My photo
A very warm welcome to my teeny, tiny part of the huge world of blogging. This is where I am hoping to 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 always 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 you are all well and that today has been a good day for you.

Mine has been nice and busy .. .. but I am pleased to say that I still found time to play along with the Stamp Fairy Challenge this week.

I love these cute images but sadly haven't had chance to play along for the last couple of weeks .. .. so here I am making amends.

Here is my creation - which was made following the sketch that had been provided

This used:

Image:  Stamp Fairy "Lenny Cupcake"
Backing Papers:  Pink Petticoat
Sizzix Die:  Stars #2
Glamour Dust
Glossy Accents

If you fancy playing along here is the sketch .. .. I flipped it!!

Aren't those little bears just the cutest?  Their cheeks look a bit "extra rosy" .. .. they have obviously been running around like mad things at the party .. .. .. as party peeps do!!! LOL!!!
Enjoy what is left of the evening.
