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

Yay!!!  I made it !!!

Card 4 of 5 done and dusted!

Cooking on gas with the wedding work today .. .. which is good because I have a mountain of it to get through!

Lots of happy couples getting married over the next two months but lots of people wanting samples too ready for next year's weddings so I am being kept on my toes!  Can't be bad.

So here is today's "get well" card .. .. .. not the stamp I thought I would be using .. ..  I changed my mind at the last minute .. .. but I am happy with the result:

This used:

Image:  Penny Black "4239K" Scented Message
Sentiment:  Pink Petticoat
Backing Paper:  GCD Studios "Soul Food"
Distress Inks:  Tattered Rose and Tea Dye
Fiskars Punch:  Oval
My Trust Sewing Machine
Buttons and lace from the Stash Box

So that is me for today.

I hope Friday 13th has been a good day for you.

Catch you tomorrow (if all goes to plan) with my final get well card .. .. using an image that I saved until last.  My favourite "get well" image.  Mmmm  ...  what could that be?!!  LOL!!

Have a good evening and a good weekend.

Hi Jules, a really pretty card - I like what you've done with the lace and button and the backing paper is gorgeous. I hope your brides/happy couples are getting good weather on their special day but I fear, because of how this summer has gone so far, that is a vain hope. Hugs, Elizabeth x x

Hi Jules, All your Get Well cards this week are brilliant but my favourite is the gorgeous Bees Knees. I just love the expression on their faces! I agree with you about LOTV's "Little Nurse" - are you sure she is not dishing out that "pink" medicine? Pauline xx
