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 all had a good day.  Mine has been nice and productive.

It started off by having a little spend over at Digistamp Boutique .. .. which means I have a few new images to play with.

Here is what I made with one of them and this is my favourite make of the day (in fact I made two of them LOL!!):

This used:

Image:  Digistamp Boutique "Tom and Molly Summer Fun"
Sentiment:  Hobby Art Clear "CS016D" General Greetings
Backing Papers:  Pink Petticoat
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Glossy Accents (on the fish and Tom's sunglasses .. .. if you can see it)

This card has finished up super bright and cheery and I love it!!!

Time now for a bit of snap ... .. guess what? .. ... ..  yep .. .. more lettuce LOL!!!

We are having a night off tomorrow though and are going to tuck into Spag Bol with The Apprentice!!!.

Big Baby Boy went to the "Your Fired" show again this weekend .. .. but he didn't see the show we will see tomorrow.  Apparently it is on this Friday too (which is the one he saw) and then the final is Sunday!!!  What an exciting few days I am going to have!!

Oh the advantages of living in London (apart from being on hand for the Blade Rubber Stamp shop!).

Have a lovely evening everyone.

I will catch you again tomorrow.
