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 you have had a good day.

How has the weather been with you?  It has been dull, wet and very windy in my neck of the woods.  Thank goodness I didn't need to go out in it that's all I can say.

Today it was my turn to post my projects over at Get Funky! in line with the theme set by my lovely Funky Playmate, Jackie.

A Christmas project using "Traditional colours"
meaning red, green, gold, silver etc


A non Christmas card or project using Christmas papers

So here are my creations, both made using the Twelve Crafters Crafting CD.

We don't post all our creations at the same time over at Get Funky! but instead each Funkette posts every two or three days so that you get a whole month of inspiration for using Anice's downloads and CDs.

I must admit after a few weeks on mainly Christmas card makes it was quite a refreshing change to make a non-Christmas one!!

So that is me for today .. .. back now to wedding stationery duties and hopefully a blog catch up later if all goes to plan (and my eyes stay open) LOL!!!

Have a great evening everyone.

It was a beautiful morning here, Jules. I walked into town and was ready to take my coat off coming back, it was so warm but by lunchtime it was blowing a gale and pouring with rain. Talk about changeable.
Both your cards are beautiful. I haven't made many Christmas cards at all this year so it's lovely to see other peoples makes.
Hugs Lisax
