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 Monday has been kind to you.

Quite a nice bit of sunshine here today after a very cold and frosty start.  

So for my fourth quick and easy card needed to be one where I didn't need me to use my stamping platform because I have been busy making lots of the card I posted yesterday and I didn't want to remove the stamps.

So today I went for a super cheap wreath image which I re-coloured brown and added lots of glitter stickles to.

This used:

Image:  Huckleberry Hearts "Wreath Clipart"  (eight different styles of wreath to work with in the set and super cheap at the moment)
Sentiment:  Computer Generated using font "Vanilla Shot"
Magenta Stickles
My Trusty Sewing Machine

Not quite a teeny tiny card,  just over 4 inches square and I made matching envelopes from thick brown paper so there is no need to try and track some of those down.

.. .. .. and that is me for today.  A little bit earlier than normal so hopefully chance for a catch up of your lovely blogs before I head up that wooden hill.

Take care everyone and keep safe.
