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 did you get any rain?  We were promised some .. .. but all I can say is it was a good job I ignored the forecast and watered my crops this morning anyway as we got next to none!!

Having said that it is a little overcast now so perhaps it is going to be the best sort of rain .. .. that which happens whilst we are asleep!!  LOL!!!

I have had a lovely busy day today and as usual the time has flown.

Here is my share for today .. ..  not my favourite make of the day .. .. but I am not allowed to share that one!!

This used:

Image:  Charmed Cards "Madison with Attitude"
Backing Paper:  Digichick Boutique "Joyful Heart Designs"
Sentiment:  Pink Petticoat
Ribbon and buttons from the Stash Box

There isn't too much to this card as the backing paper was so delicious it didn't really need much else.

So that is me for today .. ..

Catch you again tomorrow .. .. when I will be in a rush ahead of The Apprentice.
