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

A lovely day of wedding work again today .. .. .. including choosing some lovely diamante and pearl embellishments for my next lot of samples.  Oooo... I can't wait for them to arrive!!

Then suddenly time disappeared and I thought I had better get something made for my lovely blog .. .. so here it is .. .. a quick and simple make

This used:

Image and sentiment all one stamp:  Anitas (Gosh this took a lot of colouring LOL!!)
Sentiment Banner:  Pink Petticoat
Backing Papers:  Papermania Signature "Chatsworth Vintage Collection"
Woodware Punches:  Daisy
Leone Em Pty Punch:  Ash Branch
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Brads and ribbon from the Stash Box

and that is it!!  I love the papers and colours on this one.

That just leaves me time to have a quick dip in the bath before my favourite programme of the week .. .. The Apprentice!!

We are getting down the candidates now.

My blog buddy Keryn and I both choose three candidates each at the beginning.

Keryn has two left:  Zoe Beresford and Jim Eastwood

and I still have three:  Susan Ma, Natasha Scribbins and Thomas Pellereau  (just so you know who I am rooting for!!) 

Not sure I would want to go into business with any of them personally  LOL!!!

OK .. I go.  Hopefully catch you later.

What a cute card! I love the color combo too!!

Lynn said...

What a lovely card and I like the colours you've used. I rarely use brown on a card but it looks good with this shade of blue - might have to try this combination myself. My son likes to watch The Apprentice and I join him sometimes but although I find the programme interesting Alan Sugar ... sorry Lord Sugar ... gets on my nerves.
