My photo
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, whilst I have been busy completing Christmas and Wedding makes the stocks of my general cards have been depleting and are now starting to look very sorry for themselves .. .. so time to make amends before the boxes are completely empty!!!

So, just for a change tonight there is no Christmas card LOL!!!  Just a quick and simple birthday card.

This used:

Image:  The Stamp Fairy
Sentiment:  Woodware Stamps "Must Have Retro Words"
Backing Papers:  Nitwits
Nestabilities:  Lacey Squares
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Diamond Stickles (still wet on my photograph LOL!!!)

So that is me for today. 

Quick and simple!!

Time now for a quick bath ahead of jacket spuds with baked beans and a sprinkling of cheese on top .. .. yummy scrummy!!!!

Catch you again tomorrow.

More loveliness from you, Jules. Always a pleasure to come by. This cheeky chappy is uber cute! Faves for me though are your Christmas Thank You (for auntie) - oh so elegant; with Henry and his wreath coming in a very close second. Great stitching in this recent batch (would you like to come by and show me how to thread my sewing machine?!!!) AND great top tip with the cocktail stick and ink. A super worthwhile visit! Big hugs, Lesley
