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

I hope none of you have got blown away today by these strong winds.

Earlier today I had to go to the post office to get some orders weighed and posted off .. .. and the wind was rocking my car from side to side while I waited to turn into a side street!!!  It made me wonder how anyone manages to stay on a push bike when it is like this!

I always park a little way away from the post office and walk the final bit (I sadly get far too little exercise so every little bit helps LOL!!) but I have to admit to wishing I had parked outside!!  I was frozen by the time I got back to my car!

Anyway, here is my share for today:

This used:

Image:  Stamp Fairy "Lenny Ice Cream 1"
Sentiment:  Computer Generated using 2 fonts.  Zipty Do and Parisian BT
Backing Papers:  KaiserCraft "Butterfly Kisses"
Cherry Die from the Hero Arts Cupcake Die Set
ProMarkers and chalk
Glamour Dust
Diamond Stickles
Lot of clear embossing powder for the cherry!!

So that is me for today .. .. and as cold as I was earlier I could just eat that ice-cream.

The scrummy backing paper on the lower part of my card has lots of glitter on the coloured sections.  These were already there .. .. I haven't gone mad with my glamour dust!!!

Hopefully I will catch you tomorrow .. .. but things are hotting up in the House of Hearts.  I saw a new bride today and am seeing another one tomorrow and have lots of samples to get ready for other "happy couples" .. .. but we will see how it goes.
