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 CALM BEFORE THE STORM

Hi Everyone

Well as promised here is the calm before the storm.

Creation is just about to start.




As you can see I managed the Christmas tree and a few decoration up .. .. and what do you think of that huge fig plant?

My Dad bought it as a tiny twig a lifetime ago.  I gained it and can't bear to part with it .. .. but it is just so huge!!  It lives outside during the summer and comes in for the winter.  It still needs some Christmas lights.

Right off to make a start.

Have a happy Sunday everyone.

Love

Incredible Christmas tree and fig tree, Jules! You are surrounded by green oxygen!! Well, unless the Christmas tree is not real, in which case you are surrounded by SOME oxygen, but lots of lights and spirit!! The fig tree is a lovely memory of your dad.

Aww glad you've got your Christmas Tree up Jules… not got around to mine yet… and it only needs taking out of the box as it's fibre optic one!! LOL - but I need to make a space for it!!! so I've just been writing my cards….
We used to have a fig tree like that … we had it for many years… but can't remember what happened to it in the end?… probably someone forgot to water it or else overwatered it!!! which was shame because they are really pretty leaf and shape…
Hope you're having a good weekend!
Big hugs
Sue xx
