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 I made it after all.

Mr Electric man didn't take too long so I had time to make a quick share alongside a couple of orders.

I can't show you the orders but I can show you my little stitchy make:

This used:

Backing Papers:  Funky Hand Papercraft Factory "Colour Me Happy"
Image and Sentiment:  Forever Friends
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Pinking Shears
Sizzix Die:  Stars
Glamour Dust
Ribbons from the Stash Box  (or to be more honest .. .. from the top drawer in the spare bedroom LOL!!)

.. .. and there you go.

I now need to go and re-load the wall unit which has made its way back into its rightful place and try to make everywhere look respectable ahead of some lovely visitors arriving tomorrow.  I feel an early "get up" might be needed in the morning to finish off!!  LOL!!!
I will get to spend a lovely day catching up with a very special friend and my hubby gets to go to the first football game of the new season with my friend's husband (who is also a special friend).

Then once hubby's team have lost he will come home and we will then be off out for an Indian meal.

So I might be a little bit AWOL on the visiting front I'm afraid but I will catch up with everyone eventually.
