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.

Sunday 24 May 2020


Hi Everyone

I hope your Sunday has been enjoyable.  

The day was a bit rubbish here weather wise at the start of the day, but by late afternoon the sun actually made an appearance.

Today it was time for using up more snippets.  But rather than using a mish-mash of papers I grabbed a paper pad and used the snippets that were tucked in the back .. .. then I picked one of my sketches and made this:

This used:

Image:  Penny Black "2178J" Hello Present
Sentiment:  Digistamp Boutique clear stamp set (sadly they are no longer trading)
Backing Papers:  First Edition Paper "Sweet Nothings"
Nail Heads
My Trusty Sewing Machine

and Sketch number forty four from my sketch library .. .. but I decided not to add the ribbon bow .. .. it just didn't look right with there being a bow on the image already.

I am slowly working my way through using all of the new ones I added a few weeks ago.

If anyone would like to use any of my sketches then please feel free to do so.  You can see them all on the tab at the top of my blog.

Provided all goes to plan I'll catch you again tomorrow, but in the meantime stay safe and have a good bank holiday Monday. 

I hope you manage to find some crafty time to enjoy at some stage.
