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 Wednesday!

Today is supposed to be White Card Wednesday .. .. which is when I make use of the pile of white card that grows each day .. .. and grows even faster during the Spring/Summer wedding fever.

But the House of Hearts has had two days away, ahead of Mr Heart returning to work tomorrow and unfortunately, although I started my card as we got home this evening, I haven't finished it .. .. and we will blame that on a little visit to the local Chinese takeway!!!

So this is as far as I have got (I just had to play with my Brushos again .. .. I have been thinking about them nearly all the time whilst I have been parted from them LOL!!)

But I will show you the finished card in my next post.  

Life will return to "normal" in the morning .. .. .. and I just know we aren't going to feel too happy about that 6.00am alarm .. .. .. but needs must because I definitely have to hit the ground running to make up for enjoying the Christmas break far too much.  

So for now I will love and leave you and catch you again tomorrow with the finished version.

Ohhh Jules am in love, what colours did you use cobalt? And maybe purple?
Love it too, itching to use mine now, but have other projects first...
Thanks for sharing your inspiration,

This looks great so far - love Brushos and also Pixie powders which are similar but with mica. It is good to get back to 'normal' - whatever that is!!!
