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 Thursday.

Didn't find time to schedule my post for today .. .. the scheduling organisation didn't last long did it!? .. .. but I am hoping to do more of it as it takes some of the pressure away whilst the weddings are busy.

At least then I can still share things whilst tying all those lovely ribbons.  It just means there just isn't much time for blog visiting  :-(  .. .. but there is nothing I can do about that .. .. I just have catch up eventually when and where I can.

So today's share uses a fabby image from over at Digistamp Boutique .. .. just perfect for a girly card:

This used:

Image and Sentiment:  Digistamp Boutique "Birthday Kate"
Backing Papers:  Aimee Asher "Cottage Paper Basket" (I think it is part of a larger bundle now - I have had it years and it was available as an individual download in those days).
My Favorite Things:  Die-namics Blueprints 14
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Ranger Embossing Tinsel:  Bridal
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Ribbon and Eyelet from My Crafty Stash Box

Really love this colour combo.  Just right for a bright summer's day .. .. which is what we are enjoying here today!  Just gorgeous!!

I am off to pop this into the Digistamp Boutique Challenge for July.  Lots of lovely inspiration over there!

Have a great day.

All being good I will catch you again tomorrow.
