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

Well .. .. tomorrow is wedding anniversary day in the House of Hearts.

How many years have we managed?

Well believe it or not 37 !!

We were married very young .. .. and advised by many that we were far too young to be getting married and for it to last!!   LOL!!!  What did they know!!

I have just finished my card ready for handing over in the morning.

This used:

Image and Sentiment:  Lili of The Valley (chosen especially last week at the NEC)
Backing Papers:  Raspberry Road (I think).  Sorry they were hanging about waiting to be used and just seemed to go together
X-Cut Punch:  Heart and Kisses
Martha Stewart Punch:  Heart
Nestabilities:  Classic Circle and Scalloped Circle
White Gel Pen
Flower, Pearls and Cord from the Stash Box

Although we were young when we met and were married we weren't THIS young!!.

A bit of a cute card for a chap I know, but I am sure he will love it (or he will say he does anyway LOL!!).

So a quick (and hopefully early) share tomorrow ahead of a romantic dinner for two.

Catch you soon
