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

Happy Sunday!!

I hope you have all enjoyed your extra hour .. .. today seems to have lasted for ages LOL!!  Why can't every day be like this?  I feel like I have got lots done. 

No snippet make share after all  because Di's snippet playground gates are locked until midnight this week (no way am I hanging around outside the gates that late .. Mum wouldn't like that at all LOL!!!) .. .. so I will share my snippet make tomorrow and take it to the playground then. 

But here is today's share:

This used:

Image:  Penny Black "29851" Duck Noel
Backing Paper:  Dovecraft "Back to Basics Christmas"
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Spellbinders Nestabilities:  Classic Squares
Glamour Dust

The Penny Black image actually comes in one long stamp but I kept masking it off so I could use it on a square card.

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

Hi Jules, here for a catch up at last! I wish I could say the day felt longer, as I was hoping it would, but it's flown! Never mind, three days in work and then I'm off again, lol!

Really love this card, not seen these images before and they are so cute.
Don't blame you for not hanging round those gates, now it's so dark and not so much for what is lurking outside but the goings on inside.
