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 wonderful (extra long) Sunday!!

I can't decide what I have done with my extra hour .. .. .. certainly not much crafting .. .. .. but then not every day can be perfect can it LOL!!

Quite a bit of shopping done though .. .. including some of the dreaded Christmas presents.  I am determined to be ready super early this year.

Today's creation is for a challenge I have never taken part in before.  The Friday Sketchers

The sketch this week was lovely to work with and here is what I created:

This used:

Image:  Buzzcraft "Fairy Doodles" No. 430
Backing Papers:  Pink Petticoat
Sentiment:  Computer Generated
Image background:  Adirondack Lights "Cloudy Blue and Pink Sherbert"
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Hobbycraft Punch:  Small Snowflake
Diamond Stickles
Glamour Dust

So that is me for today.

Tomorrow I am back with the start of a new month .. .. which means the launch of a new Penny Black at Allsorts Challenge and a new Funky Hand Challenge.  Woo hoo!!!

See you bright and early tomorrow.

X-Factor results tonight!!  Not such a good show last night I didn't think and Wagner has to go for me (if only to stop everyone saying the poor chaps name wrong .. .. how many times does he have to correct them!!)..
