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 am still chasing my tail a bit but super soppy Jules is here today with a romantic boxed valentine card.  Thankfully a bit earlier than last night.

It has been a little hard to photograph this little arrangement but hopefully you can get the idea.

This used:

Backing Papers:  Pink Petticoat (Just An Old Fashioned Girl)
Sentiment:  Computer Generated using The King and Queen font from Fonts4Free
Nestabilities: Large Labels
Sizzix Dies:  Heart = 655459 Heart Frame and  "656425" Box and Lid (for Big Shot Pro)
Martha Stewart Punch:  Valentine Lace
Josy Rose:  Gems
Diamond Stickles
Ribbons and flowers from Hobbycraft

The card will be wrapped in tissue inside the box and I have sprinkled all little hearts within the folded tissue too.

If this was given to me I would store it inside the box and save it for ever!!

Anyway enough of this soppy talk .. .. .. it is time for my bath ahead of hubby's home made fish and chip supper (with "real" chips mmm... have I ever told you I love Fridays LOL!!!).

Don't forget that tomorrow starts the Penny Black at Allsorts blog hop with lots of prizes up for grabs .. .. .. so I will be here nice and early (provided Mr Blogger loves me). 

Have a lovely evening.

OOOH Beautiful keepsake, love that you've got the box to keep it in, definitely a treasured memory there!

mmmm fish and chips with real chips sounds great, dad does his own chips too sometimes, nice big thick cut potatoes, all deep fried with lots of salt and pepper... sure thats SO bad for you... altho I did read somewhere that the thinner chips hold the fat, the thicker ones dont... so I can I believe that and feel good about it LOL.

Awww Jules, I can always rely on you to have a jolly good show of romantic cards! Anyone would think you have a soft spot for hearts or something!!

I love the australian love border (or should I say belt as its in the middle?!), looks so smart in the black!

Just gorgeous!
