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

I hope you have all had a good start to a new week!

Mine has been spent having a tidy up of the craft spaces ahead of what is going to be a manic six weeks or so.. .. .. and whilst tidying I came across the box I use to hold images I have coloured and stored ready for use later.  Great for when you are short of time!

So one of those images has made its way onto today's card.

I am going to enter my card into this month's Penny Black Saturday Challenge where they want to see a shaped card (but not square or rectangular) .. .. my choice is a little boring I know .. .. but I went for a circular card.

This used:

Image:  Penny Black "2078H" Birthday Dog
Sentiment and Backing Papers:  Pink Petticoat (now called The Lovely Studio) but the sentiment is no longer available.
Spellbinder Nestabilities:  Classic Circles and Scalloped Circles
Heart and Star Punch
Glossy Accents
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Glitter and Ribbon from my crafty stash box

So that is me for today.  A little later than I intended but better late than never.

Catch you again soon.
