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

Happy Tuesday .. .. I hope you are having a good day.

I am still with Mum and have spent some time today having a little crafty session on a little lap tray whilst Mum looked on.  She quite enjoyed watching me make a card and was asking lots of questions.

She asked whether I was OK working on such a small area and I said it is quite a big area really  .. .. .. if I was working on a desk I would probably be confined to an eight inch square!  LOL!!

Quite a basic card though because I have very limited equipment here at Mum's and I only the one photograph too unfortunately.

So, four and half days is when the customer competition ends over at Digistamp Boutique .. .. .. Saturday the 31st March.

This month, for the first time, the lovely Sally-Ann moved the competition over to Facebook and anyone who enters will receive this cute little image and sentiment for free just for entering.    You could use it the following month if you fancied ?!!?

But the overall winner will receive a lovely £10 voucher to spend on the website.  Simply pop over HERE  to  join the group and enter your project.  You can add anything .. .. as long as it uses one of Sally-Ann's gorgeous images.

This used:

Image and Sentiment:  Digistamp Boutique "free to March competition entrants" but for sale on the website from April
Backing Papers:  First Edition Paper "Blank Canvas"
Chalks sprayed with cheap hairspray for the background
X-Cut Palm Punch:  Small Flower
Stitched Square Die
Glamour Dust
Black Fineliner Pen
Gems and Ribbon from my crafty stash box

and that is it.

Sorry for the photograph.  This is the best I can do under the circumstances.

Hope everyone is well.
