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

Not such a bright and beautiful day here today .. .. in fact it dared to rain on my washing!!!  LOL!!!

A very quick share of one of my creations: 

This used:

Image:  Penny Black "3741K" Filigree Tree
Sentiment:  Computer Generated
Backing Paper:  DCWV Rose Tinted Christmas
Martha Stewart Punch:  Embossed Zig-Zag
Adirondack Lights:  Pink Sherbert
Cosmic Shimmer Embossing Powder:  Black Sparkle
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Cord from the stash box

I heat embossed the gorgeous tree image with the Cosmic Shimmer Powder .. .. but unfortunately the camera won't pick up all the lovely sparkle for you :-( 

So it is Wednesday again .. .. The Apprentice is on again yay!!!  I was asked if I have any favourites .. .. well I like (in no particular order) Liz and Jamie .. .. so no doubt I have just given them the kiss of death!!  LOL!!

Have a good evening everyone and thank you for calling by and all the lovely comments you leave me.  See you again tomorrow.

Hi Jules. I can imagine just how sparkly this is in real life. It's a gorgeous tree and I love it teemed with the pink, very modern.
Thanks for your thoughts on DST. I always use good stuff so like you say it should be OK. I just had a panic and thoughts of things falling apart!!!
I love your snowman card btw, what a great sentiment. I must remember that one!!
Hugs Lisax
