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 Monday!

I hope everyone had a good weekend.

I really enjoyed mine, just playing with bits and pieces in the old craft pod .. .. .. I managed to get a few cards made for the salon .. .. and a few blogs visited amongst everything else that was cracking off (still loads more of you lovely visitors to catch up with but I will get there eventually I promise).

The old wedding list work got added to over the course of the weekend too, so even more to keep me out of mischief!

But I am quite chuffed to have a few cards under my belt to share with you over the course of this week and this first creation uses a stamp which was purchased very early in my crafty stamping life (not sure it is still available .. .. but I hope it is because it is so versatile .. .. even though it doesn't look it.

So here we go:

This used:

Image:  Stampendous "N130" Dream Block Trio
Sentiment:  Computer Generated using font "Georgia"
Backing Papers:  Pink Petticoat French Country "Tea Rose Classic Design Pack
Stampin' Up Punch:  Word Window 
Spellbinders:  Classic Heart
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder "Swiss Dots"
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Distress Ink:  Worn Lipstick
Ribbon, lace and flower from my crafty stash box

Have a lovely day today.   The weather looks like it might be kind .. .. at the moment.

Jules, this is gorgeous, yes a very versatile stamp which covers lots of occasions. I take my hat off to you as wedding stationery isn't an easy task. But as you say it keeps you busy, it's not a busy I will do again. Hazel x
