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 are all well!

This has to have been the fastest week on record .. .. and definitely the busiest one ever.  

I have dabbled in everything.  Wedding work, Christmas card orders, birthday orders, magazine commissions, accounts ready for Mr Accountant Man .. .. but very little housework (oops) .. .. and I feel that next week is going to be very much the same. 

I did have a mad clean up campaign very early one morning in readiness for a  few "happy couples" that were calling by and I had to smile to myself when I considered the fact that Mr Heart might start getting people to arrange "fictitious visits" just to make sure I do at least a bit of housework LOL!!

So no posts from me all week  I'm afraid .. .. and no blog visiting .. .. I am really sorry about that but my time was eaten up on projects I couldn't share and that have kept me super busy :-(

I can however show you my favourite project from the Quick Cards Made Easy magazine which has just gone on sale.  I was commissioned to do a technique called triple embossing and this was possibly my favourite of the cards I made  ..  I always struggle to choose.

I am hopeful that I might get chance to play with a few snippets tomorrow if the day is kind to me. There are certainly enough of them scattered around the old House of Hearts that' s for sure.  I do wish I wasn't such a hoarder sometimes .. .. .. but then I hate waste so I suppose I will always be one!

I'll catch you tomorrow  .. .. hopefully!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
