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 been going well.

I am here today to use an image I fell in with over at Sandra's Etsy Store.  The ones that were on the website were pre-coloured images (beautifully coloured) but I wanted to colour my own and asked Sandra if she would be willing to release the image uncoloured.  Yay!!  Sandra said yes and added the image on Tuesday .. .. thank you big time Sandra!!!  I love it and will be using it lots xxx.

Here is what I made with it:

This used:

Image:  Whimsy Dreams Clipart "May in Black"  (it comes as a single and double image so more ideas lined up)
Sentiment:  LOTV "Embossed Labels"
Backing Paper:  From the snippet pile
Crafter's Companion Edge'ables "Renaissance"
Memory Box Dies:  "Kaleidoscope Butterfly" and "Moonlight Butterfly"
Distress Ink Pad:  Milled Lavender

So that is me for today.

I'll catch you again tomorrow .. .. ..  life should be a little calmer over the next few days so hopefully there will be some extra crafting time.
