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 hope you have had a really good Saturday.

The weather was deceptively bright and beautiful this morning so when hubby said he needed to nip out I asked if he would mind dropping me off so I could raid the ribbon counter at our local market.

Off we wandered and hubby decided he fancied a walk around the market too (I knew he wanted to visit the old fashioned cheese counter though - not my ribbon stall).  It didn't take long before we realised it wasn't as warm as it actually looked .. .. we could have done with some form of coat really.  Anyone would think we were going for a stroll in summer!!!  Still it made us hurry up.

So after all that I will now share a card that doesn't feature any of the lovely ribbon I bought today LOL!!!

It is for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge where the theme this week is "pretty in pink".

This used:
Image:  Penny Black "1738K" Uplifting Occasion!
Backing Papers:  All from Funky Hand CD "Craft the Year Away"
Woodware Punches:  Daisy
Martha Stewart Punch:  Frond
X-Cut Punch:  Butterfly
Brads and black pearls from the Stash Box

I don't know about "pretty in pink"  the image looks like "kitty in pink" LOL!!  He looks well comfortable doesn't he?

Well rather a late one for me.  Hubby has been to football to watch his team lose again :-(  so I have been crafting away in my little craft pod not realising how time was passing.  Sorry folks.

Anyways, that is me for today.  Just a little reminder that the Penny Black at Allsorts Challenge  (Say It With Flowers) is still going strong if you fancy a play over there.

Back tomorrow with my personal battle against the scrap.

Have a lovely evening everyone.
