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.

I am trying hard to get myself into some more good habits .. .. one being to get back to making a card for my blog first thing in a morning before I get sucked into the day.   I try to keep a box of images I have already coloured stashed away, which means half of the work has been done already .. .. .. so no excuse really.

Baby cards are always in demand and are something that never stay in my stock box for more than two minutes .. .. so today I have opted for a baby girl card.

This used:

Image:  Digital image from Lili of the Valley "Cosy Pram"
Sentiment:  Computer generated using fonts "Aracne Condensed Regular" and  "Sweetheart Script"
Backing Papers:  The Lovely Studio (used to be called Pink Petticoat)
Quickie Glue Pen and Crystal Glamour Dust
Ribbon and Metallic Cord
Little heart charm .. .. I was given a little jam jar full of them at the Christmas table one year .. .. sadly the jar is slowly emptying.  Boo hoo!!
Nail Heads
My Trusty Sewing Machine

and that is me for today.

Time to get the production line going for completing a set of place names for a bride who is now getting very excited that her special day will soon be here!

Take care everyone and have a good day.
