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

Just a flying visit from me tonight I'm afraid as I have a mountain of cards that need to have inserts put in them before being packed up into their liitle cellophane bags ready for taking to the Festival.  We are setting up tomorrow evening so time is now running out. 

The weather forecast isn't good!!  :-(

Normally it is gorgeous weather (and today would have been brilliant for it) but at the moment the outlook is wet!!

Never mind .. .. we will have fun whatever.

So to make amends for not having enough wedding cards here is a quick and simple one I made today

This used:

Image:  Anita's "26646" Love and Cherish
Gold Embossing Powder
Josy Rose: Nail Heads
Ribbon and flower from the Stash Box

and that is it.  Not many ingredients for this one.

I love the way the embossing goes all bubbly and uneven.

So no blog visiting for me tonight :-( and probably not even until Sunday evening I'm afraid when the Festival is over .. .. but I will be posting some creations in my absence just to keep you busy finding hearts!!  LOL!!!

Take care everyone.

Catch you when I do

Sorry I've not been to visit over the past couple of weeks. Wanted to wish you good luck (you won't need it though I know) with the festival and hopefully I'll have sent an email by the time the weekend is over :-)
