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!

Not sure where this week is disappearing to .. .. all I know is that it has been a super busy one so far .. .. hence it taking me nearly three days to create a card and to actually get it onto my blog!   My happy couples that are having Christmas weddings are certainly keeping me nice and busy.

I don't know why but for some reason I feel a Christmas wedding must be super romantic .. .. perhaps it is because I love Christmas so much.

There is so much I want to do that I am nearly begrudging having to sleep!  What a waste of time that seems LOL!!!

But anyway, here we go:

This used:  

Image:  Stampin' Up "White Christmas" stamp set
Sentiment:  Inkylicious "Walking Winter Wonderland" - one of my favourite Christmas sentiment stamps
Backing Papers:  Docrafts "Forever Friends Kraft Notes"
Crystal Glamour Dust
White Gel Pen
Black Fineliner Pen
Snowflakes and stars from my snowflake box

The background paper already had some subtle dots on it and I added to them using white Stazon ink and a snow stamp from the White Christmas set.  I was hoping they might show up a little more than they have.

Once again quite an old stamp set  .. .. but one I love playing with.

Must fly.  Loads to do before I go and see what Mum has been up to, and take her out for a stroll to look at all the lovely Christmas decorations in the shops.

Hope you are all having a good week.

A super card Jules, you have created a lovely winter scene.
I have to agree, a Christmas Wedding does sound romantic - especially if it snows.

Hola Jules! A mí también me gusta mucho la Navidad, aunque aún no he comenzado con las decoraciones en mi blog, mientras estoy disfrutando e inspirándome de vuestras creaciones. La tarjeta te quedó muy bonita, es muy fina y delicada, la imagen es preciosa y el entorno que has creado con esos copos de nieve me han gustado mucho!
Tienes un blog lleno de encanto, me quedo de seguidora!
