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.

RUDOLPH DAY CHALLENGE - APRIL

Hi Everyone

Happy Monday!!

The start of a whole new week!!  Woo hoo!!

Mr Heart is off work today and is sorting out the greenhouse ready for this year's crops to be started off .. .. and I just know he is wanting me to be out there with him .. ..but the world of weddings cannot stop just because Mr Heart has a day off!!!  Too much pretty work to be done to get my hands and nails all filthy dirty!!!

Anyway, two more Christmas cards finished and ready for putting into the stock boxes and also for taking over to Sandra's Rudolph Day Challenge.

I had a little panic when I first saw Sandra's lovely makes for this month. I thought she had "upped the anti" and we were having to make four cards this month!!  But no .. .. a minimum of two was fine .. .. so here are mine .. .. 




These used:

Image:  Stampendous "CRR143" Snowy Postcard
Sentiment:  Hobby Art "CS010D" Town House Scene-its
Backing Paper:  Dovecraft "Noel"
X-Cut Corner Rounding Punch
Distress Inks
Gold Embossing Powder
Glamour Dust
Ribbon from my stash box

and that is me.

Two days of posting!!  Can't be bad!!!  Though it would appear I gave a few of you torture with one of the hearts yesterday.

It was certainly there .. .. 



easy when you know isn't it!!! LOL!!!

Enjoy today.  I hope it is a good day for you.

Love

Two brilliant cards Jules, don't know how you find the time and while I do all the planting and growing in the greenhouse I do think it is a mans job to get it sorted out and use the Jeyes fluid, I mean you can't have your invites smelling of Jeyes fluid can you?
