A very warm welcome to my teeny, tiny part of the huge world of blogging. This is where I 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 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 is going well.  The weather here isn't quite as bad as we were expecting.

Quite a nice relaxed Saturday here in comparison to last Saturday when I was preparing for the wedding fayre.

I decided to nip over to the Penny Black Saturday Challenge and take part in that this month as I haven't been able to for a while now :-(

I must admit I was expecting (and rather hoping) that the challenge would be Christmas related .. .. but no!  They would like "anything but a card". Eeekkk!!

But ever up for a challenge I decided to make Mr Heart a bookmark that clamps over the relevant page with the help of a couple of concealed magnets.

This used:

Image:  Penny Black "3773H" Love Graffiti, "3880K" Fantasy and two little butterflies from "30-013" Critter Party
Distress Ink:  Tumbled Glass
Glossy Accents

I have stashed it into his reading book of the moment .. .. I wonder how long it will be before he grabs it for a read and finds his little pressie?  Answers on a postcard LOL!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.  We are out for a meal with friends tonight .. .. thankfully the rain has stopped .. .. let's hope it stays that way!
