My photo
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 your day has been good and not disrupted too much with rain and floods.

The roads have been absolute chaos here with our main roadway (the A38) being completely closed and causing mayhem all around.  We have the threat of heavy rain tonight and who knows what the roads could be like tomorrow!!!

But for now we will forget all of that and simply look at a Christmas card .. ..

This used:

Image:  Penny Black "1506J" Just Wishing You
Sentiment:  Digistamp Boutique "Simply Christmas Greetings"
Backing Papers:  Dovecraft Back to Basics Christmas "Vintage"
Nestabilities:  Scalloped Circle Large and Classic Circle Large
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Snowflakes:  Sizzix Die "Winter Wonder"
White Gel Pen
ProMarkers and Chalks
Glamour Dust
Ribbon (from Lidl  .. .. a pack of three rolls .. .. all different and all gorgeous!!)

So that is me for today.  Just think this time next month Boxing Day will nearly be over :-( and if you are anything like my Mum the Christmas decorations and cards will be being put away tomorrow LOL!!!

I'll catch you again tomorrow.
