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 you all enjoyed your weekend and are all geared up for another week!

A scheduled post from me today (one of a few I have managed to cobble together) because I have a big week of wedding work ahead of me.

This one shows you my favourite makes for the latest Quick Cards Made Easy Magazine which is currently on sale.

My first commission saw me working on a Technique called "Mason Jar Cards" .. .. using a fabby stamp and die set from Stampin' Up! called Jar of Love.  Who would have thought it would team up perfectly with lots of penguins from DigiStamp Boutique.  I loved all of my cards from this collection but this one was my favourite .. .. and it is currently the wallpaper on my laptop!  A very festive reminder to crack on with more Christmas makes .. .. LOL!!

and my second commission was entitled Foil Transfers and saw me playing with foil transfers from Crafter's Companion.  Such a great selection of sentiments and designs .. .. and great fun to use too!  This one was my favourite from this collection

So that is me for today on the posting front.

More festive creations to follow as the week goes on .. .. yay!

Enjoy your day.

Despite my 'good' intentions I was tempted by the QCME magazine this morning and just loved your penguin cards - another use for my mason jar set which hasn't seen the light of day for a while. Just downloaded some cuties to make a start, thanks for the inspiration - a bit of colouring and snipping to be done!
