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 hope your day is going well and those Christmas plans are coming together.

Mr Heart finished work on Wednesday so we have been able to make an early start on delivering parcels etc.

Perhaps this is going to be the first year we will be able to actually chill and enjoy Christmas Eve ahead of Santa arriving.  I don't know about you but Christmas Eve has always been my most favourite day of the year.

On the bad side my tumble drier has decided to die and a replacement isn't going to be delivered until the first week in January .. .. so at the moment the House of Hearts looks like Mrs Wishy Washy has moved in with washing draped everywhere .. .. because it certainly isn't going to dry outside!!

But never mind.   People managed before they were invented so I am sure we can cope for a few days. 

I am here with a quick share today that uses an image I couldn't wait to colour and decorate .. .. what a lovely thought .. .. loading up your car with Christmas goodies to share with family or friends!

This used:

Image and Sentiment:  DigiStamp Boutique "Loaded up for Christmas"
Backing Papers:  Dovecraft:  12 x 12 Christmas Basics
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Ribbon and Embellishments from my crafty stash box

and that is me for today.

I am going to link up to the DigiStamp Boutique Customer Competition for December and then I am off to deliver a little bit more Christmas cheer to family and friends before it gets dark!!!

Have a lovely evening everyone.
