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 Friday!!!

I am on the tail end of the Christmas makes so this is probably the last time you will see this fabby die I invested in during 2013.. .. but it will definitely be here again next year that's for sure.

So here is my share for today

This used:

Memory Box Die:  Grand Merry Christmas
Backing Paper:  Nitwits "FQB Woodland Wishes"  (Random snippet behind the die cut)
Cuttlebug:  Snowflake die and Embossing Folder  .. .. I don't think this is still available though :-( sorry
Ribbon, embossing powder, charm and a brad (with its legs cut off) from my stash box

Short and sweet and very late so I will fly in an out.

Catch you over the weekend.  Have a good one!

Love and hugs

A fabulous Lady after my own heart, I have loved this die and the cards that you have made with it Jules and I have also wondered if I would be able to use it again next year and if you are going to, then so am I.
Probably be casing some of your cards lol.
Sorry if I missed commenting on some of your post but I have had eye surgery so sort of kept off the internet a bit.
Oops this is another fabulous make,

This card is fantastic! I definitely need to invest in that die too! So cool~ Love the red and white colours, makes it very elegant!

I too love this die and it looks gorgeous with the paper. The die does so much of the work you don't need much else to create gorgeous card but your finishing touches certainly finish it of beautifully.
Have a lovely weekend.
