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

Happy Saturday!!

Well how early am I today?  This must be a world record for me .. .. and it isn't even a scheduled post LOL!!!

I have to admit that I haven't actually made this creation this morning though . .. I made it yesterday in preparation as I knew this morning would just fly away with me.

I am going to have a very rare and exciting day .. .. a day with some lovely blog pals .. .. and I still need to be getting some bits together to take with me so had better not spend too long here waffling!!

My card is also going to be entered into the Ready Teddy Go Challenge for August where "anything goes" .. .. but of course you do need a bear to feature on your creation too.  Thanks Sally for reminding me about the challenge. xx

So here we go:

This used:

Image:  Teddy Bo "Teddy BoBea Tabs"
Sentiment:  Pink Petticoat
Backing Papers:  Pink Petticoat (yes, I am now round to colour 3 of the new 8 .. .. "Cafe Creme")
Martha Stewart Punch:  Lace Heart
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Diamond Stickles
ProMarkers and Chalk
Button, Ribbon and Pearls from the Stash Box

OK .. .. time to make myself respectable.

See you tomorrow with my snippet make!  Have a lovely Saturday everyone.
