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 Thursday!

I hope it has been a good day for you .. .. still very dull, miserable and wet here and not a very good evening for those wanting to let their fireworks off  .. .. .. not that it is stopping people somewhere near .. .. lots of bright colours in the sky and bangs galore!!!

But never mind, even if it is miserable weather outside it is still happy and sparkly in the old craft pod.  Glitter EVERYWHERE!!! LOL!!

So another Christmas share tonight which uses that fabulous postcard stamp.  I love this stamp, very, very much and used it to make this:

This used:

Image:  Stampendous "Snowy Postcard"
Sentiment:  Lili of the Valley "Christmas Tags"
Backing Papers:  First Edition Papers "Vintage Noel"
Lots and Lots of Glamour Dust
Ribbon, Pearls and Cord from My Crafty Stash Box

and there we go .. .. another one finished.

There is a new sketch for tomorrow .. .. just need to make something using it now!!

Catch you soon.
