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 Thursday!

So come on .. .. admit it .. .. who stole the week!?!?  

I can't believe tomorrow is Friday already!

No playtime this week at all for me .. .. just tasks to cross off a very long list of missions .. .. and as quick as I cross them off I replace them with something else.

But I can share some of my makes from the new Quick Cards Made Easy magazine which is now on the shelves.

I worked on a few projects and these were my favourites from each set

This first one was for a "Stamp With Us" Commission where I choose to work with watercolour paints.

This second card was for a technique commission called "Ways with Embellishments" and this was my favourite from that set:

and lastly I got to work with this month's Cover Gift .. .. a fabby fairy and sentiment stamp alongside a lovely paper collection. I could have gone on and on using this gift .. .. I loved it.

So there we are a few hearts for you to find .... that should keep you busy for a little while.

In the meantime it is "back to it" for me.

No peace for the wicked!!!
