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

Here at last!

Today has been a lovely wedding work day .. .. and tomorrow will be the same .. .. along with the rest of the week probably LOL!!!

But a quick Christmas card make just "had" to be done as I need loads of these too and as today started November what better kick up the backside could anyone have!!!  Panic!!!!!

This one shows off my favourite Christmas Henry .. .. I lurve him!!!

This used:

Image:  Whiff of Joy "Ice Skating Henry Mouse"
Backing Papers:  Funky Hand "Twelve Crafters Crafting"
Martha Stewart Punch:  Embossed Zig Zag
Hobbycraft Punch:  Large Snowflake
Cuttlebug Die:  Small Snowflake
Nestabilities:  Classic Circles Large and Classic Squares Large
Gems, button, cord from the Stash Box

I think this was my first Christmas Henry stamp a few years ago now and I loved him so much that I invested in a few others.  But none I have compare to this one .. .. but I had better ink them up to check again!

Have a lovely evening everyone.

Catch you again tomorrow.

Wow Jules, I've missed some fabulous makes while I've been busy with my littlies last week. I'm still catching up on all the jobs I didn't do while they were here, lol! Scrolling back I was particularly struck by the fabulous colours on your cards, they are right up my street at the moment.

This one's a real cutie and I love the Christmas Henry stamps. I only have a couple as I don't often use cute stamps but they do make me smile every time.
