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

Is your weather as wet and miserable as mine?  

It is too wet here to even venture down the garden to remove the cobweb that the huge spider makes across the doorway of my greenhouse.  Every day I have to break his web so I can get in .. .. .. and every day the big fat chappie has re-spun it.  I'm sure he must be feasting on my tomatoes as he is bigger every day!!!   It does make me feel cruel when I break his web but I still have loads and loads of tommies left on my plants .. .. and I need to look after them!!!.

Anyway, Christmas card mode continues in the house of hearts and here is today's share ... ..

and the close up

This used:

Image and Sentiment:  Woodware "JGCL529" Tipsy Tree
Backing Paper:  Funky Fairys Papercraft (sadly no longer in business)
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Glamour Dust
Waste dots off an old peel off sheet

I love this little tree and can see me doing lots with it.  It is also the first time I have used my gold glamour dust (only had it a year LOL!!). 

Hope you likey, likey.

Hi Jules, yes I agree its definitely a tipsy Xmas tree, must have got knocked when taking it indoors, but what a stunner youve created a gorgeous card with it.
We keep getting a spider web over our front door so it has to be moved each time we go through it. With love and hugs Shirleyxxxx
