My photo
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 think I jinxed the weather this morning when I posted about how lovely the sunshine was today.

Not long after that it started to rain and it hasn't really stopped much since.  Sorry about that !!  LOL!!!

Here is one of my creations of the day.  

This used:

Image:  Woodware "JGCL504" Christmas Bubble Tree
Sentiment:  Woodware:  "JGCL529" Tipsy Tree
Backing Paper:  Sorry I don't know .. .. it is some old Christmas stash that I have from way back when it didn't matter who made what
Hobbycraft Punch:  Snowflake
Gold Embossing Powder
Glamour Dust
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Star Dust Stickles
Ribbon and Eyelet from the stash box

The second photograph was taken at a bit of a strange angle but I wanted you to be able to see the gold embossing.

I hope you all have a good evening.  I will catch you again tomorrow .. .. and I promise to give you a break from Christmas cards and post something different LOL!!.

I'm always either catchin up or apologising for being behind! I do love this card and think I might do my own version if you don't mind. I have this stamp and have only ever used the tiny tree to replace the A in a large word of PEACE. Your card is very effective Julies and elegant in a contemporary way. Lovin it! Hugs, Lesley
