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

Happy Wednesday . .. . the week is disappearing fast!!!   Eeeekkk!!!

Just calling by very, very, quickly with another little Christmas make.

Posting interrupted half way through by the need to be a domestic goddess and provide sustenance for The House of Hearts so I'm afraid by the time we ate it the time was seriously "getting on".  Sorry :-(

This used:

Image:  Penny Black "PB-40-005" Here Comes Christmas
Sentiment:  Papermania Urban Stamps "Christmas In The Country Tags"
Backing Paper:  Nitwits "Twas The Night Too"
Glamour Dust
Ribbon and Pearls from the Stash Box

Could this be the shortest post on record from me ? .. .. very probably !!! LOL!!!

Catch you again soon.

This is such a delightful PB stamp. Love the lighter background you chose for the sky, and love the textured look of your background papers, and the red gingham bow fairly popped! TFS & Hugs

Hi Jules,

Love your cute hedgies xx
