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.

Sunday 1 September 2019


Hi Everyone

Happy Sunday and Happy September  .. .. ..  where is 2019 disappearing to?

Just flying in quickly today with a card for the Christmas Kickstart Challenge where the theme this fortnight is to take your inspiration from the challenge's blog header.  What a clever theme!!

This is what I have come up with:

This used:

Image and sentiment from "Digistamp Boutique" sadly no longer trading .. .. boo hoo (please come back!!)
Backing Papers from "The Works" 
Crystal Glamour Dust
Snowflakes from my snowflake box
Creative Expressions "Aqua Dazzlers"
My Trusty Sewing Machine

So after all my ramblings of yesterday today is short and sweet and Christmas card number 37 goes into my box .. .. woo hoo!!

Hopefully catch you again tomorrow.
