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 Saturday!

I hope you have had a good day.

Mine has been taken up with gardening and meeting happy couples today.  Lots to do in both departments!!!

Sorry for the "no show" yesterday.  I am beginning to think that Feminine Friday needs to be changed to Flippin' Lucky if there is anything to share!  I don't know what it is about Fridays but just recently they seem to have become the busiest day of my week.

But at least I have something to share today .. .. and it is another Christmas card for that very empty stock box!

This used:

Image:  Hero Arts "K5620" and "H5629"
Sentiment:  Penny Black Transparent Stamp Set "30-310" Believe
Backing Papers:  Docrafts Forever Friends "Timeless"
Memento Ink Pad "Toffee Crunch"
Glitter Card
Diamond Stickles
Glamour Dust
X-Cut Palm Punch:  Star
Pearls from my crafty stash box

No sewing on my card today .. .. I don't think my machine would like the glitter on the glitter card.

Quite pleased with how the Memento Ink Pad matches the lovely pearlescent backing papers so well. 

.. .. and as for the heart.  Well if anyone can spot one then you will be worthy of being called "a professional heart spotter" .. .. good luck!! 

Hopefully catch you again tomorrow with my snippet make.  I think I can find a few offcuts lying around LOL!!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Love Jules xx

Hi Jules, well...after you threw down the gauntlet (so to speak), I just had to rise to the challenge and attempt to spot the heart. I expanded the middle image to as large as it would go on my tablet and I think I finally spotted a very cunningly camouflaged heart on the ...

Lovely Christmas card,using two of my favourite HA stamps.

Hugs, Pauline xx
