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 your day has gone well.

Today I am playing along with the new Fezziwigs Festive Frolics Challenge which this fortnight would like to see "clean and simple" Christmas cards with lots of clean white space and minimum embellishments and am also adding a second card into the Christmas Kickstart Challenge where we are encouraged to "Make a Scene" (something my Mum would never approve of!  LOL!!).

This used:

Sentiment:  Stampendous! Cling Stamp "CRH296" Joyeux Noel
Snippet of dotty design paper
Aperture Card Base
Memory Box Dies:  "998257" Modern Landscape Border and "99031" Snowflake Heart
My Trusty Sewing Machine

and that is me for today with my fourth Christmas card for April.  Just one more to go this month.

I still struggle with lots of white space but I am hoping that the more I try the more comfortable I will feel with it.

See you again soon .. .. can you believe it is nearly the weekend again!!  Where did this week whizz off to?

Love your Christmas card and white is always stunning together but like how you’ve added a splash of colour.
As you say another weekend gone by....enjoy your weekend.

This is a great addition to your Christmas card collection and just right for the challenge (one I'd not come across before). Surprising just how quickly the weekends seem to come around although I do have to check regularly to make sure I'm on the right day

Ha! Great play on the 'make a scene' meaning! Great card too, love the contrast of the black and white, really gorgeous. Thanks for playing at Christmas Kickstart, hope to see you join in with future challenges too. Keep safe, stay home and craft instead.
