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

Happy .. .. whatever day it is!!!!  

My days are disappearing in a blur at the moment.  Lots and lots of wedding samples flying about the place like there is no tomorrow!! Certainly lots of interest following the wedding fayre the other week.

I have a feeling the postal delivery service is making a fortune out of me at the moment with all the sample materials that are being delivered!!  I should have bought some of those shares!! LOL!!!

Today I decided I needed a bit of a clear up campaign and so I collected all the snippets together that were around my craft pod and stacked them up to try and part with some of the smaller ones .. .. but made this with some of the larger ones that just happened to be lying around .. .. just right for running over to Di's Crafty Snippet Playground with.  (I missed last week .. .. sorry Miss Di).

This used:

Memory Box:  La Rue Heart Die
Backing Paper:  Pink Petticoat "French Script"
Sentiment:  Computer generated using font Old Script
Martha Stewart Punch:  Traditional Scallop
Glamour Dust
Double Sided Adhesive Sheet
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Ribbons and flower from my stash box

and that is me.  Short and sweet but at least I managed to make a card .. .. .. and make an appearance. Better than nothing!!!

I hope everyone is keeping well and that the weather has been better with you than it has been here of late. Mega rain most days!!!  Please let it stop soon as I have a happy couple getting married on Friday and I want them to have some sunshine!

Take care.
