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

Normally my Christmas Cards are covered in snowflakes and snowmen but I seem to be in "holly mode" at the moment.

I really need to get a mountain of Christmas cards done so you may be sick of seeing them here soon - but I promise I will try to throw in the odd non-Christmas card here and there LOL!!

Here is one I have put together this morning using some new goodies.

This used:

Image: Penny Black 4008J "Overdressed duck"
Backing paper: Pink Petticoat "Fairy Lights"
Sentiment: Pink Petticoat "Tiny Tag Sentiments"
Nestabilities: Standard Circles Large
Brads and cord from my stash box

I already owned the tiny tag sentiments from Pink Petticoat but "treated myself" to the Fairy Lights download.

There are some gorgeous things on the download and there is a saving to be made on it until the end of October so if you are wondering whether to invest - well now is a good time!

Off to make something else!!

Catch you again soon

Love Jules xx

Hello Jules

Didn;t know you have this little duck fellow, isn't he gorgoues and there was you trying to say you needed more PB stamps.

All this works very well, the DP matches the image holly and looks like it was designed to to go together.

Happy crafting, get lots of Crimbos done today.

I love this overdressed duck. We had ducks in the garden for years (all gone now - an age thing) so this is a very special image for me. Love what you've done with it.
