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

I hope you all had a good weekend .. .. as usual things were pretty "full on" here in the House of Hearts .. .. but it was all very enjoyable.

I did at least get chance to play with Sketch Twenty Two and created this:

This used:

Image:  Penny Black "3947K" Day-dreams
Sentiment:  Elzybells  (sadly no longer trading)
Backing Papers:  WeRMemory Keepers "Love Notes" (clearance bargain from TKMax!!)
Enamel Dots from Hobbycraft
X-Cut Corner Rounding Punch
Diamond, Starry Night and Fruit Punch Stickles
Glossy Accents
Ribbon from my crafty stash box
and then Sketch number twenty two from my little sketch library (feel free to use it - along with any of the others from my library if you would like to).

I am also entering the Penny Black Saturday Challenge where this month "anything goes" (provided it is Penny Black related of course).

Hoping to be here with Teeny Tiny Tuesday this week .. .. so fingers crossed for tomorrow.
