A very warm welcome to my teeny, tiny part of the huge world of blogging. This is where I am hoping to 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 always 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.

CHRISTMAS LOVE

Hi Everyone

I hope your Sunday has been a good one.

A nice relaxing one here which has seen me working on a batch of intricate wedding invitations .. .. .. ..  whilst Mr Heart has been watching a bit of the old footie.

I decided to have a little break from the invites though and make a Christmas card as I am nowhere near the five I would like to have by the end of January (I thought five a month would be a good target if I could manage it .. .. and so far I only have one!!).

I decided to play along with the CAS Christmas Card Challenge for January where the theme is to "include a tag" and as I have included a penguin in my design I can also have another entry into the Christmas Kickstart Challenge where the theme is "penguin parade".

So here we go:




This used:

Image:  My Lovely Studio "Ice Christmas"  (sorry cannot see where to link to)
Backing Paper:  My Lovely Studio "Jingle Bells Book Print"
ProMarkers
Dovecraft Snowflake Embossing Folder
Washi Tape
Diamond Stickles
White Gel Pen
Ribbon
My Trusty Sewing Machine

and that is me for today .. .. and Christmas card number two has gone into the stock box!
