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

Happy bonfire night!!

Busy, busy day today preparing for tomorrow.

Stupid thing is I will never be ready because my head is always filled with other ideas I want to play with .. .. which I suppose is a good thing because at least it means I have other designs in reserve for the next fayre.  But I want them ready now!!!  LOL!!!

So today's share shows a couple of examples from one of my new collections .. .. .. and yes .. .. I have written permission from Martha Stewart to use my gorgeous punch for wedding stationery work. 

I know that black is not everyone's favourite for weddings but you would be surprised how many people ask if I have any black samples .. .. and I must admit I really do like them.

So short and sweet from me tonight.

Have a lovely night if you are going firework watching and stay safe!!

Hi Jules,

That black and white is sophisticated and elegant. Traditionally isn't the groom is in black and the bride in white. why wouldn't they be the perfect wedding colours?

Beautiful work as always. Love that punch!
