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 Monday got a sparkly new week off to a good start for you.

I spent the afternoon and early evening with my Mum, getting her fed and watered and organised ready for another week. 

Once home, and after a walk with Mr Heart, my crafty play created this:

This used:

Image:  Stampendous! Cling Stamp "CRR164" Tree Poem
Distress Ink Pads:  Tumbled Glass, Tattered Rose, Squeezed Lemonade, Shaded Lilac, Fossilized Amber and Peeled Pain
Spellbinder Circle Die
Backing Paper and Card all from the Snippet Mountain
My Trusty Sewing Machine

The image was stamped using Onyx black Versafine Ink and was then heat embossed with clear embossing powder prior to distressing.

No sentiment on this one.  It seemed a shame to cover up any of the poem .. .. it will go into my box with a plain insert as I feel it would make a good notelet for times when you want to send a card with a personal message inside.

Catch you again tomorrow folks.

Always handy to have a few cards without sentiments, lovely colouring on this one. I do love a bit of text as a design element
