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

I didn't want to scare you away by giving this post the title of .. .. yet another Christmas card .. .. so I decided to tempt you with the colour purple instead LOL!!!

Here is my little share of the day:

This used:

Image:  Hampton Art "RS4817" Group Of Presents
Backing Papers:  Papermania
Sentiment:  "Happy Christmas" =
:  HobbyArt Clear Stamps "Christmas Greeting Set"
Sentiment:  "Just For You" = Pink Petticoat
Cuttlebug Snowflake Die
Glamour Dust
Diamond Stickles

So that is my quick share for the day.  Nothing earth shattering but I am happy with it!!

My turn to create a culinary delight tonight so I am off to get that prepared ahead of The Apprentice (woo hoo) .. .. ..  and a jump around blogland to see what you have all been up to.

Have a lovely evening whatever you are up to.

An unusual and refreshing colour for a christmas card, and a young fresh style.Unfortunately it's always my turn to cook, even if i've been on one of my 11 hour shifts, i blame my mother,lol. Tradition has a lot to answer for.
