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 Wednesday.  Bank Holidays always make me have to stop and think what day it is!!!

Mrs Postlady called by with a fabby envelope containing this gorgeous pre-loved MS punch today.  I have been looking forward to playing with it all day whilst I have been keeping brides happy.

This is what I made .. ..

Image:  Woodware Clear Magic "JGS290" Bubble Bloom "Felicity"
Sentiment:  Pink Petticoat "Happy Birthday Sentiments"
Martha Stewart Punch:  Deep Edge Flower Bed
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Glossy Accents
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Ribbon from my stash box

and that is me for today.

Thanks for the get well wishes everyone .. .. I felt guilty (and mardy) for mentioning it .. .. the symptoms are now morphing into a good cough and cold and my voice is turning very husky.  I wonder if it will disappear altogether.  I bet hubby would like that LOL!!!

I promise not to mention it again LOL!!

Have a good rest of the evening everyone.

Another simply gorgeous card and that punched edge is a beauty. But so is the stamp, in fact it's gorgeous - love the bubble effect. Hope that cold fizzles out in a day or so - I suggest lots of hot lemon and honey for your throat - maybe a touch of whisky too :)) Hugs, Elizabeth xx
