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 New Year's Eve  .. ..  ahead of what I hope is going to be a very happy year for you all.

I know lots of people who have had a really rubbish 2016 .. .. I particularly wish them a much kinder year ahead.

After making a clear pathway to my desk this morning I have had my first play with my Brushos this afternoon and I love them!!

This is what I came up with:

This used:

Image:  Indigo Blue "SFL" Stylised Flowers
Sentiment:  A very ancient Pink Petticoat Download that is no longer available (sorry)
Brushos:  Vermillion, Orange and Lemon
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Star Dust Stickles

and that is it.

Not bad for a first play.

Can't hang about tonight . . . . we are off to see the new year in with my lovely Sis .. .. and I have volunteered myself the driver for the evening .. .. so no sore head for me tomorrow!

Best make sure Mr Heart has got my elder flower cordial in the drinks bag!!

Have a good evening everyone .. .. many thanks for all the good wishes and emails.  I'll catch you soon.  Mwah!!!!

Gorgeous, love the colours and it is a fabulous background, gorgeous flowers too.
Happy New Year to you as it will probably be 2017 when you read this.
Heard that P.P was starting up again but under a different name but can't remember what it was.

Wishing you a very happy and healthy New Year.

Fabulous card Jules. The colours are gorgeous, I have got some Brushos but only the earth tones which I love, but I think I may have to invest in some brighter colours too.
Wishing you a happy New Year
