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 hope the sun has shone for you today .. .. .. it has been beautiful here .. .. like a gorgeous summer day!!

So what do I make .. ..

A Christmas card LOL!!!

All day I have been making wedding stationery apart from this one little share:

This used:

Image:  Penny Black "1862K" Caroling Trio
Sentiment:  Great Impressions "B154" From All of Us
Backing Paper:  Funky Hand Download "Funky Little Christmas" (my fav Christmas download from Anice .. .. and use it loads and loads and loads!!)
Cuttlebug Die:  Snowflake
Ribbon:  Dovecraft
Diamond Stickles
Gems, Button and String from the Stash Box

So that is me for today.

Sorry it is short and sweet but I still have lots to do ahead of the weekend .. .. hence my reason for lack of visiting and comments.  I promise I will catch up eventually!!!

Take care everyone.

I hope you have another day of sunshine tomorrow.

Hi Jules, Thank you for your sweet comments and concern for Jim. The fires are out and he is doing fine. I've been away from blog land for a while so playing catch up tonight. So sorry to hear about your hubby. Sadly far to much of that going on around the world. Fingers crossed and prayers being said you will get the position you have applied for. Wishing you all the best this weekend as well.
Blessings Bernie
