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 Friday has gone well.

I thought of everyone who might be at the NEC and wondered what goodies might be on show!  I love going .. ..  if only to watch the demonstrations and learn something new.  There is still so much I need to learn!!

No visit for me this time round though :-( 

But on the bright side .. .. I do have another Christmas card to share!  Are you sick of them yet?  LOL!!!

This one used:

Image:  Pink Petticoat "Christmas Diva Doodles"
Sentiment: Computer Generated using font Zipty Do
Backing Papers:  Dovecraft " Noel" .. .. another one of last year's purchases!
X-Cut:  Corner Rounding Punch
Dovecraft Punch:  Holly Leaves
My Trust Sewing Machine
Metallic Gel pen that you can hardly notice in the pictures
Glamour Dust
Pearls and Ribbon from my Stash Box

and that it is!!

I think my camera likes red and green.  Funny how cameras seem to prefer some colours to others!!

My very late fish and chip supper is ready now so I had better make the most of being spoilt!!

Hope everyone has a lovely weekend and I will try hard to be back tomorrow with another share.
