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

Hope you are having a good day.

Mine has involved spending my Christmas pennies .. .. .. don't get excited .. .. .. it wasn't on any new craft stash ... ... it was on a new battery for my car !!  :-(

I was hoping to have hit a little craft sale somewhere with my Christmas pennies  .. ..   but no.  Not this time.  Never mind - at least my car will start now.

So just a quick share today ahead of us heading out to see some of our friends this evening.

This used:

Image:  Funstamps "F-M124" Five Hearts
Sentiment:  Elzybells
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder:  Swiss Dots
Nestabilities:  Large Labels
Gold Embossing Powder
Glamour Dust
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Ribbon from the Stash Box

Next I have some Penny Black at Allsorts news for you.

We have two new DT members (Louise and Tracy - hello teamies xx) ready and waiting for the launch of our next challenge on the 1st January and then to add to the excitement we are going to be having a Blog Hop on 15th January with lots of lovely prizes up for grabs.

It would be great if you would be kind enough to pop our lovely Blog Hop Logo on your sidebar to help us spread the word and also to remind you to take part in the hop and try to win some of the lovely goodies(thank you if you do xx).   This fantastic logo was made for us by the super talented Emma .. .. isn't it fab!!!  I wouldn't know where to start in creating one of these!!  Thanks Emma xx

Right, time to make myself look respectable.

I will catch you again tomorrow.
