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.

LOVE YOU

Hi Everyone

Back again!

Just a quick share tonight .. .. as I have been visiting my Mum this afternoon (armed with favour boxes for sticking together) and I was a little late back.

Tonight I suddenly realised what is just around the corner .. .. Valentine's Day!!!

Alongside Christmas and Mother's Day I find this quite an easy occasion to create for.  Must be something to do with all the hearts!!!  LOL!!!

So here is my first valentine make of 2012








This used:

Letters cut from:  DCWV Rockstar Mat Stack
Letters cut with:  Sizzix Alphabet Die Set "Round-a-Bout" 
Wooden Heart (can't believe I have managed to get my hands on these .. .. they sell out as soon as they come back in stock . . . . and I lurve them!!!)
Woodware Punch:  Inverted corner rounder
Self adhesive pearls and ribbons from the Stash Box

and that is about it!!  Easy to make but not easy to photograph because of the pink foiling.

If you called by to see if you won the Promarkers from Handy Hippo then the winner is announced here.

I'll catch you again tomorrow . .. .. . time to munch on a bit of supper and then hopefully a little blog hop before bedtime!

Love
