My photo
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

Another beautiful day in my neck of the woods .. .. lots of sunshine .. .. and treat of treats I have been able to have my craft room window open without my papers flying everywhere!!  That was nice. 

All I needed was for someone to be cutting their lawn so I could smell the freshly mown grass .. .. but sadly that didn't happen today!!  Never mind we can't have everything.

Tonight's share is a lovely Lili of the Valley image  .. .. ... but shock horror I have just realised that I haven't given the poor little chappie any rosy cheeks so he looks like he has spooked himself!!

This used:

Image:  Lili of the Valley:  Abracadabra
Backing Papers:  Pink Petticoat "Spooky Doodlies"
Sentiment:  Pink Petticoat
Woodware Punch:  Inverted corner punch
Sizzix Die:  Stars
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder:  Swiss Dots
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Diamond Stickles

So that is me for today.

I will be here bright and early tomorrow as it is my day to do a reveal on the Get Funky! challenge .. .. and here is a little peep at what I have made.  I was quite "chuffed" with it as it came together without any faff or nonsence .. .. which is just the way I like it!!!

A super dinky shot .. .. what can it be?  It definitely isn't a card - that is the only clue I am giving.

See you tomorrow.
