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

Another lovely day today .. .. lots of beautiful sunshine - but I resisted the temptation to make even more ironing LOL!!!

Card production has continued again today .. .. but where exactly does the day go?  I start off thinking that the day is going to last for ever but it just disappears!!

I remembered to take my photograph a little earlier today and here is my share:

This used:

Image:  Penny Black "40-038" Kindness
Sentiment:  Woodware "FRCL044" Family Christmas
Backing Papers:  Pink Petticoat
Diamond Stickles

I love this image very much and it was beautiful to colour. 

So The Apprentice is on again tonight.  I wonder which one is on their way today?  I might have to half watch and listen whilst colouring a few more images!!  My card stocks were increasing quite well but I have sold quite a few of them today so need to replace the sold ones and make more besides LOL!!!

OK - back to it.  Just time to make another creation before hubby gets home.

Only 5 more evenings before I will allow myself to blog visit and comment again .. .. but my nose is itching as to what you have all been up to!!  LOL!!

Thank you for calling by  -  I'll catch you again tomorrow with another make.
