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 all had a good weekend .. .. wasn't it lovely to see some sunshine for a change?

I didn't get quite as much crafty time out in the garden as I would have liked yesterday as I needed to disappear on a good deed mission .. .. but we did manage a couple of hours late afternoon.  

We were hoping it would be nice enough to do the same again today but it has been a bit too breezy .. .. so we did some of the gardening we kept looking at yesterday instead and crafting happened indoors.  Well, I didn't want my coloured images blowing away now did I!!

Anyway .. .. determined not to miss entering the Christmas Kickstart Challenge I needed to get my glitter, sparkle and shine out as that is the theme for this fortnight .. .. and this is what I made:

This used:

Image:  Whipper Snapper "BY802" Let It Snow Snowmen
Sentiment Die:  Memory Box "98680" Merry Christmas
Glitter Card
Crystal Glamour Dust
Peel Off Waste

So that is me for today and Christmas card number 31 goes into the box.  Short and sweet and sparkling and shining .. .. .. as I now have glitter all over my face .. .. again!!!!

Thank you for all your lovely comments on my post of yesterday.  You are all so very kind and understanding.
