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.

CHRISTMAS TREE TED

Hi Everyone

Late again with another Christmas card to share after having a day in wedding mode.

I love my wedding work and love my general card work too .. .. but doing the two in one day is really weird.  One being quite minimalist and the other a creation you can go to town on.  The trick being not to make something you can go to town on before you make a new wedding invitation sample .. .. or you end up going a bit "over the top"  LOL!!!

So it was weddings most of the day and a Christmas make this evening.




This used:

Image:  Penny Black "4015K" Christmas Tree Ted
Backing Papers:  Funky Hand Originals CD "Yule Be Funky"
Martha Stewart Punch:  Embossed Zig Zag
Hobbycraft Punches:  Snowflakes Large and Small
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads (mmm... where is it?)
ProMarkers
Glamour Dust
Metallic Cord from the Stash Box

I will give you a break from Christmas cards tomorrow as it will be my lovely Sister's birthday .. .. and I will share the card I have made for her.  Oh I am so lucky to have such a brilliant baby Sis!!

Have a good evening everyone.

Love

It must be a little like having a split personality when you are jumping between styles. Love this teddy card - he's so cute and the colours would be nice for a little boy. Elizabeth x

I'm guessing the little heart is the nail head. Never used them before but I do have a small number of them from a craft magazine pack. Your card is lovely, the bright blue and the snowflake are so striking.

Happy birthday to your sister, I'm looking forward to seeing your beautiful card.

Love Mandy xxx

I'm so glad your festival went well, Jules, especially after all the work you put in.
Both Christmas cards are gorgeous. I love the tied cord on this one, it makes such a nice change from ribbon.
Have a great weekend and Happy Birthday to your sister.
