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 are all well and have had a good day.

Sorry for the absence .. .. yet again .. .. but the house of hearts escaped for a few days .. .. which called for lots of work before we actually left .. .. and now there will be lots of work to do on our return .. .. but it is all worth the extra effort because we have had a wonderful few days away and spent some lovely time away with some very special friends.

I do need to fly in and out really quickly tonight though with a card I have thrown together since our return for entering into the Christmas Kickstart Challenge before it ends .. .. which will be happening very, very soon!!   I haven't missed entering since the challenge began and it would be a shame to spoil things now.

The theme has been "festive things with wings" and this is my offering:

Everything for this card came from the Polkadoodles "Winne Winterland - Big Kahuna" digital download .. .. love that sentiment so much!

Finishing touches being Crystal Glamour Dust, Sequin Ribbon, Twine, Charm and My Trusty Sewing Machine.

So that is me .. .. and Christmas card number 33 goes into the stock box.

Best fly before the challenges ends and hopefully I will be back again soon.
