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 Wednesday has been good.

A mixed bag of weather here but we have managed to dodge the rain .. .. more by luck than anything!

As my remaining wedding work is all messed around at the moment I have been having more time to spend with Mr Heart and also to improve on my blog posting and visiting skills.  

One beautiful blog I have recently stumbled upon, quite by accident belongs to the lovely and very talented Claire who has a blog called String Bows .. .. .. and whilst having a nosey about "as you do" I stumbled upon this lovely card here and I simply had to add the stamp set into my collection as I can see it being useful for so many different occasions.  Lots and lots of different characters, elements and sentiments that you use to create a variety of wreaths.  

This is my first play:

This used:

Image and sentiment:  Tracey Hey "Rocking the Wreath"
Backing Papers:  From the snippet mountain
Memento Ink Pads
My Trusty Sewing Machine

and that is me for today .. .. .. hope you are all well.  Take care of yourselves and stay safe as we see the second virus phase starting to take hold.

Well firstly thank you so much for your kind words and linking my blog, bless you. Now I love the bunny swinging his legs, isn't it just too irresistible to resist. The delicate pinks are such a pretty touch and guess what... the set is laden with hearts. I look forward to seeing more and being inspired :) x

A super card Jules, such an adorable stamp - I can see why you had to add it to your collection.
Still bright and sunny down here, we are having some lovely brisk walks with the dogs at the moment - this is my kind of weather.
