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 Thursday! Another ultra fast week here!  But as they say "time flies wen you are having fun".

Same old story from me .. .. nothing made this week that I can share .. .. but I can show you some makes that I made a while ago that are now peeping at me on the supermarket shelves in the form of this lovely magazine bundle.

I really enjoyed this commission and got to work on the "cat and dog" theme side of the magazine using all the scrummy papers, toppers and last but no means least the stamp set which I really fell in love with.   I wll be using those cute cat and dog images plenty that's for sure.

Here are a few of my favourite makes:

This was my favourite
for a cross-over card commission

These were my favourites made with the scrummy stamps 
and using watercolour crayons 
- along with a cute gift box

Then last but not least a few projects 
using the image and sentiment toppers

.. .. and for those of you that aren't into cats and dogs the other half of the magazine features flowers and fairies.

So there we go .. .. lots of hearts for you to find today .. .. and proof that when my blog is lacking some action it doesn't mean my fingers aren't working away!!

Take care and have a great day .. .. .. and if anyone is in the mood for chopping up lots and lots and lots of card ready for printing wedding invitation bundles onto then I have a mountain of that sitting looking at me and saying "when is it my turn to come out and play?" LOL!!
