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 Tuesday!!  (even though it feels like Monday).

Well the big tidy up happened super early this morning and I found my memory card .. .. very close to one of the usual six places I tend to put it .. .. but not close enough for it to be found last night!!  LOL!!!

Anyway, at least I have been able to take my pictures .. .. and here they are all ready for Sandra's Rudolph Day Challenge and Pixie's Snippet Playground

These used:

Images:  Cuddly Buddly "Santa Sitting" and "Going Down"
Sentiments:  Lili of the Valley "Christmas Sentiment Tags" with the most useful one being the blank as you can stamp it over your own computer generated sentiments!!
Backing Papers:  Snippets from Pink Petticoat (but sadly no longer available)
Impression Obsession Dies:  DIE100-F (Snowflakes)
Josy Rose:  Sequins
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Glamour Dust
Diamond Stickles

and that is me for today.

Lots to do over the next couple of weeks so I had better get on with it.

Have a good day everyone.

Di said...

Oh these are lovely cards Jules! LOVE the images and (sigh) I neeeeeed those LOTV stamps of course. Was just thinking today that I have a lot of loooooongish sentiment stamps but not very many squareish ones.

Glad you found that memory card - happened to me the other week and it turned up just slipped under the glass cutting mat on my desk - minor panic though!

Hugs, Di xx

Two lovely Christmas cards Jules.
Stitched sequins - very brave!!LOL!

Isn't it just so annoying when you can't find something and it's usually in the last place that you look!

I thought of you yesterday morning when some house martins woke me up VERY early. I hope that your birds have been quieter for you!

Hope you have a lovely week. xx
