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

At last .. .. .. another new rectangular sketch has made its way into my sketch library.

I am really enjoying working with rectangular shaped cards at the moment, so the more new sketches I can get added to my collection the better.

So here we go with Rectangular Sketch Number Six

and here are a couple of cards I have made using it.

This used:

Julie Hickey "JH1041" Birthday Background Stamp
Sentiment Die:  Hunkydory Moonstone "MSTONE004" Framed With Love
My Favorite Things Blue Prints 14 Die Set
Backing Papers:  Make and Create "Fresh Feelings"
White Embossing Powder
Dewdrop Ink Pads
My Trusty Sewing Machine

and I also turned the sketch on its side to make this little creation, using the same design papers, Penny Black "2062K" Fish are Jumpin stamp and a computer generated sentiment.

and that is me for today.

Please feel free to use any of my sketches if you fancy playing with them.  

There is a tab for square sketches and a separate one for rectangular sketches at the top of my blog, but I still have a long, long way to go if the rectangular ones are going to catch up with the square ones.

Catch you again soon.

Yours does look like it could be fun foam on the picture.Great Julie Hickey background stamp too ad the second card is yet another masterpiece from you I really don't know how you do it...Fabulous! xx
