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 are well.

Nothing much exciting to report at this end today .. .. .. it has just been a "keep your head down and get on with it" kind of day!

We have had mega rain here though .. .. I hope that means tomorrow is going to be fine as one of my happy couples will be "tying the knot".

My share today is a little creation I have just put together as a little break from typing out guest names for table plans and place names.  In fact thinking about it today has been more typing than anything else!!!  No wonder my fingers were itching to make something.

So here we go:

This used:

Image:  Digistamp Boutique:  Stan with Beer
Sentiment:  One is Pink Petticoat and the other was computer generated using font AR Carter
Backing Papers:  Pink Petticoat
Martha Stewart Punch:  Embossed Zig Zag
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Woodware Punch:  Inverted Corner Punch
ProMarkers and Chalk
Diamond Stickles

and that is it.

My turn to cook tonight so I had better go and get on with it!!!

Have a lovely evening.

What a great image, he makes me think of my hubby (who introduced me to Real Ale 36 years ago!) I like the 'beer-coloured' papers, too - brown ale and a creamy yellow head!! Very apt.

I hope the sun shines for you and the happy couple tomorrow!

love Mags B x
