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 start to your weekend.

Can you believe that it is very nearly March!!

I feel that February 2020 is going to go down in history here as the most productive and busiest month in my life ever!!  Lots sorted both on the work and personal front .. .. but I am right up to the wire in finishing my five Christmas cards for February and have only just finished them!  Two teeny tiny ones (3.5 inches square).

These used: 

Image and Sentiment:  Pink Petticoat (now known as The Lovely Studio) "Ice Christmas"
Backing Papers:  Winter Wonderland Paper Pad from The Works
Unbranded Circular Dies from Ebay
My Trusty Sewing Machine
A little bit of chalk for those rosy cheeks!!

So that is me for today .. .. with 10 Christmas cards in my stock box.

Before I go I would like to say thank you to everyone who left lovely comments and sent emails regarding my post of yesterday .. .. .. I am pleased people thought it might be useful.
