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

Well what a wet and miserable Monday it has been!!  It has hardly brightened up at all today here.

Lots of creations need to be done in the House of Hearts .. .. but still time for a little share.

This used:

Image:  Penny Black "1342K" Hugs & Kisses For You (love this image it might be my second fav)
Sentiment:  Great Impressions "E411"

Backing Paper:  Pink Petticoat
Martha Stewart Punch:  Traditional Scallop

X-Cut Punch:  Small Flower
Ribbon and Pearls from the Stash Box

A couple of answers to questions regarding my Snippet Collection of yesterday.

Carole sent me a comment ...  part of which said:

"Ok so now ..... where is the heart on the second card? I've enlarged it, scanned it, sent it through the Techeartoscope; sliced, diced and reassembled it and then forwarded it on to the CIA and even they can't find it. Well .... it is the CIA so thats not saying much. LOL I give, where is it? LOL"

Carole .. .. the hearts are there I promise and there are lots of them .. .. they are all along the black ribbon.  Strangely enough I can see them on my laptop but not so well on my stand alone machine.  Hope you can see them now you know where they are LOL!!  I tried to blow up a picture to show you but it doesn't look very good.  Sorry if you spent a lifetime looking and sorry if the CIA are going to be charging you for wasting their time LOL!!!  Where do you get Techeartoscopes from? .. .. I think I need one of those for quality control purposes .. .. tee hee!!

Also Loftylass would like to know what paper I used on the Wedding Card.  Yes, you are right it is Pink Petticoat .. .. "Just An Old Fashioned Girl".

So I now have my poorly lappy back again .. .. yay!!!   A new hard drive and a new battery and it is like a new machine.  We are now in the process of getting everything back on it.

Lovely to have my machine back again .. ... with keys where I expect them to be!!  There are extra ones on the old machine I have been using and I kept pressing one of them by accident that thought I was wanting to print all the time.  Good job it wasn't connected to a printer or I would have got through a couple of reams of paper!!!   Eeekk!!!

Catch you again tomorrow.  I am sure there won't be any problems with the heart tonight LOL!!

Have a lovely evening.

Hi Jules, well that's a relief - thought I was going mad when I couldn't see the heart(s) on your second card yesterday. I was convinced it was me being stupid and couldn't possibly ask you again!! As you said, no probs tonight! Fab image - I've never seen it before, and I love the sentiment. How do you take such lovely photos? xxx

Must admit it took me a long time to find that heart. Then I remembered that fiendish black heart ribbon you use sometimes just to tease us and then i found them!!!
By the way don't worry about 'Trish' - I answer to most variations , just don't ever call me 'Pat'!! Been Patricia all my life to my parents but Pat has never been a name I took too.

Oh this card is adorable. I love that stamp and though some would say it isn't so, I don't have that PB stamp. :D Well done with the Promarkers.

Whew!! Glad to hear there are hearts on the ribbon from yesterdays card. I still can't see them, but I'll take your word for it as you have never steered us wrong yet. :D

The techeartoscope is a highly classified piece of equipment that only I and MI6 have. Even those idiots at the CIA don't have one. And don't worry about the bill, I pay more than enough taxes to earn a freebie once in a while. LOL!!!

I've been away, Jules, and you are too prolific in your crafting for me to leave a comment on all of your recent posts but I do love them all. This one in particular caught my eye. Love the image! Hugs, Lesley
