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 Tuesday!

The last day of yet another month!!  I have a feeling that 2019 is going to be a super quick year!!

I am at home all day today hopefully putting together wedding samples for sparkly new happy couples who have  recently appeared on the scene.  That is if the deliveries I have been promised for today arrive! 

I guess the good side of doing weddings is your work is seen by lots of people with the potential that some of them may also be on the verge of planning their own wedding.  Nearly all of the couples I have gained so far this year have been to weddings that I have  previously done the stationery for.  Some as long as 3 or 4 years ago!!!

So before the day was swallowed up by wedding work I indulged myself in a little play session and made one of my teeny, tiny 3.5" creations .. .. tailoring it to fit into the Penny Black Saturday Challenge where the theme for the remaining few days of the challenge is "anything goes" with the option of also including "fresh spring colours".

I looked out of my kitchen window and these are some of the colours I could see .. .. but sadly I couldn't actually see any heart shaped topiary happening anywhere LOL!!

This used:

Image:  Penny Black "2551H" Sending Love!
Sentiment  My Favourite Things "LJD-23 Birthday Greetings"
Backing Papers:  Simply Creative "Floral Lace" Purple
Gossy Accents
Flat Backed Pearls
My Trusty Sewing Machine

and that is it!

Hopefully catch you again soon.

Oh I do love Penny Black images and this one is very apt for you to use with the heart topiary. Wouldn't it be fun if you had a similar tree in your garden.

No heart shaped topiary anywhere to be seen out of my kitchen window either! I do love these smaller cards and it's always fun to see Penny Black images, they are adorable and mine are much underused
