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.

Yippee .. .. the House of Hearts has a decorated Christmas tree .. .. but no crafty makes to share today :-(

It has taken far too long to move the furniture around in the front room and clean the disgusting skirting board that was behind the furniture we moved !!  Eekkk.  What would Kim and Aggie say????

We still have boxes of decorations everywhere that need putting out and about but at least the tree is up and is looking good.

There are also presents still to wrap but guess who has run out of sellotape?????  (No way am I wasting my double sided tape!!!).

Here are a few pictures of my tree .. it has been quite difficult to take a picture that looks as nice as my tree.  I lurve it and it isn't even a Tipsy Tree LOL!!!

The Christmas Tree

My Favourite Bauble

And of course no tree would be complete
without strings of hearts!!  LOL!!!

I hope everyone has had a lovely weekend.  I am looking forward to the final of The Apprentice this evening.  I think Stella should win!!

See you tomorrow .. .. with a make to share I hope!!  I have missed not making anything today and have all these ideas buzzing round in my head torturing me.. .. what am I like?

We can't believe our eyes, I say "we" cos I've been telling mum about it as I always show her your cards, so now she keeps asking me "has she put her tree up yet?" and today I could say YES!

She said she was very impressed, good on you!

YAY, And I love it too, awesome to see, Thanks for sharing with us!
