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.

SENDING CHRISTMAS LOVE

Hi Everyone

I hope your Monday has been good.

I'm quite pleased with what I have managed to cram into today so far .. .. and I even managed another Christmas card. Woo hoo!!!

This is one that some of you may remember me making a similar version of last year .. .. but it didn't make an appearance until late into my Christmas makes and I didn't have enough of them to keep everyone happy .. .. so I am getting of few made nice and early this year to avoid disappointment.

I have had my Cricut machine on overdrive again cutting out hearts whilst I have been putting together some order of service booklets.  Oh I do love it when two jobs can be done at the same time .. .. and I now have a nice little pile of hearts for making some more of these little beauties.




This used:

Sentiment:  Pink Petticoat "Hand Written Christmas Sentiments"
Papers on Heart:  Random Pink Petticoat Papers
Heart cut using my neglected Cricut and the George and Basic Shapes Cartridge
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Dovecraft Punch:  Holly Leaves
Glamour Dust
Self Adhesive Pearls and Cord from my Stash Box

and that is me for today.

Time for a tidy up now and an organisation session so I am ahead of the game for tomorrow.

Have a lovely evening everyone and thanks for calling by.  Catch you again soon.

Love

I don't remember seeing a card like this last year - but then this time last year everything was up in the air with the pending house move so I was hardly online at the time. I can see why the design it so popular - it's fab. All that stitching too - just lovely.

I am loving seeing all of your Christmas makes, Jules. Everyone of them is a beaut! This one (and the one above) particularly caught my eye but sadly I am so behind in my commenting that I can't leave a comment on them all. Hope you are well! Hugs, Lesley
