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

Well I think it is time I seriously got into Christmas card mode .. .. so you might get a bit fed up of seeing them on my blog for a while.

I have another two craft fairs coming up in a few weeks, as well as my regular customers, and Christmas is going to be the main thing folks will need .. .. so Christmas here I come.  What a good job I love it so much!!!

So that means today you need to suffer a Christmas card from me LOL!!!

and the close up

This used:

Image:  Stampavie "GR003" - Mistletoe and Mice
Sentiment:  Unmounted Stamp Company "USC TX15 "Merry Kissmas"
Backing Paper:  DCWV Rose Tinted Christmas
Martha Stewart Punch:  Stars
Hobby Craft Punch:  Small Snowflake
Ribbon and Cord from the stash box

So that is me for today. 

I have been looking into changing the layout/look of my blog but it all looks a bit too daunting.  I think it will be staying as it is for a long while to come!!  LOL!!

Have a lovely weekend everyone.

Love Jules xx

You can find a page through your blogger account and try different layouts without changing anything. You can even choose a look and then change back without loosing anything :)
