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.

No .. .. not me .. .. my little image for today!!  LOL!!

I have spent quite a bit of the day with my Mum today .. .. doing loads and loads of colouring .. .. and talking and re-living the olden days!!  Some of them good and some of them bad .. .. but all part of life's rich tapestry.

I was able to take along lots of things to show her as I have been working on some wedding stationery for a fayre my lovely Sis and I are doing towards the end of March .. .. and it was great to be able to share it with her. 

I still have loads and loads and loads to do for the fayre  and it may mean me having a blog break just so I can give it 100% for a week or two ..  but for now I will battle on.  At least if I haven't visited you for a little while you know the reason.

But for now here is my share for today:

This used:

Image:  Penny Black "1706H" I'm So Cute !!
Sentiment:  Woodware Clear Stamps (all individual words you put together to make up your own sentiment)
Backing Papers:  Pink Petticoat
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Glossy Accents for the doggies cold little nose
Diamond Stickles
Ribbon from the Stash Box

I have also been the recipient of some more lovely awards.  Thank you very much ladies for thinking of me.

I promise that I will get around to posting them (and revealing even more secrets about myself!!!) but for now I am afraid they are on the back burner as time has become extra precious and scarce .. .. sorry!!

Right back to it for me....

Catch you again tomorrow.
