My photo
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 and happy weekend!!

My celebration Saturday theme starts today .. .. so here we go with a card that celebrates a wedding anniversary:

This used:

Image:  Penny Black Transparent Stamp Set "30-146" Loads of Love
Sentiment:  Computer Generated using font "Zipty Do"
Backing Papers:  First Edition Papers "Love Story" and We R Memory Keepers "Love Notes"
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Glossy Accents
Glamour Dust

I am also entering this card into the Penny Black Saturday Challenge for May .. .. where the theme is "masculine".

When I ordered this clear stamp set I was expecting this particular image to be quite small, and suitable for my "teeny tiny Tuesday" cards .. .. but was very pleasantly surprised to see how large this gorgeous image from the set actually is.  I have wooden Penny Black stamps that are much smaller!! This card is 14.5cm square, so as you can tell, that cute image certainly isn't "titchy".

Did you manage to catch Debs yesterday on Create and Craft?  I thought she did a brilliant job .. .. well done Debs!! You are a natural!

OK off to link up now .. .. enjoy the rest of your day.
