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 am a bit earlier today.

Have been getting everything ready for Sunday so now lots of things are piled up in the hallway ready for loading in the car on Sunday morning. 

I decided if I got everything ready today I can then spend tomorrow double checking that all of my creations have got their heart and doing any last minute makes I can pull together.

Here is one of my creations from today's collection .. .. .. it took me ages to colour (not) LOL!!!

This used:

Image:  Penny Black "3907J" A wish for all time
Ribbon:  Hobbycraft
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Diamond Stickles
Dressmakers Tracing Wheel

I really love the ribbon on this one.  I bought it to make some wedding invitation samples .. .. but have stolen a bit for this creation.

No stitching today - but if you look at the "close up" you can just about make out where I have used a tracing wheel to add a bit of extra interest.

So that is me for today .. .. .. 3 more evenings and then I will be let loose on blogland again.  You wouldn't believe how much more I have got made by not blog hopping  - or then again perhaps you would .. .. .. it does eat up your time without you realising doesn't it!!

Have a good evening everyone.

Catch you tomorrow.
