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

I hope you have all had a good Sunday.

I have had a lovely day and managed a little play with my snippets for taking over to Pixie's Snippet Playground .. .. .. with "little" being the operative word:

This little creation measures a whole 3 inches by 3 inches .. .. and I faffed about for blinkin' ages with it LOL!!!!!

It has been a lovely day here with Christmas starting to come together.  The tree is out of the roof and already half decorated and the Christmas cards are out ready to start writing.

Plus the Christmas glass is out .. .. woo hoo!

No heart on the glass .. .. but all the ice cubes inside will be heart shaped .. .. Tee hee!!

I am trying to get ahead of the game Christmas wise as there is rather a lot of wedding work to get through on the run up Christmas .. .. .. and today feels like a good start.  Though I am nothing like as organised as the folk on Coronation Street .. .. all of the houses are full to bursting with Christmas cards and decorations and have been for weeks!! LOL!!

Enjoy the rest of this evening and have a good week
