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 Monday .. .. I hope you had a good weekend and the day has been kind to you.

Here with another much needed Christmas card for the collection.

This used:

Image:  Penny Black "1506J" Just Wishing You
Sentiment:  Lili of the Valley "Christmas Tags"
Backing Papers:  Kaisercraft "North Pole"
Glamour Dust
Diamond Stickles
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Ribbon and Cord from my crafty stash box
and:   Sketch Five from my little Sketch Library Tab

and that is it!!

Talking of Twinkle and Sparkle, I had a lovely smile to myself today.  The burglar alarm chaps came to give our system its annual service  .. .. we exchanged pleasantries and I disappeared on drink making duties whilst they got to work.  The next time they appeared one of them had all glittery specks all over his face .. .. I'm sure they weren't there when I was speaking to him before!!  I wonder if his workmate told him later.

I didn't bother telling him because from experience I find that they are just impossible to remove.  I can even have a shower and still come out with glittery sparkles all over me!

I told you there was glitter everywhere in the House of Hearts!! Even in the dust.  LOL!!

So that is me for today.  Teeny, tiny Tuesday tomorrow when I can't wait to show you my fabby ebay purchase from last weekend which I feel certain was created just for me!!

See you tomorrow.

Hi Jules! Long time since I managed to comment but have been peeking when you've posted your lovely cards! This is adorable - took me a while to find the heart I must confess :)

Got QCME magazine the other day through the post and too funny that you recommended the Hobby Art 'Have A Very Mice Christmas' stamp set to a reader. Would you believe that's my snippets card for this week and the same set is offer as a prize in the playground of course. Great minds huh? I squeaked when I spotted that one :)

Miss you - those girlies are a handful when the darker nights come along - pumpkins, fireworks and now plotting the Nativity play!
