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 Jules, lovely candy from Handy Hippo - very generous of them - and I've managed to comply with the rules just in time so I might just be in with a wee shout - I won't hold my breath though. Someone's going to have a lovely time playing with all those crafty goodies :) Elizabeth x
