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.

Sunday 25 November 2012


Hi Everyone

I hope you have all had a great Sunday.

Well today hasn't been as bad weather-wise here as we were expecting.  I hope you can all say the same!!

My share today is for my weekly trek along to the snippet playground .. .. and it nicely ties in with Rudolph Day too (the last one for 2012) as the next time the 25th of the month comes along we will all be celebrating Christmas Day itself!!   Eeeeekkkkk!!!!!   

Must make more Christmas cards LOL!!!

So here we go:

As always I am lazy on a Sunday and do not list my ingredients but if you have any questions then just ask away.

So this little make is going to be linked to:

Pixie's Crafty Snippet Challenge


Sandra's Rudolph Day Challenge

I hope you get chance to check both challenges out .. .. they are great fun.

Have a lovely evening everyone and I will catch you again tomorrow - no doubt with yet another Christmas card.

Thankfully we have got away so far with this terrible weather too and have even seen some sunshine today but my heart really goes out to all those suffering. It must be so horrible to be flooded.

Aww what an adorable image Jules!! he's so cute! Love the pretty papers and ribbon/charm detail…. and love those nailheads… I have asked Santa for one of those Kandy Kane wands... I spend so long struggling with sticking gems and trying not to let any glue show... I'm really hoping it is easier with the hot fix! :-)
Hope you have a good day!
Big Hugs

Sarn said...

Hi Jules . .. I LOVE the background paper and the layout of this card, plus the sweet snowflake dangly! Oh and the duck, of course!

Thanks for entering my little challenge.

Sarn xxx

MissyG said...

Lovely card - just wondering how you managed to print the sentiment as I can only get the complete page of them printed which limits the size of the area you can put them on- like the way you have put it at the bottom of the strip
