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

Zoom .. .. .. my week has gone!!!

Sorry for the quiet couple of days.  All super busy on the wedding/order front and I need to keep my head down and get on.

I needed a card in a hurry on Tuesday so I nipped over to the Sketch Saturday Challenge blog as their sketches are always scrummy to use .. .. and this is what I came up with:

This used:

Image and sentiment:  Pink Petticoat "Just for Ewe"
Backing Papers:  DCWV " Latte Stack"
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Cuttlebug Embossing Borders "Just My Type"
Distress Ink:  Tumbled Glass
Glamour Dust
White Gel Pen
Scrap of wool

and this is the sketch I followed in case you have time to play.

The challenge closes today so I had better get a wriggle on and link up!  Can't believe my card was finished Tuesday and delivered to the recipient by Royal Mail before it even made its way to my blog!  Slacker!!!

All super busy here with wedding work and things are hotting up with enquiries from "new happy couples" who have happy days planned .. .. I see my first new couple of 2014 this Saturday.  Woo hoo!!

I think it is going to be a bumper wedding year this year if these first two weeks of 2014 are anything to go by.  Who said romance was dead?!?!

Have a lovely day everyone and thanks for calling by my blog.

Hoping to get some serious visiting of my own in over the weekend!!  I am a rubbish blog buddy!  Sorry :-(
