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

I hope your bank holiday weekend has got off to a good start - certainly a mixed bag of weather here - but nice enough for my "happy couple" all being well.  No major rain showers .. .. yet!!!

One of the things I miss most when I am busy on the wedding front is playing with my Penny Black stamps .. .. so today I decided I would indulge in a Penny Black session and see what the theme is this month over at the Penny Black Saturday Challenge.

Well a bit of a struggle for me this one .. .. Wedding, Anniversary and all things Love .. .. LOL!!!

But here is what I came up with:

This used:

Image:  Penny Black "1587K" So Glad to Catch You!
Sentiment:  Computer Generated using font "Aracne Condensed Regular"
Backing Papers:  Nitwit "Everlasting Collection"
Nestabilities Dies: Circles and Scalloped Circles
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Glossy Accents
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Metallic Twine from my crafty stash box

and that is it.

Having a crafty session with my lovely Sis today (YAY!!!) and then and Indian takeaway together ... .. happy times!!!

Catch you again soon.
