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

How nippy has it been today?

We were promised a few "snow flurries" in my neck of the woods today .. .. but so far we have escaped them!!   But it has certainly been very cold and quite windy!

I have had a good production day today .. .. another couple of days like this ahead of the fayre on Sunday and I will be well happy.

Tonight I am sharing one of the makes of the day .. .. another which uses the Papermania paper pack that I finally "allowed myself to use" yesterday.  LOL!!

Here is my make:

This used:

Image:  Penny Black "4092K" A Thorny Affair
Sentiment:  Elzybells
Backing Papers:  All Papermania "A Silent Night"  (Loving these papers)
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Distress Ink:  Old Paper
Diamond Stickles
Glossy Accents
Ribbon from the stash box

So short and sweet from me today.

I suddenly remembered today that I was very kindly sent an award by some of my blog buddies the other week .. .. just before I lost my internet connection for a week.  Thank you ladies.  I really must back-track and find out who sent them to me and get you linked up.

Right back to more makes.

Thanks for calling by.  I am sorry I am not very sociable in visiting this week.  Once the fayre is over and done with on Sunday (and I have thawed out) I will be back catching up with everyone again.

Have a good evening.

Gorgeous card. I love the papers and the image is so cute.
I must admit I don't miss the bad weather in England. We often had snow in Northumberland at Christmas and I never liked driving in it. It is strange getting used to summer at Christmas though.
