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 Wednesday.

I hope you have all had a good day.

Things have been continuing to improve here with Mum .. .. thank you all for your well wishes.  Mum has improved so much it looks like I might be able to at least start sleeping in my own bed again .. . and vacate Mum's settee.

I also have some other fabby news to share.  I am now officially a fully fledged DT member with the lovely Sally-Ann over at Digistamp Boutique .. .. so to celebrate I made this little creation:

This used:

Image:  Digistamp Boutique:  Yoga Alyssa
Sentiment:  Computer Generated using font "Inkston Sans"
Backing Papers:  Tinker N Co "Modern Kate"
Ribbon from my Stash Box

Still working on very limited supplies here .. .. and missing my sewing machine .. .. but did bring my printer to Mum's this week which has been great to have .. .. other than it not having a proper home.  It has lived on top of the freezer, a blanket box and on the floor so far!!!  LOL!!!

I am also going to enter my creation into the following challenge

The Ribbon Girl Challenge - where the theme is "anything goes"

Take care everyone.  Hopefully catch you all again soon.
