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 hope you have enjoyed the start to your week.  

Definitely the super cold snap seems to have given way to a much warmer day here today.

It is about time a new sketch for February made an appearance in my sketch vault (I am trying to add a new one each month) and this is how I have used this month's offering:  

This used:

Image: LOTV "Spring Blooms"
Sentiment:  DigiStamp Boutique Clear Stamp (sadly no longer trading .. boo hoo!)
Design Papers:  First Edition Papers:  Bella Rose
Martha Stewart Daisy Edge Punch
X-Cut Flower Punch
Double Fishtail Die - unbranded from Amazon
Dew Drop Sticker
My Trusty Sewing Machine
and my new sketch

If anyone wants to use any of my sketches then please feel free to do so .. .. .. I use them as a reference point when I want to create a quick card and don't have time to faff about thinking things through.

So that is me for today .. .. .. I will catch you again soon, hopefully.

Glad your cold snap has finally lifted Jules. It's been wild weather all over the world, record cold in places that never see much cold here in the states. Many without electric as well. I feel blessed that we haven't had any of that ice/snow and loss of electric. But come Thursday we get snow again. Your card is adorable! The little bunny is adorable holding her cute birthday potted flower. Love the papers and the colors you used on this one. A great sketch to have in the vault! Hugs, Brenda
