A very warm welcome to my teeny, tiny part of the huge world of blogging. This is where I 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 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

Well I have been very naughty and neglected my efforts at early Christmas card making - I'll be sorry come December!!!

So to make amends here I am with my card for the Winter Wonderland Challenge. This week the theme is "Christmas Past".

Here is my creation

Here is what I used to make it:

Image: Stampendous! P106 "Mother Child"
The beautiful star is an unmarked stamp
Backing Paper: Funky Hand Download "Funky Christmas Time"
Embossing Powder: Heat It Up "Silver Pearl"
Fiskars Corner Rounding Punch
Brads and ribbon from the stash box

I can't believe that the lovely star stamp is unmarked. I think it is beautiful when embossed and all the little swirls appear!

I hope everyone has had a lovely day - catch you again soon.

Love Jules xx

Beautiful Jules, that image is so angelic.

The butterfly punch is XCut, got it from a local stationers cum craft shop, if you have probs getting it let me know as sure I can get them to order another one in.
