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

I hope you have had a good weekend.

Definitely not the glorious weather we had last week .. .. .. but at least the gardens received some of the rain they are needing. 

Here with my Christmas make for this week.  Just the one this time as there is a lot happening here at the moment and even one card was a bit of a stretch .. .. hence the late night posting!!

This used:

Image:  Lili of the Valley Digital Image"Skating Bunny"
Sentiment:  Computer Generated
Backing Papers:  Free with a magazine "ages and ages ago"
White Gel Pen
Glamour Dust
Snowflakes from my crammed full snowflake box
Metallic Ribbon
Creative Expressions Aqua Dazzler Circle Embellishment
My Trusty Sewing Machine

My card is for sharing with a couple of challenges:

The Christmas Kickstart Challenge .. .. where the theme this fortnight is "Christmas Bunnies"


The Rudolph Days Challenge for April .. .. .. where anything goes as long as it is Christmas

This now brings my Christmas card tally to 24!  Woo hoo!!!  Building up nicely!

Catch you again soon.

A gorgeous card Jules. A pretty winter scene and great detail as always. Sorry I haven't replied but I have had a bit of a strange week. Including 2 hospital visits with a friend of mine. I have kept your email and will reply. Hugs, Carol

Oh, I did leave a comment 2 days ago, but it didn't seem to have gone through!
Some problem with Blogger, I guess. Such a lovely and cute card, and I love the little heart on the Christmas tree! All the best ! Enny
