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 Wednesday!

I hope it has been a good day for you.  We have enjoyed some lovely sunshine here today and I hope you saw the same.

So Wednesday is the day I need to use up some of that white card mountain .. .. and I have to use a whole three sqaures .. .. but I did sneak in a bit of silver card too because the card was just crying out for it!!  LOL!!!

Here we go .....

This used:

Image:  Penny Black "40-427" Pretty Perch
Sentiment and Snowflakes:  Penny Black "30-316" Season's Gifts
X-Cut Embossing Folder:  Small Polka Dots
Distress Inks:  Tumbled Glass, Stormy Sky, Weathered Wood and Spiced Marmalade
Clear Embossing Powder for the Snowflakes
Crystal Glamour Dust
Glossy Accents (for the snowdrop and the berries)
Stampendous Frantage:  Chunky White

Lots of mask making for this one, but at least they will keep for using again.

I am entering this into the Rudolph Day Challenge for October .. .. a challenge which starts on the 25th of each month .. .. where anything goes as long as it is Christmas related. 

Time now for a BIG clear up in the old craft pod.  Too many crafty goodies not in their rightful places and that isn't good!

Catch you again tomorrow .. .. sorry folks but it is going to be Christmas again!!

This is a lovely Christmas scene well worth the 'faff' of masking. Good luck with the tidying.
