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 had a good Saturday.

Thank you for all your lovely comments on my rustic flower yesterday.  You are all very kind.

Did anyone else wake up to a huge amount of snow?!?!?!?

It started to fall very heavily early evening yesterday and was still going strong when we gave in and went to bed "late" .. .. after falling asleep downstairs LOL!!

Yet it has nearly all disappeared as quickly as it arrived.

Thank goodness for that!  I was beginning to have a little panic about the wedding fayre tomorrow .. .. .. but all looks good so I don't see any reason for it not to be going ahead.

I have got my rustic table plan done and dusted but haven't been able to take a very good picture yet.  But at least this will give you the general idea.

Just off now to get my boxes packed and this time I am going to be super efficient and make a list of everything I take .. .. then when I empty everything out again on Monday morning I will put the list into one of the empty boxes before it goes back up into the roof space for storage.  That will save a bit of thinking next time as I will just be able to work through the list.

Have a good Saturday evening everyone.

Hello Jules, Such gorgeous work. You have managed to maintain a rustic feel, but also given the table planner such elegance. I think that will be the winner! Hope you do well tomorrow. Lynn x

Oooo classy, if i ever decide to marry my OH, i'll have to come to you for some ideas, for an Australian wedding !!!

I'm glad for you the snow didn't lay and good luck for the wedding fair tomorrow, but i'm sure you won't need it, as your designs are amazing, luv Sam x

I love the look of these, Jules. I don't know how you keep coming up with so many new ideas. The rustic flowers are stunning. I hope the Fayre goes brilliantly, I'm sure it will and the weather should have improved. Like you say, the snow disappeared as fast as it came.
My SIL went to a Wedding Fayre today with her DIL to be to get some ideas. I am hoping to encourage them to some DIY invites and things, not sure whether they will though.
Have a great day tomorrow and looking forward to hearing all about it.
Hugs Lisax
