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 the weather has been as beautiful with you as it has been here today .. .. wall to wall sunshine!!  Yay!!! 

Not that it made any difference .. .. I still spent the day in the craft pod!!  LOL!!

The only card I can share today is this one as all the rest have been orders .. .. but I do like it.   I particularly love the little purse in the bottom right hand corner .. .. that one is my fav!!  (I hope my lovely Sis is reading this .. perhaps she will make me one just like it LOL!!).

This used:

Image:  Hero Arts "LL729" Little Purses (this is a set of six little individual stamps)
Backing Paper:  Aimee Asher
Sentiment:  Computer Generated
Go Kreate Die:  Scalloped Squares
Nestabilities:  Classic Squares
Crystal Stickles
Ribbon and gem from the Stash Box

Oh dear, my card looks a bit on the squiff .. .. sorry about that .. .. but as my Mum would say "A blind man would be glad to see it"!!!.

I have still got a bit to do this evening so need to crack on .. .. I seem to have been extra busy this week .. .. I think it must be something to do with being a bit lazy over the bank holiday weekend and watching Toy Story 3!!  Serves me right!!

Catch you again tomorrow.

We left sunny Yorkshire to venture into Lancashire and ended up with a cloudy day, just typical. As we came home we ran back into the gorgeous weather. That'll teach us to venture over the Pennines!!!!!
I hope you manage to see some of it tomorrow but your card is lovely. I certainly agree with the friends bit!!!!
Have a great weekend.
