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 Jules, been quite a while since I left a comment, though I always browse your blog. I have a few of those Forever Friends stamps in my crafty stash, including the one you used. Super cute. Love the pop of red and green against the muted background.

Hope you're staying safe, alert and sane in these unusual times :-) Take care, hugs, Pauline xx
