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 am aready round to my second GDT card with Penny Black Saturday.

Half way through already :-(

This week the theme is "DELICIOUS".

Well in all honesty I think that should mean I could use any of the Penny Black stamps I own because for me they are "all" delicious .. .. but in the end I decided I had better use something that includes something delicious to eat.

What better than a birthday cupcake?

This used:

Image:  Penny Black "1665K" Cheescake Party
Backing Papers:  GCD Studios "Tea Time"
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Leone Em Pty Punch:  Ash Branch
Woodware Punches:  Daisy
Brad and ribbons from the stash box
and a bit of chalk for the rosy cheeks .. .. .. they must be a little too close to the candle and it is making their cheeks glow!!  LOL!!!

Please pop over and see what the DT have made for inspiration .. .. they are such a talented bunch of ladies and you will see their lovely creations here.

I hope that you all have a great weekend and I'll see you tomorrow with my snippet makes and snippet register.

Another gorgeous card - love the image. I've just received a couple of gorgeous PB stamps today - your fault so get out that 'you're to blame' sticker again. You lured me over to the Handy Hippo site and I succumbed - in fact I became a drooling fanatic and only just stopped myself buying out the store - well, I exagerate, but you get the picture :) Thank goodness for the discount! Anyway, it's fun factory in the craft space today - I'm using up some leftovers on an alteration project and I'll be playing with those new stamps later - maybe a snippet card will be the result.
