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.

A CARD FOR A FRIEND

Hi Everyone

Well here I am at last with my up-date from the weekend.

We had a fantastic time meeting lots of people .. .. ..  both old friends and now new ones.

My lovely Sis sold lots of her bags and I sold lots of cards.  It was my best year yet!!

The weather was very mixed and finished late Sunday afternoon with the most torrential rainstorm you could imagine.  It was coming down so heavy that when you looked out of the window it looked like fog!!!

But it didn't dampen anyones enthusiasm .. .. in fact it made the place even more jolly as people dived in for cover!!

So a good time was had by all and now we are keeping our fingers crossed that it is run again next year.

Now round to a birthday card I made for a good friend's birthday yesterday.  As you may guess from the image he is Scottish.






This used:

Image:  Teddy Bo
Backing Papers:   Raspberry Road
Sentiment:  Pink Petticoat
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
ProMarkers
Cord from the Stash Box

So now the Festival is over for another year you would imagine I am sitting back and putting my feet up for a day or two?  .. .. .. .. but no .. .. .. we are now preparing for a wedding fayre we are doing on the 2nd October so it is all systems go again .. .. but in wedding mode now!!

So I may still be "AWOL" on the commenting front for a few days to come .. .. but I am trying I promise.

Catch you again tomorrow.

Love
