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 would like to start by thanking everyone who left such lovely comments on my last post.  You are all so very kind and I was really touched by the lovely things that were said.  What lovely blog buddies I have.  Thank you!  Mwah!!!

I hope everyone has had a lovely weekend .. .. and enjoyed your extra hour!  

It certainly seems like an extra long day.  Very nice indeed!  What a difference an hour makes.

I made sure some of the extra time was used making a couple of cards for taking over to Pixie's Snippets Playground and also Sandra's Rudolph Day Challenge.  I haven't had chance to scurry over to the playground the last couple of weekends .. .. but I am sure I know the way .. .. even in the dark!!

So here are my makes.  Rudolph Day calls for two or more Christmas cards and making two very similar cuts the thinking time in half LOL!!

As most of you will know I am lazy on a Sunday and do not share my ingredients but if there is anything you want to know then you only have to ask.

Time now for the dreaded ironing board :-(

Catch you again soon.  Enjoy what is left of Sunday!

Edited to say:  

Hi Dawn C .. .. I am really sorry but I can no longer get to your blog :-(  I have been trying for a few weeks now.  You used to have a link on the first page of your Google+ but I can't see it any more so can't see any of your lovely makes.  Do I find you some other way now?  I don't do Google+  Love Jules xx

Our time changes this weekend here in the US and yes, I'm anxious for that extra hour back but I'm not anxious for it to be darker earlier. lol It will be dark at 5:30 pm on Sunday, boo to that. Now Jules, I have to say that I am so loving these two Christmas cards! That paper is gorgeous, I love that die and I don't know what you used for the berries, but I love them too. lol I also love the sentiment. Is the hear border going across ribbon?? I love that too. Yep, loving these two cards. Hugs, Brenda
