My photo
A very warm welcome to my teeny, tiny part of the huge world of blogging. This is where I 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 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

Well the Festival has gone well today.

I got home around 6.45pm and went straight into a hot bubbly bath to try and help my very aching knees!! LOL!!! I have been on my feet since 8.30am (except when I escaped to the cafe for a quick jacket potato with cheese and salad ... yummy).

We have had a good day - even though it did rain a little this afternoon.

The weather forecast isn't too good for tomorrow but hopefully it won't put people off.

I did gain some extra display space today so put some of my wedding stationery on show in a cabinet alongside some bridal bags that my lovely Sis had made. We are hoping to hit the wedding market together.

I took a quick photo to share with you but it is all a bit busy. If you look closely at my Sister's bags you will see lots of little beads .. .. she has sat and stitched all of those on by hand !!!!

Once home I made a quick make .. .. I was having withdrawal symptoms all day .. .. but it was too dark to photograph this evening. The creation was for a lady that is calling back tomorrow. She wanted a Christening card for her nephew. I hope she collects it as it took mega effort .. .. .. I could so easily have just flopped on the sofa and done nothing after my bath! I have been getting up far too early all week and must admit I have a bit of sleep to catch up on LOL!!!

Anyway here is the photo

This used (LOL!!)

A lot of love, enjoyment and patience

So back to the Festival tomorrow morning. I dread to think how my knees will feel by tomorrow evening!!!

I hope you have all had a good day today too.

Sorry about not catching up with everyone's blogs. Hopefully tomorrow evening I can put this to rights (if I can stay awake long enough).

Thank you for all your good wishes for the Festival both here and via email .. .. .. I do have such lovely blog friends and I do appreciate you all very much.

Love Jules xx
