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.

TWO SCOOPS

Hi Everyone

I hope you have all had a good day.

It has been a busy old day in the House of Hearts.

My lovely Sis is on holiday from work this week and she spent the day at mine .. .. I was busy with my wedding stationery and my Sis was busy sewing hundreds of teeny tiny beads onto wedding bags.

Being the active one of the two of us she then went off to Zumba and I made my share for the day .. .. and here it is:





This used:

Backing Papers:  All Pink Petticoat
Image:  Basic Grey "Two Scoops/Swirlie" overstamped onto Pink Petticoat papers
Sentiment:  Anita's
Sizzix Die:  "656521" and "656640"
Martha Stewart Punch:  Traditional Scallop
Tim Holtz Distress Ink:  Black Soot
Silver Embossing Powder
Ribbons, cord, button and charm from the Stash Box

and that is me for today.

Time to fly.  We haven't eaten yet and my tummy is a rumbling!!!

Catch you again tomorrow

Love

Ever since my daughter gave me two containers of her home made soup the the day I've had 'two soups' going through my head. When I first saw your post I thought that's what it said.lol

Not long back from Zumba myself. I'll suffer with my knees tomorrow now I bet.
