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

Happy Wednesday!!!

Gosh .. .. this new posting routine seems to be going well .. .. I wonder how long it will last? LOL!!

I don't about you but yesterday we had just about all the seasons in one day!  Huge snowflakes, thunder and lightening, rain and even beautiful sunshine and blue skies.  The blinds in my craft pod were going up and down, up and down, like a chimney sweeps brush all day.  One minute I was being blinded by the sun and the next it was dull.

Today is starting off with a good frost and sunshine .. .. so let's see whether we get another repeat of yesterday!

Anyway, just a simple and cute anniversary card from me today

This used:

Image:  Penny Black "3608J" Love Tail
Sentiment:  Mama Elephant "Bountiful Blessings
Backing Papers:  TinkerNCodigital "Grandma's Attic 2" (careful if you dare to link - lots of beautiful downloads)
Josy Rose: Nail Heads
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Glamour Dust
Glossy Accents
Lace and Ribbon from my crafty stash box

So that is me for today .. .. bright and early again .. .. woo hoo!!!

Time now to go and line up the work for the day!  

Order of Service and place name printing, invites to design, some general orders to complete and lovely magazine commissions to work on.  

I think I will have enough to keep me quiet! LOL!!

Have a good day everyone.
