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 Thursday has been a good and productive one.

My day started by opening up the greenhouse and watering all the crops that are now getting nicely established.  I then suggested to Mr Heart that we have breakfast outside .. .. .. which we did, and I enjoyed it very much.  

It was the first time I have sat in the garden this year .. .. what a waste of all the lovely sunshine we have been having.

Weddings are starting to make an appearance in the House of Hearts again with signed off proofs being returned by brides who are now wanting me to go ahead and make their stationery.  So things are hotting up on more that just the weather front!

So with my head full of weddings this is what I have created to share today:

This used:

Image:  LOTV "Bunnies Swing"
Sentiment:  Computer Generated using font "Ink Free"
Backing Papers:  From the snippet mountain which I am determined to reduce drastically
Corner Rounding Punch
Crystal Glamour Dust
My Trusty Sewing Machine

and that is me for today.

Many thanks to everyone who has been leaving comments and emailing regarding the sewing I do on my cards.  You are all very kind.  Unfortunately for those who would like me to do a YouTube video .. .. I am sorry but I wouldn't have the foggiest idea how to do that.  

But I will try to do something on my blog sometime that shows the process in photographs along with instructions.  But it won't be something I can do in the very near future I'm afraid.

Another very lovely card and a small part of the 'mountain'used up. I love watching YouTube videos but, like you, I wouldn't have a clue how to produce one!! Sounds like good news on the wedding front.
