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 all is well with everyone and that life is being kind to you.

I can't believe that it is the weekend .. .. again!!  Where do the weeks go?

My week has been "full on" with weddings .. .. hence having nothing to share with you again for days on end!!  

I have got lots done and crossed off the list but no sooner does a wedding disappear than it is being replaced  by another.  Lucky, lucky me!  

One of my "happy couples" got married today and as soon as the alarm went off I rushed out of bed to peep through the curtains to see what the weather was like.  Funny I seem more bothered about the weather for my happy couples than I was when we got married.  

First thing the weather was very dull and "suspect" but come the magic hour the sun shone and it stayed lovely for the whole afternoon so hopefully there will be some lovely photographs to see.

The latest copy of Quick Cards Made Easy is out now and again I was lucky to be asked to work with the cover gift.

Here is one of the cards I made with some of the free papers and one of the free stamps.  Isn't she sweet?

super cute and a lovely freebie.

I also got to work with some other lovely goodies but will share those another day as my lovely Friday fish and chips are ready!!!  Yummy, yummy!!!

Have a lovely weekend everyone.

Catch you again soon (I hope!!).

I was only wondering this morning where you had escaped to and them I realised you would be locked in your craft room because of wedding fever.

Your card is gorgeous and I love the papers and yes I agree, she is so sweet.
