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

What a day and what a night?

Did you have horrendous rain in the very early hours of this morning?

It was raining so heavy on our bedroom window that it woke us up twice .. .. .. and even managed to set a car alarm off!!!

Today hasn't been quite so bad but it has definitely been the sort of day where you are grateful to be tucked up in your craft pod!!

Anyway, back to a Christmas share today .. .. my other makes have been non-Christmas orders that it doesn't feel fair to post here.

This used:

Image:  Digistamp Boutique
Sentiment:  Cuddly Buddly
Backing Papers:  Raspberry Road
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Glamour Dust
Cord from the Stash Box

Well I have to admit that I have heard the sound of a robin singing .. .. but I don't remember seeing one wearing little boots!!!  LOL!!!

OK .. .. time for a bit of wedding work next.

I'll catch you again tomorrow.

That image is just adorable! I love all the stitching and the music paper is a perfect choice. :-)

Elizabeth said...

Oh yes, I heard the rain alright, I was kept awake most of the night by the sound of two of my neighbours wheelie bins rolling around the road ... the same two that never take their bins in immediately but leave them out for a several days after they've been emptied :( Another super card - love the robin in his boots.

Yes, it woke us up too, Jules. It made you glad to be cosy in bed and not out in it!!. It's been freezing here today with really heavy showers but they've forecast gales for tomorrow so I think winter had definitely arrived.
Your Robin is so cute, I love his little booties.
Good Luck with all your wedding work.
hugs Lisax

Hi Jules
What a sweet card! Love all the the elements you used. Robins do not wear shoes but your robin could be a secret shoeholic! You never know.
No rain where I live.

Gorgeous Jules!! Love the robin (of course!) and your fab papers and layout. Where do you buy your cord?

Today we took Y1 and Y2 (5 and 6 year olds) to a play centre near the Pier Head which is right by the River Mersey. The wind was so bad the staff had to form a human chain to pass the children one by one from the bus to the doorway as they were getting blown away!! Then the 'beads' came pelting from the sky and they didn't half hurt, lol!


Oh Jules - this is super-cute! The strips of vintage music sheets are perfect to go with this little carol singer. I think Robin would have needed those boots on today - the rain has been lashing down here as well.
Hugs, Sylvia xx
