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 Thursday has gone well.

Just a quick post from me today using an image that I always enjoy colouring. 

I have a box into which I put spare stamped / printed out images and I love delving into the box when I am in the mood for a serious colouring session.  They then move into a "coloured and waiting to be turned into a card" box.  

This coloured image made its way onto a card front this evening, but to be honest I have printed it out so large that there isn't a lot you can do in the background.  It is one large, fun, cute image!!

This used:

Image: LOTV "You are my Sunshine"
Sentiment:  LOTV "Everything's Better Sentiments"
Backing Papers:  DCWV "The Gilded Paper Stack" (a very old and never ending beautiful stack)
Crystal Glamour Dust
My Trusty Sewing Machine

and that is me for today.

Short and sweet.
