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 later than I intended to be tonight .. .. I still need to get ready for our New Year revellers LOL!!!

So I won't ramble tonight (just for change) and will get straight to my share ...

This used:

Backing Papers:  Memory Stor from Costco
Image:  Elusive "32531" Script Background
Image:  Elusive "73604" Line Dragonfly - Large
Martha Stewart Punch:  Traditional Scallop
Sizzix Die:  Tattered Florals
Distress Ink:  Spiced Marmalade
Nestabilities:  Doodle Parts
LuminArte' Iridescent Red (for painting the dragonfly - which you can just about see)
Brad, sticky back gems, lace and ribbon from the stash box

So that is my last share of 2010!!

I won't have time to visit people tonight as I have to be a party animal (LOL) .. .. as no doubt you will be being too .. .. but I promise to catch up over the weekend.

It just remains for me to wish everyone an enjoyable evening, a very, very, happy New Year and to thank you all for your support, friendship and help during 2010.  I love blogland!!

I hope that 2011 holds everything that is important to you .. .. and love, friendship and health in abundance.

No long list of new year resolutions from me this year .. .. just one .. .. to keep working on being a better person.  I tried hard all this year .. .. but I think there is still room for improvement !!

So HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE .. .. .. see you next year!!!  I'm off to get my party clothes on!!!

Love and New Year hugs
