A very warm welcome to my teeny, tiny part of the huge world of blogging. This is where I am hoping to 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 always 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.

Yes, I am envious .. .. ...  envious of the image in my card  .. .. I just fancy sitting in a chair and covering my eyes for 40 winks!!  LOL!!!

But no time for that .. .. things to do!!!

Here is my little share of the day

This used:

Image:  Papermania It's a Man's World "Couch Potato"
Sentiment:  Hobby Art "CS016D" General Greetings
Backing Papers:  Footballs = Trimcraft "Smirk for Him"  Newspaper = Pink Petticoat
Diamond Stickles

I made this card for someone a few weeks ago and loved it that much that I decided to make it again (you know .. .. the same but different!!).

So the time has come for me to duck out of blogland for a while.  I have so much to do in preparation for the wedding fayre on the 20th March as well as orders and DT work that I need to be sensible and use my time productively.   Mother's Day is only just around the corner!!

I will still try and post something every day .. .. so you can still play "hunt the heart" ... .. .. but I know I am not going to have chance to return any of your lovely comments if you choose to leave any.  Sorry if I am a let down!!

I am going to allow myself to play with my snippets and share those on Sunday and will have a hop around then .. . but in the meantime I will only be visiting entries to the challenges I am a DT member on.  I am sure that you will understand.

I promise once my Wedding Fayre goodies are ready I will share a photograph of it all set up. 

Tomorrow my lovely Sis and I are off to find some lighting for our display and perhaps a few props.  We are then going to set up tables to replicate what we have hired and arrange all our makes to see how much more we need to create.

Oh I am so excited!!!

Catch you again soon

I thought you had me there for a minute Jules but ......... I found the heart, lol! Smashing card, it would be just about perfect for my OH at the weekends but don't tell him I said that!

Have fun with all your fayre prep. You have every right to be excited and we'll still be here when it's over.

Oh Jules

The wedding fayre sounds very interesting - wishing your sis and you good luck with that and can't wait to see the photos! Great card above - and I found the heart!!!

On a separate note I received my portable photo booth thingy yesterday and have done a post with a link back to you on my blog (I know you are busy at present so not expecting you to comment! but just wanted to let you know!) Haven't used it properly yet - got to find somewhere suitable to set it up!

Anyway take care and look forward to you being back in blogland soon.
