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

What a  strange day it has been.

Up super early with the alarm .. .. it was still dark!!!  Saw hubby off to work and got cracking on getting the world back to how it used to be before the excitement of Christmas.

It has been very quiet .. .. but lots of tasks and a few creations done and dusted.  The quiet will soon be broken though as hubby should be back home very soon .. ..   yay!!!.

Today I thought I would have a go at another sketch challenge.  I am quite into my sketches at the moment.  This time the sketch is from "Mojo Monday".

Here is my creation:

This used: 

Image:  Whiff of Joy "Henry Mouse Hugging Heart"
Sentiment:  Computer Generated
Backing Papers:  All Funky Hand CD "It's Funky Too"
Nestabilities:  Standard Circles Large, Classic Scalloped Circles Large, Classic Rectangles Small
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Glamour Dust
Diamond Stickles

Here is the sketch

So talking of Funky Hand Goodies you may remember that I told you yesterday that Anice is looking to find additional playmates to join our lovely Funky Gang.

If you pop here you can read all about what is involved and what lovely goodies we get to play with and the opportunities we get as a member of the DT. 

I will catch you all again tomorrow.

Have a good evening.
