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 you all had a wonderful weekend.

Ours was super busy with the London Kids coming to stay for a couple of nights .. .. which is why I haven't made an appearance for a few days.  I have been too busy with a wedding pick-up on Friday and then trying to find the back bedroom for the kids to sleep in .. .. .. and entertaining.  Happy times!

The good thing (apart from spending special time together) is that the back room is now super tidy and organised .. .. .. I wonder how long it will stay like that?!!!?

So we waved the kids off this morning and now it is back to it .. .. .. and after designing a few wedding invitations for interested couples I had a little session in my craft pod and produced this:

This used:

Image:  Lili of the Valley Digi Image "Playing Golf"
Sentiment:  DigiStamp Boutique "Yay Enjoy Your Day"
Backing Papers:  Memory Box "Minuet"
Sizzix Die:  Grass (very old and probably no longer available)
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
My Trusty Sewing Machine

and that is me for today.

I'll catch you again soon.
