year so I have been waiting for today for many, many months (thank you kids .. .. mwah!!!).

Can't wait.  Last time I saw him he was narrating Evita .. .. .. but this time it is Blood Brothers.

A new show and storyline for me, but one which I am told I will enjoy.  But to be fair I would watch Marti doing anything.  He could be painting wall and I would just watch  LOL!!

Last time at Evita I was near enough to see his gorgeous sparkly eyes .. .. hopefully the same will be true today!  

For those enjoying my sketches I have also added Sketch Fourteen into the mix .. .. which looks like this:

I hope it is of use for those of you collecting them.  It is lovely seeing creations popping up in blogland using them.

When I get home I am hoping a pre-loved Penny Black stamp will have dropped through my letterbox and all being well I might even get chance to tickle that with a bit of colour and post it here later in the week. 

Enjoy today everyone.

Another great sketch and I must get round to using some, but I start on a card then forget, must be my age.
Still looking good isn't he, I loved Wet, Wet, Wet, saw him live then the next day he was on Noel Edmunds Saturday show, couldn't tell a word he was saying, doesn't sing Scottish, lol.

Hi Jules, miss you when you're not on here - but you are right , your weddings must come first !
I'm sure you'll love Blood Brothers, take a big box of tissues, I first saw it when we went to London for our Silver Wedding Anniversary, we've been married 51 years now - so a long time ago ! Have seen it in Nottingham since and enjoyed it just as much.
Enjoy it and let us all know how you get on.
