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 are all well and finding a bit of crafty time for yourself.

We have a glimmer of sunshine today .. .. what a treat after the rubbish weather we have had recently.

Sorry I didn't make it as far as my blog yesterday . .. . it was a super busy day and it is looking like today is going to be the same, with orders to complete and wedding samples to make for couples interesting in booking for next year!  Woo hoo!!  Names already going into the 2016 Wedding Diary!!

So as I just know today is going to disappear in the blink on an eye I thought I would post my favourite makes from the new Quick Cards Made Easy Magazine that went on sale yesterday.

I worked on two commissions, the first being sequin shaker cards.  I loved this commission and here are two of my favourites:

and the following two pictures were my favourites for a Metallics Commission

Separate to Quick Cards Magazine I also did some work for a special Christmas Magazine that is out now .. Make Christmas Cards.  

a bumper pack of goodies included with this magazine and here are my three favourite submissions:

A bit of photograph overload I'm afraid .. .. .. but at least it gives you lots of hearts to look for .. .. some of which are not quite as easy to spot as others!!  LOL!!!

.. .. .. and for you Facebook fans .. .. Quick Cards are giving folk the chance to win prizes in their 12 days of Christmas giveaways. Head over here if you fancy testing your luck out - they are already on day 6!!  Always lots happening on their page so you might have to scroll down a bit.

Enjoy your day.  I hope it is sunny for you too.

Catch you tomorrow.
