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

I hope you have all had a good day. 

Busy day on the wedding stationery front for me and a meeting with a lovely happy couple this evening to design the table plan ready for their "big day".

This has left tonight's share needing to be super quick and easy .. .. but even so I love it.

This used:

Image:  Penny Black "4060K" Hedge-word
Script Image:  Memory Box "G1838" Vintage Dreams
Backing Paper:  Nitwits
Martha Stewart Punch:  Traditional Scallop
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads

and that is it!!!

I showed Mr Heart my card and he was a bit worried about the puzzle the hedgies are trying to complete.  He says I need to black out some more square LOL!!!

This is the first time I have used the Script Image Stamp.  I bought it from the NEC in March .. ..picking it up and putting it down so many times during the course of the day it was unbelievable .. .. but eventually I parted with my hard earned cash.  So pleased I succumbed now.   I love script things .. .. be them papers or stamps.

OK .. bath for me now.  I really am running very late :-(

Enjoy what is left of the evening.
