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 your weekend is going well.

We are in the middle of an horrendous thunderstorm with mega rain .. .. I have a feeling the water butts will be overflowing tomorrow!!

One of my brides got married today.  Thankfully the weather was nice for her during the day but this evening's weather will have put paid to any celebrating in the lovely gardens.  But I am sure that won't spoil the special day.

A quick share this evening .. .. not for anything in particular .. .. just because I wanted to colour this scrummy image.  There hasn't been much colouring happening in the old House of Hearts recently and I have to admit to missing it a little.  So this was a lovely treat.  

This used:

Image:  Digistamp Boutique "Rosie and Ice-Cream"
Sentiment:  Pink Petticoat "Tiny Everyday Sentiments"
Backing Paper:  Pink Petticoat "Beach Cottage"
ProMarkers and Chalk
Diamond Stickles

Tomorrow needs to start with a huge crafty clear up!  Lots of tidying up and putting away needed!!

At least I won't need to water the garden though.  LOL!!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

What a sweet image and a gorgeous card.
Such a relief for the gardens to get some real watering and not just from a can. Personally I'm just glad it's cooled down a bit.
