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

A very quick share from me tonight .. .. and a bit of a cheat too.

Sadly I ran out of time to make anything I could share today .. .. the whole day has been taken up on lovely orders and wedding work which I cannot share.

So instead I will share a card I made last week but didn't show.

This uses one of my favourite Penny Black stamps .. .. which is probably why he has appeared on my blog a few times now (but in different clothes every time LOL!!).

This used:

Image:  Penny Black "1037K" Lovin' Flowers
Sentiment:  Elzybells
Backing Papers:  Aimee Asher (but a mixture of sets I think)
Martha Stewart Punch:  Traditional Scallop
Cord from the Stash Box

and that is it!!!

I did change the image a little.  The little sign in the plant pot should say "I love you" .. .. but that isn't always appropriate so I changed it on this occasion.

So that is me for today.

I hope you have all had a good day and that the rest of your evening is good.

Hi Jules, I'm sometimes guilty of posting older cards but hey, there just aren't enough hours in the day for us, are there? I do like this image, very cute & clever of you to change the wording. I like the sideways sentiment, that's something I never seem to think to do & all the faux stitching.
