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.

Good morning everyone

Well here I am with my "penultimate" GDT card for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge.

There were lots of lovely entries into last week's challenge .. .. loads of cupcakes to be seen!!  LOL!!!

This week the theme is "Friendship" and here is my creation:

This used:

Image:  Penny Black "2288K" Furry Embrace
Sentiment:  Penny Black "1748F" To My Friend
Backing Paper:  Funky Hand Papercraft Factory "Happy, Happy Birthday"
Woodware Punch:  Scalloped Oval
Shrink Plastic
Self Adhesive Pearls
Torn organza fabric for the bow
Flowers and pearls from the Stash Box

I have just realised that all of my GDT cards have been pink!!!   Whoops"""  Oh well, my next and final GDT creation next week "will not be pink" that's for sure!

Have a great weekend everyone.  I hope you all find time for a little bit of crafting at some stage.

My snippet post for tomorrow has been scheduled so hopefully Mr Blogger is kind to me and lets it make an appearance.

Take care.
