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

How do you fancy increasing your stocks of Promarkers?

"Oh, yes please" I hear you cry.

Well .. ..  even better than increasing your stocks .. .. .. how about choosing which colours you would like to add to your Promarker collection?

To celebrate single Promarkers now being available to buy from Handy Hippo you now have the chance to win a fantastic prize .. .. .. ..


Yes that's right .. .. you choose your own 20 colours !!! 
Woo hoo!!!

but please note this prize draw is only open to UK residents (sorry!)

To win this fabulous prize there are just three simple steps

1.  Post about this fabulous prize on your blog, along with a picture of the prize,
and link to my post here so that others get the chance to enter too.

2.  Put the Handy Hippo Banner below on your sidebar and link it to

3.  Leave me a comment on this post to let me know you have done the above and then keep those fingers crossed!!

If you already have the banner on your sidebar from the previous prize draw then you have even less work to do LOL!!!

Entries close at midnight on Sunday 8th January 2012.

My lovely playmate Kerry from Handy Hippo will randomly choose a winner on Monday 9th and I will announce that lucky person here on Tuesday 10th January.  But you need to have done steps 1, 2 and 3 above to be eligible to win the prize.


and all the lovely friendly people at Handy Hippo
