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 you have had a good Wednesday.

The card I showed last night looked fine this morning .. .. which was a good job as I needed to drop it off to a friend this evening.  Once it was standing amongst all her other birthday cards I was well chuffed with it.

My day has flown by far too fast and sadly this is the extent of my share for today .. .. and not a heart in sight yet LOL!!!

One part coloured image .. .. and I started this last Friday!!!   Shame on me!!!  

 ... ... ...  but the weddings I love doing so much are taking hold big time.  The samples I made at the weekend went down well and happy couples are already returning and placing orders plus I already have weddings partway through .. .. so "weddings are definitely me" at the moment.

Hubby has three days holiday at the start of next week.  I have a feeling one of those is going to involve a trip to buy ribbons!!!  Ooooooo ... .. I love ribbon!!!

Exciting times .. .. be we all know what that means.  My blog suffers.

But I will be trying my very best to post as and where I can.

You never know this lovely Teddy Bea image may make it onto a card before the end of the week (or month LOL!!)  .. ..  but we will have to wait and see.

I'll catch you when I do.

ah Jules so agree days just aren't what they used to be lasted twice as long when I was a kid just getting a a rum deal these days there!!

I love your wee angels and hope all goes well with your wedding card..

I was asked to do one from best card buyer and said no and card orders dried up to be honest not too worried but occasional order was nice.

I simply cannot handle making multiples of things my brain (do I have one?) goes into a complete frizzle breakdown, :D Shaz in Oz.x

Hi Jules, sounds like you are very busy but in a nice way though.
Actually looking at the cute Teddy Bea I can see a heart in the shape of her fairy wings, even if it is a bit of a lop-sided one!
Take care, enjoy your ribbon shop next week.
hugs Sue
