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 wonderful week .. .. mine has been taken up completely with "happy couple" work.

So what have I been doing during my absence?

Well, one of my "happy couples" are getting married tomorrow so it was all about the table plan, table names and finishing off the favours/placenames for them.

Alongside those it has been order of service booklets for another "happy couple". That turned out to be a bit longer job than I had originally booked into the timetable because once the couple received their proofs for signing off they decided they loved them so much that they no longer wanted people to share .. .. they wanted to double their order!  So the printer has been on mega overdrive.  They look so lovely all sitting their ready for picking up!

I am so lucky to get to work with so many lovely "happy couples" and pretty materials.

Hopefully the weather is going to be beautiful for both couples .. .. certainly if today is anything to go by then it should be.  Doesn't it make you feel good to see the sunshine!!

So now all the above work is done and dusted things are a "little" calmer. So who knows .. .. I might get chance to visit a few blogs over the course of the weekend and catch up on everything I have been missing .. .. and hopefully catch up on some of the "general" cards I need to be making.  Stocks have never been so low !!!

So whilst my brain is still in "happy couple" mode here is the first of my general makes for my Sis to have for the salon racks .. .. as those are looking a little sparse too .. .. eeekkk!!!  (But I could fill them with Christmas cards LOL!!)

So here we go .. .. a share at last:
