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!!

I hope your weekend has got off to a good start.

Most of my day has been taken up starting to sort out the travel kit for next weekend's wedding fayre. I like to take a few new things every time I exhibit, so I have been sorting out a few new colours and sparkly things ready for creating later in the week. But as always one thing leads to another .. .. then another .. .. and no way am I going to be able to make everything I am planning .. .. but I guess it is better that way than having no ideas at all!! 

So I haven't actually made anything today (other than lots of plans and mess) .. .. but I do have a new sketch and a little card which I pulled together yesterday to share.  

Not quite as small as my teeny, tiny cards .. .. this one is a little bit bigger at a whole 4" square and features that little dog die again:

This used:

Marianne Design Creatables:  "LR0339" Scotty Dog
Sentiment:  Computer Generated using font "Budoken"
Backing Papers:  Dovecraft Back to Basics Christmas "Traditional"
Spellbinders Nestabilities:  Scalloped and Classic Circles
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Ribbons from my crafty stash box

and the sparkly new sketch from my little sketch library:

You can see the other sketches in my collection by clicking on the tab at the top of my blog.  Feel free to use them if any take your fancy.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend - and don't forget to alter those clocks.  A whole extra hour!  Woo hoo!

Hi Jules
Hope you're keeping well.
Loving all the tartan and the little dog - reminds me of a favourite handbag(s)!

Good luck with your plans for the wedding fair. Great to see the little Scottie again with the tartan background which is so appropriate.
