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

My oh my . .. I thought I was never getting here!!

Roll on Sunday when it is too late to do any more in preparation for the Wedding Fayre .. .. by Sunday all I will have to do is arrange all my goodies and stand with my lovely Sis chatting with lots of happy couples!!

Still so much I want to do  .. . but hey!! The week is young.  It is only Tuesday night .. .. eeekkk!!!  LOL!!!

Tonight's share is my DT card for the Get Funky! Challenge .. .. if you fancy joining in then the theme this month is "Birthday Fun".

You can see my post and the rules for the challenge over on the Get Funky Challenge Blog .. .. plus there is the monthly freebie there too!!!

Here is my make.  The backing paper is actually a digi image that I have repeated and stretched lots, and lots and lots.

This used: 

Funky Hand:  Papercraft Factory CD "Happy, Happy Birthday"
Woodware Punches:  Daisy (various sizes)
Leone Em Pty Punch:  Ash Branch
Glamour Dust
Cord from the Stash Box

You will be pleased to know that I found my exam certificates .. .. all neatly stored away in a display binder never expecting to see the light of day again!!

The job I applied for has disappeared off the hospital website even though the closing date wasn't until the 3rd October .. .. they did say this could happen if they had sufficient applicants .. .. so clearly lots of other folk were also keeping their eye out for the elusive administration jobs there.

Lots to crack on with so I will disappear and catch you again tomorrow.
