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 your weekend has been a good one .. .. unfortunately mine hasn't been as long as I would have liked .. .. but then I am never satisfied.  My days always seem far too short.

I did grab a few bits that I had stashed away though to make this little creation today, all snippets and bits of card piled up in my snippet mountain.

This used:

Image:  Penny Black "3786" Crush
Sentiment:  Digistamp Boutique Clear Stamp (Sadly no longer trading)
Papers and card from my mountain of snippets
Sizzix Embossing Folder "662606" Botanicals
Stamps to Die For "UMS633" Shaded Peony and matching die
Silver Gilding Wax
Circle Die
Washi Tape
Glossy Accents
My Trusty Sewing Machine

and that is me for today with apologies to everyone who was a little spooked by my cards of yesterday!   Sorry maties! xx 

Stay safe everyone and fingers crossed that we are starting back, with tiny steps, on the road to what we used to know .. .. and take for granted.

Over here, they are placing heart designs in the windows to thank the medical staff and others that are essential to keeping the countries running.

I keep saying I will use my stash of embossing folders. I need to go and sit on the naughty step. Hey, I wonder if that is where mojo is hiding!
Lovely fun card. Hugs Mrs A.
