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

I thought I was never getting here tonight!!

It has been one of those evenings where the phone hasn't stopped ringing.  Everytime I put it down it rang again .. .. .. until eventually on my last call the battery was going flat and kept beeping in my ear!!  It was so lovely to catch up with everyone.

Thankfully I managed to end the last call without it dying completely!!  Hence it is now back on charge!!  LOL!!!

So I won't mess about tonight.  Here is my share of the day (nice and orange to keep my buddy Sandra company!!).

Tee hee!!! Guess who wrote her post upstairs and accidentally published before adding the pictures downstairs?!!!!  That would be me!!  LOL!!

Is anyone else having their pictures rejected by Mr Blogger's server and then accepted when you try again .. .. or is that just me as well?!!!!

This used: 

Backing Paper:  My Minds Eye "Spring Papers" Free with a magazine ages ago
Image:  Pink Petticoat
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder "Swiss Dots"
Cuttlebug Die "Flowers"
Leone Em Pty Punch:  Ash Branch
Sakura Gelly Roll Pen
Seam binding from the Stash Box

and that is me!!!

Off now for a very late meal of Spag Bol and Garlic Bread!!!  Yummy!!! 

Well after all that catching up on the phone is should be cooked!!

Catch you again tomorrow.
