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 Saturday!

Don't ask me where I have been because I'm not sure .. .. .. I think the time thief visited the House of Hearts when I had my head turned and stole nearly half a week LOL!!

In fact I am so late that I haven't even posted my Thursday's Child card .. .. I really must get into this scheduling malarkey in the hope of improving things.

So let's rewind the clock and pretend it is Thursday .. .. which brings a card for a child:

 This used:

Image:  Penny Black "4054K" Gentlest Kiss
Sentiment:  Woodware Clear Magic Singles "Make a Wish"
Backing Papers:  Pink Petticoat (sadly no longer trading)
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Ribbon from my crafty stash box

and now we can whizz back to Saturday .. .. and that is how quickly the end of my week has gone LOL!!

A lot of what stole my time made me feel like I had gone back to secretarial work .. .. .. lots of typing, filing, printing and research. Hopefully next week will be kinder to my little blog.

Enjoy your weekend everyone.

All being well I will be here with my snippets tomorrow.
