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 everyone's Sunday has gone well .. .. especially for all those Dad's out there.  I hope you have all been spoilt .. .. more than you normally are.   How convenient that football has returned to the TV screen to help you enjoy your special weekend even more! LOL!!!

Like most people, I am aware of quite a few folk who are not 100% themselves at the moment.  Some are just a bit "off colour", some that haven't been well but are thankfully on the road to recovery, and sadly some who are very, very poorly.

Not all of these people are folk I have ever met, some are people I have come into contact with via my blog and we have become "cyber buddies". 

So today I have made a card for dedicating to anyone who is suffering at the moment in one way or another:

 This used:  

Image:  Power Poppy "Flowering Branches
Sentiment:  Computer Generated using font "Dragonfly Pro Regular"
Glossy Accents
Tumbled Glass Distress Ink
Papers from my ever increasing snippet mountain

I have the lovely Meg to thank for pointing me in the direction of Power Poppy after seeing this lovely creation on her blog .. .. .. and I was even happier to see that when I checked them out there was a sale happening .. .. .. so I was able to indulge a little more than I normally would.  

The images are so beautifully drawn, and there is so much inspiration showing how to use the images that I think I may have to pop back before the sale ends!!  Tee hee!!!  

So that is me for today.

I'll catch you again soon.

Oh this is stunning, what a beautiful card, I love those colours. Poppy Power are amazing!! The images are fantastic over there. Looking forward to seeing other makes from you using their images. Hope alls well and you arent all of a sudden rushed off your feet with wedding fever now that restrictions are reducing down south. Seems strange as we dont even have the non essential stores open yet!!! Take Care, Hazel xx
