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 week has got off to a good start.

Once back from Mum's this evening I managed a quick crafty play and produced this:

This used:

Image:  LOTV:  If Friends Were Flowers
Sentiment:  LOTV:  Sketchy Wishes
Backing Papers from my snippet mountain  (trying really hard to reduce these drastically)
Corner Rounding Punch
Crystal Glamour Dust

and that is me for today.

Many thanks for the lovely comments and emails regarding my first sewing tutorial yesterday.  So chuffed that some folk feel I may be able to help them to start sewing on their creations.

I will be back tomorrow with Step Two.

Until then I will love and leave you.
