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

A bit late tonight .. .. sorry!

So I won't mess about but will get straight on to my share of the day.

This used:

Image:  Stampendous "Daisy Stem Trio"
Sentiment:  Docrafts "With Love"
Backing Papers:  GCD Studios "Tea Time" (pink papers) and Pink Petticoat for the black and white
My Trust Sewing Machine
Martha Stewart Punch:  Lace Heart (now there's a clue LOL!!)
Ribbon and Cord

I hope everyone has had a good day.  It has been beautiful sunshine here today .. .. I hope it continues as I have a couple of brides getting married soon.

We are at a wedding fayre on Sunday and it would be lovely for there to be some sunshine then.

I bet they will get lots of brides visiting this time as they are running a prize draw for all the brides that register on arrival.  The prize being free venue hire for 2013!!  That is one brilliant prize as the venue is gorgeous.

If you fancy a peep you can find the venue here.  I love it .. .. and if I was getting married to Mr Heart all over again this is where I would like to have my reception!!

Me again Jules, I did leave a comment on your card yesterday but it didn't seem to want to publish. It was a long comment & I forgot what I'd written but I loved your card especially the way you stamped & embossed the flowers. Also, good on you for taking that pic, now you'll always remember that day!
