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!

Another week has disappeared super fast .. .. .. and it has been wedding work all the way!  Hence no time to make anything for my blog unfortunately.

But I had better get my Christmas make for this week done smartish .. .. otherwise the week will be gone and a new years resolution will be broken .. .. and we can't have that happening so early into the new year can we?!?!?

So here it is .. .. .. all ready for taking over to the Christmas Kickstart Challenge where the theme for this fortnight is "Festive Felines" .. .. ..

This used:

Image:  Digistamp Boutique "Large Christmas Cats" (very sadly no longer trading boo hoo!!!)
Sentiment:  Computer generated using font "Zipty Do"
Distress Inks:  Faded Jeans and Weathered Wood for a watercoloured sky
White Embossing Powder
Crystal Glamour Dust
Snowflake stamp with no name .. .. but a favourite that never gets put away.  It has sat on my desk for years being a Christmas present that my Nieces bought me 

and that is it!  Christmas card number 5 into the box. Woo hoo!  I must admit I am really enjoying making Christmas cards in a more relaxed manner.

Hoping to catch you again over the weekend ... have a good one everyone!!

What a fun row of Christmas kitties!! A couple look less than happy to be out in the snow...just like some of my own! (Although I do have a few snow-cats that look like lynxes as they stalk intrepidly through the drifts.) Wonderful coloring on your adorable snowy the sweet rosy cheeks. Awwwww....
Thanks so much for sharing your Festive Feline at the Christmas Kickstart Challenge!!
