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

Well the Christmas cards will soon be coming to an end .. .. and I must admit I'm not fed up with making them yet .. .. ..  must be because I love Christmas LOL!!!

Tonight's card uses my favourite paper stack of all time .. .. my Ella Blue from GCD Studios. 

I bought this last Christmas and it is still going strong.  Love it to pieces still!!

Here is my make:

This used:

Image:  Penny Black "3741K" Filigree Tree
Sentiment:  Pink Petticoat
Backing Paper:  GCD Studios "Ella Blue"
Martha Stewart Punch:  Traditional Scallop
Nestabilities:  Classic Circle and Classic Scalloped Circle
Ribbon, Cord and Self Adhesive Pearls from the Stash Box

I hope all is well with everyone and that you have managed to keep warm today.  We started off with a good frost here .. .. and boy has it been cold today!!!!!

Sorry if I haven't called around your blog recently.  I have a lot of wedding work to get through before the start of the Christmas break .. .. but I promise I will catch up with everyone eventually.

Hi Jules, what a gorgeous card. I can see why you love those papers so! They are really elegant and perfectly match your style in my opinion.

Thanks for your lovely good wishes on my blog today. Now you know why I've been AWOL. I think it's likely to be the New Year before I get back to any semblance of normalcy, lol!

Good luck getting your Wedding makes done before Christmas.
