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 got off to a good start .. .. the first day back at work for lots of folk and back to school for our local kids.  

Getting back to a sense of normality after a good Christmas break always seems extra tough don't you think?

Many thanks for your lovely comments on my post of yesterday.  I was asked about the cute image on the new baby card .. .. it is Baby Rosie from Digistamp Boutique and you can find her here.

The new Quick Cards Made Easy magazine is going on sale tomorrow and I thought you might like to see a card from two of the commissions I was fortunate to be asked to work on. 

My favourite from the Watercolour Effects Commission was this one (though to be fair I loved each and every one and really enjoyed making them all).  Must make time to get my paintbrushes out more.

and the second commission was a Foiling commission and this stepped wobble card was my favourite from this set.

So that is me for today.

I'll hopefully catch you again soon.
