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 week is going well.

Sorry for the "no show" yesterday. 

I experienced one of those magical days that don't come along too often where you seem to fly through lots and lots.  Then just as I was expecting my lovely hubby to come home he sent me a text to say he was staying at work to do some overtime as they were busy .. .. so I carried on with my wedding work .. .. but then completely ran out of time to make anything to share on my blog.

Never mind .. .. I can't expect to win in all directions .. .. but I would like a whole week of days like yesterday.  It was "fandabidozi"!! 

Anyway, as I promised on Sunday I am going to try and enter Di's Snippet Challenge a whole three times this week in an attempt to get Di to reach 60 entries.  My entry today will log in at number 36 (if no-one else jumps in first) .. .. so things look to be on track!

I am also going to scurry along to the last Rudolph Day Challenge for 2013. 

So here is my share:

This used:

Backing Papers:  Nitwits "Still Joyful Hearts Too" (you know when you haven't got too many downloads if you can still recognise which paper collection a snippet comes from).
Sentiment:  Digistamp Boutique "Simply Christmas Greetings Mixed" (fabby new download that is going to be super useful)
Marianne Design "Bell and Bauble" Die Set
Glamour Dust
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Diamond Stickles

and that is me for today.

Time to link up and then crack on.

Have a lovely day everyone.

I think it is the way everything goes together and looks so beautiful. Those are lovely dies for the ornaments!

I must remember to make a purple card as one friend does all her decorations up in purple and really appreciates if I make her a matching card!!! lol
