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

Flying in and out quickly tonight because someone isn't supposed to be posting at this moment in time  (well she wasn't supposed to even be making a card either) LOL!!

So before I am in trouble here we go with a love letter to "The Man Himself" and his trusty pal!!

This used:

Images and Sentiments:  Marianne Design - Eline's Owls EC0142 "Dear Santa"
Backing Paper:  Pink Petticoat "Christmas Script"
Hobby Craft Punches:  Snowflakes
Woodware Punch:  Postage Stamp
Glamour Dust
A small envelope and scrap of paper from a shorthand notebook
Distress Ink:  Stormy Sky
Metallic Cord from my Stash Box

and that is me for today.

Short and sweet.  Enjoy the rest of your evening.

Catch you again tomorrow.

This is adorable, Jules! I've just had a scroll stroll down a few days and enjoyed it hugely. I should be a good friend and leave a comment on each post, but I'm too knackered. I do want you to know that your wedding creations were simply stunning. LOVE the idea of the postal box to keep it all together and safe! See you on the monkey bars!!

hope you are well and didn't get into too much trouble for being naughty and blog posting when you shouldn't have been - the results WERE worth it though.

Big hugs
