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 whatever day it is LOL!!!

Not only am I having to work out what year and date it is .. .. I don't even know what day it is recently!

Life is super exciting and busy with loads and loads of wedding work (some of which stretches into 2018 which even means I am having to double check I am working in the right year!).

I am just waiting for a bride to come and collect her order so thought I would take the opportunity to nip on here and share a few of my creations that feature in the new issue of Quick Cards Made Easy magazine.. .. which went on sale earlier this week.

This first picture uses the free cover gift .. .. I loved working with this .. .. .. a gorgeous little stamp and really pretty paper pad.

and these next  pictures comes from a "Stand Out Die" commission I worked on - I couldn't decide which I like best so to save making a decision have posted two.  I like them both for different reasons.

and my last one is for a feature where you are sent one product and you use it four different ways. This was my favourite from that collection which all featured gorgeous butterflies.

I really love my magazine and wedding work but also have itchy fingers for playing with some of the crafty goodies that have been dropping through the letter box!  Not sure when I will get to play with them but hopefully it will be soon!

My head is buzzing with things I want to make and create .. .. but no sooner does a day start than it is finishing!  But as they say "time flies when you are having fun".

Right, best get the kettle on for my bride - just in case she needs a cuppa!!  Anybody else want one whilst I am at it?!!?
