My photo
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 weather was a bit more exciting than mine was today!

The other day when I purchased that lovely Christmas wreath download I got some others alongside .. .. .. using a 30% off voucher that was available if you purchased five images.  

The problem wasn't deciding which five I would like .. .. there were lots of beauties .. .. the hard part was deciding which five I would like the most.

This image was one of my "must haves" simply because I knew I would really enjoy colouring it (even though it is available as a pre-coloured image):

This used:

Image:  WhimsyDreamsClipart:  "Whimsical Flowers"
Sentiment:  LOTV Embossed Labels
Backing Papers:  First Edition Papers "Blank Canvas"
Spellbinder Circle Dies
Nail Heads
My Trusty Sewing Machine

and that is my share for today.  I am already thinking what other colours I want to use on my next play with this image.  

Take care everyone .. .. .. especially if you are in any of the scary COVID danger zones .. .. .. though to be fair any of us could be without even knowing.  

Stay safe.

Hi Jules,
Love the autumnal colours and a beautiful card. A gorgeous image and an all year round image. Love it!!
We are very low on the Covid-19 chart, with very few new patients. Norwich is where the most of them are.
So keep safe and keep safe.
Love and big hugs,
