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 Tuesday .. .. and happy bonfire night!!

Yesterday I showed you my favourite make of the day .. .. but as I have only made "ONE" Christmas card today this will have to be my favourite LOL!!!

It has been a day of happy couples so there is nothing else I can share.  Unless you want to see a "do list" that has now extended well into next year!!

So there is just this little make to show:

This used:

Image:  Whiff of Joy "Uru with Bird"
Sentiment:  Papermania Urban Stamps "Christmas in The Country Tags"
Backing Papers:  First Edition Papers "Silent Night"
My Trust Sewing Machine
Pearls and Ribbon from my stash box

and that is it for today.

A bit disappointed that I only managed one Christmas card today .. .. but it is one more than I have managed other days so I will just have to take comfort in that LOL!!

Have a lovely rest of the evening everyone and if you are enjoying fireworks and bonfires then stay safe and have fun!

No bonfire party here but hubby has said he would like us to watch a film.  Oh dear .. .. I have a feeling my eyes will be shut well before the end!!

Not trying to be too smug or anything you understand but I have made absolutely zillions of Christmas Cards... but then again I haven't got a big list of 'stuff to do' unless you count cleaning, washing, ironing, shopping etc etc... LOL
Lovely image Jules and the papers are now on the 'other list' - things I HAVE to OWN!xx

Lynn said...

Lovely image Jules. Not seen an URU before! As far as your cards go, as the saying goes "they're all my favourites". I think I have been watching too much Come Dancing again, lol. Have a good week. Lynn x
