My photo
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

Super late in the old House of Hearts today!

It has been another busy old day .. .. and I have a feeling I am going to have a busy old few weeks ahead of me judging by all the boxes I have filled today with supplies for making wedding invitations, favour boxes, table plans and table stationery.

I felt quite sorry for the delivery man as he struggled up the drive with a huge box.  He carefully placed it on the floor inside the front door whilst I signed for it and then off he went leaving me the lovely job of splitting it all into the various storage boxes for the relevant couples.

I get tricked every time when I open the box and see samples on the top and my heart always skips a beat when for a nano second I panic that I have ordered the wrong colour LOL!!  Every time it happens LOL!!!

Anyway, time for a quick share that for a change doesn't involve a Christmas card .. .. 

This used:

Image:  Penny Black "2074J" Mighty Wishes!
Sentiment:  Pink Petticoat (no longer available I'm afraid .. .. I have had them years and years)
Backing Papers:  Docrafts "Best of British"
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
X-Cut Punch:  Corner Rounder
ProMarkers and Chalk
Diamond Stickles
White Gel Pen
Metallic Cord

and that is me for today.

Not sure I will get chance to share anything tomorrow as I have a full "seeing customers" day ahead of me  .. .. but I will try my best.

I hope everyone's week is going OK and my apologies for not getting much commenting in at the moment.

Thanks for your lovely comment Jules but you shouldn't have told me not to post any more photos of food. That's like holding a red rag up to a bull. lol.
You've used one of my fave colour combos on this card, simple but stylish. I can't get enough of your PB images, soooo cute.
