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

Another weekend for us to enjoy - thankfully the sunshine made an appearance which was so lovely as the weather has been quite disappointing here recently.  Although all the rain has made the garden, lawn and water butts much happier.

Lock-down is definitely easier when the weather is being kind don't you think?

Anyway, here with a card I have made for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge where the theme for the month is always "anything goes as long as it includes Penny Black goodies" but with an optional twist this time of adding "spots and/or stripes".

This used:

Image:  Penny Black "2358J" Song for You (now discontinued)
Sentiment:  Computer Generated
Backing Papers:  First Edition Paper "Blank Canvas"
Music Notes used a stamp set from The Works
My Trusty Sewing Machine

and that is me for today.

Enjoy your Sunday when it arrives.

A lovely cute card - such a sweet PB image.

It's been a lot cooler and wetter here as well, but it has helped to prevent the large groups congregating on the beach for parties!

Oh WOW, I just love that image, never seen it before, pity it is now discontinued as I would have rushed out and bought it (well not rushed out, but searched the web). A really fantastic card.
