My photo
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

Well the world is a lot brighter now than it was yesterday .. .. though the Radio Weather-lady isn't painting a very bright picture for the rest of the day .. .. all those poor kids are going to arrive home from their first day back at school soaked!! Yuk!!

Anyway, I am here with proper photographs and info for yesterday's share along with my make for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge.

This week the theme is to follow a colour recipe ... ... brown, purple and cream.

Here is my creation

with a close up of the cute little chappie
This used:

Backing Papers: Pink Petticoat
Josy Rose: Nail heads

and now to finish off the share from last night's post.

With all the glossy accents dry I am now able to stand up my creation for its "photo-shoot" LOL!!

Here we go
and a close up

This used:
