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

Happy Friday!!  I hope all is well with you all.

Another of my weeks have disappeared in the blink of an eye .. .. but having said that I have got lots done on the wedding front!  So lots of happy "happy couples".  Yay!!

Before I get started onto today's wedding list though I had an early morning "watercolouring session" .. .. and I quite enjoyed it!!

Here is what I created . .. . which is for taking over to the CAS Watercolour Card Challenge where the theme for this month is "Ocean".

This used:

Image:  Digistamp Boutique "Bon Voyage Set"
Sentiment:  Digistamp Boutique A4 and quick print "Birthday Sentiment Set"
Distress Ink Pads:  Mermaid Lagoon, Stormy Sky, Peacock Feathers, Spiced Marmalade, Twisted Citron and Abandoned Coral
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Dimension Pads
Crystal Glamour Dust
My Trusty Sewing Machine

.. .. and that is me for today!

Just off to link up to the challenge and then time to start cutting lots more ribbon!!

Have a great weekend everyone when it arrives!
