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

Happy Friday!!!

I hope you have all had a good week and are looking forward to your weekend.

I have made quite a few creations today .. .. but my share is actually a little set of four cards .. .. each one just a little bit different but all basically the same.  You know .. .. the same but different!!  LOL!!!

Here we go with photograph overload .. .. .. ...

To make these I used:

Images:  Hero Arts "LP103" Holiday Birds
Sentiment:  Penny Black "30-006" Christmas Critters
Go Kreate Die: Scalloped Square
Nestabilites:  Classic Square
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Diamond Stickles
Cord from the stash box

The little Holiday Birds are actually a little box set of four small stamps.  They took me a lifetime to colour (NOT) LOL!!!

I am well behind with my blog visiting .. .. sorry folks.  I am two weeks away from my next craft fayre and it is all systems go in the House of Hearts. 

I will try to make amends over the next couple of days but if I don't get to you then please forgive me .. .. it isn't because I don't want to .. .. it is because my time is disappearing far too quickly.  Next year I really am going to make Christmas cards all year round .. .. but don't worry I promise not to post them on my blog.  There will only be me happy to see a Christmas card in February .. .. tee hee!!
Have a good evening everyone and a good weekend too, whatever you are up to.

I think I had better go and make another card now LOL!!!

See you again soon

Great idea to design a card and just jiggle it a bit to make a set. Lovely set it is too. Good luck with the Craft Fayre preparations.
