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.

WITH LOVE MUM

Hi Everyone

I hope you are having a good weekend.

Mine started off with a good old tidy up and a visit to the loft to rescue some of the display equipment I need for the wedding fayre tomorrow.

Just about everything is ready and lined up by the front door.  I just need to print off some more price lists and grab all my card and ribbon samples and then I think I am there.

Not sure what to expect from tomorrow as it is a new venue for us.  But hopefully it will get our names around town a little more.  We aren't looking for any immediate work as we both have a good few orders in our books .. .. but it would be nice to see some people who are getting married later this year or early next.

Anyway, today's quick make is here:





This used:

Image:  Stampendous! "CRR112" Ranunculus Field
Sentiment:  Personal Impressions (A mixture of two sets .. "Happy Birthday" set and "To A Dear" set.
Backing Paper:  Wild Rose Studio "Gorgeous Ginghams"
Aqua Markers
Diamond Stickles
Glamour Dust
Pearls from the Stash Box
Ribbon from the "naughty drawer" LOL!!!

.. .. .. and that is me for today.  Excuse my painting skills  .. .. they leave a bit to be desired .. .. .. but I'm not giving up without a fight!!

As I promised yesterday I will get round to catching up with everyone eventually but at the moment it is all work .. .. and no blog hopping!!

Will let you know how the fayre goes tomorrow when I get home.

Enjoy your Saturday evening and have a good Sunday.  I'm off to print out those price lists!

Love

Another stunner Jules - your painting is flipping brilliant! You shook me by hopping into the playground to say Hi this morning - bless you. I'm still trying to take good care of it and apart from breaking up the occasional rumpus it's going good. Hope the Wedding Fayre goes really well today! Love, Di xx
