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

What a glorious day today has been .. .. I hope that everyone has had the same weather as we have had here .. .. truly beautiful! 

Well here I am as promised with the second of my red, white and blue creations.  This time more of a fun one!! 

A little late .. .. yet again .. .. as one of my "happy couples" have been this evening to collect the final part of their wedding stationery so another bare patch in the House of Hearts now the table plan, table numbers and a few last minute place names are gone.

Won't it be lovely if the weather is like this for them on their happy day!

Anyway, back to my creation for the day

This used

Image and bunting:  Digistamp Boutique
Sentiment:  Computer Generated using font "pass the chex"
Backing Papers:  Digichick Boutique "Joyful Heart Designs"

and that is it!!!

Not too much to it .. .. but I love it all the same!!

There are coloured and non-coloured images in the digistamp set.  I chose to colour the smiley grenadier guard but I used the pre-coloured bunting flags.  

So that is me for today.

I promise I will be catching up with everyone soon.  Just one more happy couple with a tight deadline and I will then "perhaps" be back to a more normal routine .. .. if I can force myself to slow down.  I will probably be feeling lazy then!!!  LOL!!!

Fantastic card Jules, very fitting with the current celebrations but l guess that's why you are making these patriotic cards lol.

The weather has been stunning today, another load of washing sorted and ironed! Let's hope it stays for a while :)

It would be nice if you got some 'slower' time, you'd be able to catch your breath then!

Have a great evening, take care of yourself xx
