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.

THE LAST ONE FOR GIVING AWAY

Hi Everyone

Sorry I'm late folks.  It has been a busy old day in the House of Hearts plus I spent most of the afternoon with my Mum .. .. putting the world to rights and twisting flowers into attractive shapes for some wedding stationery I am doing..

Every Christmas card for giving away is now complete (tonight's being the last one) .. .. what a world record .. .. some years I have been known to still be making them Christmas Eve LOL!!!

So here is tonight's (late) share:





This used:

Backing papers, image and sentiment:  Pink Petticoat
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Crystal Stickles and Gold Stickles
Cord from the Stash Box

So now all the cards are sorted the next part of the military attack is to have all the parcels wrapped and ready by bedtime tomorrow.  To be fair most of them are done anyway so it isn't that big a deal .. .. but it will feel like a major achievement.

My parcel was delivered today too .. .. woo hoo!!!  All presents now in my sticky mitts ready for wrapping.  I'm pleased I don't have to think about that any more!!

Have a great evening everyone and I'll catch you again tomorrow.

Love

lovely card, Jules. I particularly like the colour combination - it's different. I can sit here quite smug because the cards are all written, addressed and delivered, and the presents are all wrapped - though, I did delegate that task to the EM, he's something of an parceling expert and enjoys wrapping ... yes, I did say he enjoys it, which must make him pretty unique among men :)) It's great to go down my tick list and note that the to-dos are nearly all done. Have a goodnight. Elizabeth x
