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

Rushing through tonight as we have friends coming this evening .. .. and as usual I am nowhere near ready .. .. eeekkk!!!

All I can say is thank goodness I'm not supposed to be cooking a meal or else we would all starve!!

So here is the last in my theme of the week which has been Weddings and Anniversaries.  This one would do for either I suppose really.  

This used:

Image:  Stampendous "XXH005" Glasgow Cheers
Nestabilities:  Classic Circle and Scalloped Circle
Scor-Pal for making the background card
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Glamour Dust
Everything else from the Stash Box

We nipped into the market this morning and I just couldn't resist buying a little of the gorgeous floral ribbon I have used here.  Love the colours.

So that is my theme for this week is over.  I am quite enjoying having themes .. .. and will have a ponder as to what the coming week can be .. .. unless you have any suggestions.

I'll be back tomorrow with my snippet make .. .. but for now I think I had better pull my finger out and get ready for our visitors.

Thank you to those of you who let me know the name of the stamp I used yesterday.  I will have to write it on the wooden block ready for the next time I use it.

Have a good evening everyone.

Another stunning card, I love that floral ribbon, and you've used it brilliantly.

Suggested theme, what about those little wedding favour boxes you make, perhaps you could kill two birds with one stone and make some samples into the bargain!

Have a great weekend!
