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 have had a good Monday.

Here rather late so I will jump straight into it and share a card I have put together this evening using an image from my "coloured up and ready to use" box.  It has been getting nice and full recently so it is time to start turning some of those images into cards!!

This used:

Image:  Penny Black "4130K" You make me bob!
Sentiment:  Digistamp Boutique "Everyday Sentiments" Clear Polymer Stamp Set
Backing Papers: Avery Elle "Everyday Collection"
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
My Trusty Sewing Machine

and that is me for today!

A good day .. .. because I got to take Mum around all her favourite shops!  A big leap forward in her recovery.

I will hopefully make it here tomorrow with a teeny tiny creation!

Penny Black stamps were my first love, I thought I knew all the cute hedgies but I've never seen this one Jules. What an adorable image and a lovely card.
Pleased to hear your Mum is getting out and about.
