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

I hope you have had a good day and that you haven't melted in the sunshine .. .. for my part .. .. well I stayed out of it!!  LOL!!

To much to do indoors to be outdoors!!!

An executive decision was made this morning to not start the "mulled wine" collection .. .. I decided it was going to put me under too much pressure to do another new range as well as get everything else done.  Oh dear!!!  I hope I'm not turning sensible in my old age!!  LOL!!!

We have another wedding fayre in 4 weeks time so I will work on the "mulled wine" for that one instead.

Thank you for all your lovely comment on my shabby chic invitation last night .. .. they were very encouraging.  So much so that I thought I would share another one with you tonight.

The actual background card doesn't photograph too well .. .. but it has very teeny tiny specks of glitter within the card.  Not a brash and gaudy glitter but a soft and delicate one .. .. such a shame you can't see it too well.

So that is me for tonight.

Just time now to get my snippet post scheduled for tomorrow, get reference numbers put on all my new wedding stationery samples and pack everything up ready for an early start tomorrow. 

I am really looking forward to the fayre and meeting all those lovely happy couples .. .. but I am also looking forward to getting home again and having a good old chill. 

Hopefully Mr Blogger will be kind and post up my snippet makes for me tomorrow.

Have a good evening.
