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

Well my Monday has been on the busy side .. .. I hope yours has been a good one!

I spent quite a bit of the day with Mum and then once home created a card using a very old stamp .. .. but one I love to colour:

This used:

Image:  Stamps Happen "#60058" Bees
Sentiment:  Printed direct onto the backing paper using font "Inkston Brush"
Backing Paper:  My Lovely Studio "Honeycomb"
Metallic Cord
Crystal Glamour Dust
My Trusty Sewing Machine

and that is me for today.  Very late to the party I'm afraid .. .. but better late than never.

I don't think the weather is going to be quite so good tomorrow but I am not complaining.  The garden needs a real good soaking and I have a huge pile of work to get through!!

Hopefully I will find time for at least a teeny tiny make though!

Take care and stay super safe.

Sorry I haven't been around for a bit but my knees were so bad I couldn't sit at my desk!! Can just sit now for about 20 mins. Along with having to accept losing both husband and wife neighbours, passing away within 1 week. Their daughter is my 'bestie' here and we are all devastated.

Love the gorgeous little bees and the car washer!!

Hope your Mum and you are keeping well and safe in this awful world we are living in.
Big hugs and love, Carol S.xxxx
