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.

ON YOUR ENGAGEMENT

Hi Everyone

A quick share of a card I was asked to make by my neighbour for her brother who is getting engaged soon.

Cute and cuddly images I know just wouldn't be suitable so I am hoping she will like this instead.

I had asked what their wedding colours would be and the ever popular Cadbury's purple was the response so decided to incorporate them in their engagement card.

So this is what I have put together:





This used:

Image for the embossed background:  Inkadinkado "903" Lace Background
Sentiment:  No reference on the stamp . .. just the words "Heritage Rubber Stamp Co. Scotland"
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Silver Embossing Powder
Diamond Stickles
Ribbon, cord, flower and charm from The Stash Box

Hopefully my neighbour will like it.

Well I have been putting off going to the post box because of all the rain .. .. but it looks like I can't put it off any longer or I will miss the last collection.

Raincoat on, umbrella up and off I go.  Where summer go?  Did I blink and miss it?!?!?!?

Have a good weekend everyone.  I hope you find a little bit of crafty time all for yourself.

Love

Hi Jules, gorgeous card. Purple and silver is a great combination and the lace stamping on purple is sumptuous. That stamp company is based in Edinburgh but your stamp doesn't appear on the online catalogue - there's lots of kilted males though :) Elizabeth xx

stunning - this shade of purple is so smart and regal. I did a wedding last year and used 'Liberty' from Berresfords which is basically Royal Purple! Love the sentiment stamp - embossed perfectly.
