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 week has been going well.  

The weather has been really lovely here and I am hoping it is going to hold out until tomorrow when one of my lovely brides gets married.

She called and collected all her goodies mid week and suddenly I found I had gained half a room!!  I couldn't believe just how much there was until it was all collected together,

Lots of tidying up needed here in the House of Hearts .. .. but no chance to do any.  Still trying to do work for the wedding fayre on Sunday.

But I did have a little colouring session and came up with a creation which fits nicely into the Penny Black Saturday Challenge where the theme is to use three or more different patterned papers.  Only just in time to enter though .. .. the challenge closes in a few hours!!  Phew!

This used:

Image:  Penny Black "1706H" I'm So Cute!!
Sentiments:  Lili of the Valley "Sentiment Tags"and Docrafts "Relations"
Backing Papers:  Nitwits "Dress Shoppe Collection"
Nestabilities:  Classic Squares and Classic Rectangles
Ribbon from my crafty stash box
and there is a bit of glossy accents on that character's little nose .. .. but you might not see it.

.. .. .. .. and along with my card comes Sketch Seventeen too, which I have also added to the library tab: 

OK .. .. off to link up quickly and then I need to head off for a quick catch up with my Mum, Sis and Nieces .. .. time for a bit of chatty girl time and no doubt laughter until we cry!!  It really is the best medicine!

Catch you all again when I do.

Have a lovely weekend.
