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 just wanted to pop by and wish anyone who happens to call at my blog a very Happy Christmas.

If you are a follower or a regular visitor .. . then thank you for the time you spend coming to visit my blog.  I appreciate all of your visits and words of encouragement.  Blogland is such a wonderful place and I have met so very many special folk .. .. some of whom I just know will remain friends for always.

If you have just happened to stumble across me then welcome .. .. and I hope you have  found something here you liked the look of.

No new share today .. .. .. my craft pod is closed for Christmas LOL!!! .. .. and the kitchen is now open for business .. .. but I would just like to share with you my very favouritist make of 2010.

I made this creation after a very special weekend away with my lovely hubby.  A weekend that holds lots of special memories for both of us.  If you would like to know what I used to make this creation or the story behind it then you can find the original post that featured it here.


I'll catch you all again soon and let you know whether Santa chose to leave me anything crafty to play with .. .. .. only one more bed!!!  Woo hoo!!!

OK then .. .. back to the kitchen for me .. .. poor Cinders LOL!!!.  All is going to plan in there .. .. just time for a quick cup of tea before I start again.

Have a good one everybody!!!

See you soon.
