My photo
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.

Hi Everyone

So sorry I am late .. .. but today has been one mammoth and exciting day.

As some of you will know I am preparing for a Wedding Fayre on the 20th March and have been working hard at getting samples etc together.

There is still a lot to do but I am enjoying every second .. .. with the occasional nervous panic as to whether I will have everything done that I want to do.  Don't know why I am worrying though because this is only the first .. .. I can always keep working on new designs etc for the next ones.

Anyway, what am I excited about .. .. .. well I should soon have the beginnings of a website for my Wedding Stationery .. yay!!!

I have been busy providing my "setter upper" with the things he needs (I bet he thinks I am well thick as I don't understand the slightest thing about the technical side of how websites work).  But I have been sending him the things he needs and hopefully I shall have something for potential customers to view in a few days.

Lots of stuff I still need to work on but I am told we can add all the other things as we go along as and when they are ready (oh I do hope he has a lot of patience LOL!!).

I have flattened the battery on my camera whilst trying to take professional looking photographs of some of the wedding stationery I have done so far .. .. just waiting to hear if what I have provided are good enough or whether I need to start again.

So, I am now ready to share my first Wedding Stationery photograph with you .. .. I hope you likey, likey??!?

I am not going to go into what I used .. .. other than a lot of love and care.

So now at least you can see what I have been working on whilst not visiting and commenting on your lovely blogs.  I hope I am forgiven.

So other than all my website work, photography session, ordering business cards, working on my wording for some handouts, (oh and a bit of housework) all I have produced today is one card!!! 

But no card could compare to the excitement of my wedding stationery so that is what I decided to share today. 

Enjoy what is left of your evening everyone.
