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 Thursday .. .. (why does it feel like it should be Tuesday?!?!?)

I hope all is well with everyone .. .. and if not that it improves very, very soon.

I am trying to get a few Christmas cards put to one side .. .. but this year I doing something different to normal.  I am making ones to put to one side for our own use.  Normally I make for customers first and ours end up being made in one mad rush come early December.  

But this year November and December are going to be swallowed up by wedding work, so I need to be working on Christmas whenever I get chance.  Good job I love making Christmas cards.

So here we go with today's creation:

This used:

Image:  DigiStamp Boutique "Large Christmas Pups"  
Sentiment:  DigiStamp Boutique taken from "Annie All Occasions"
Background:  DigiStamp Boutique "Snowy Backgrounds"
X-Cut Die:  "Happy Christmas" (which includes the scrummy little holly die")
Crystal Glamour Dust

and that is it.  Another for my Christmas box.

.. .. .. and for anyone else who is in Christmas mode (or who like me collects images when they are a bargain) .. .. .. DigiStamp Boutique have 30% off all of their Christmas images/sentiments until the 17th June.

A bit blustery here .. ..  and not much sunshine .. .. Mum is going to need to be well wrapped up for today's outing .. .. but with the wind behind us the wheelchair is going to flow well.  (But not too good when the wind is head on!!!).

Enjoy your day everyone.

Hoping to catch up with everyone's blogs soon!!!!

Oh, what a lovely card, those dogs are so cute ! Yes, we had rain and cold wind today, not so nice, after being spoiled with sunshine these last weeks. I make at least 1 Christmas card a week, with a Dutch group :, so in December, I already have about 50 cards, and it's not so stressy at the end.
Hope you had a nice outing with your mother. All the best ! Enny

I love this card Jules, such a lovely happy (or should I say 'yappy') card, those pups are such fun and your design is fabulous. You are so organised, I haven't even thought about Christmas yet - other than DT work that is!
I hope your walk with Mum went well - the weather turned out quite nice here after a cloudy start.

Good for you for getting at those Christmas cards worked on Jules! Nov and Dec weddings sound so romantic, but I'm sure makes for hectic months with the holidays added in. I am loving this adorable card that just makes me smile! So cute, so wonderfully colored. You always make the cutest cards my friend! Hope the outing wasn't to hard on you and your mum. Hugs, Brenda
