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.

Hi Everyone

I hope you have had a good Monday.

Today I was in Christmas mode and this was my favourite of the ones I completed today:

This used:

Image:  Lili of the Valley "Holly Tree"
Sentiment:  Pink Petticoat "Signature Christmas Sentiments"
Backing Papers:  Papermania "A Silent Night"
Distress Ink:  Old Paper
X-Cut Punch:  Corner Rounder
My Trust Sewing Machine
Glossy Accents
Ribbon and Pearls from my stash box

and that is me for today.

Off to try and catch up with a few blogs now!!

Another fabulous card Jules! Beautiful LOTV stamp and fabby colouring - gorgeous result as always.

So funny, my QCME magazine arrived yesterday (seems the postal strike has held things up a bit) - one look and there I spotted your 'baubles' card on the front cover, so distinctively you :) Great article inside with the other ones you made too.

Hugs, Di xx

Hi Jules, Popped back to check on the b/fly heart. Yep, missed that, I was so busy looking at the wreath! Love this holly topiary & what fab coloring. I loved the traditional colors of the holly against the neutrals & stripes you used as the background. Super card. Hugs & TFS
