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

Apologies for being so very late tonight with my last three Christmas cards for March .. .. .. for some reason my computer wasn't recognising the memory card with my pictures on .. .. no matter how many times I tried. 

I restarted my computer several times but still no joy.  

In the end I re-started it with the memory card in place and for some reason it recognised it then.  I hope it is in a better mood tomorrow when it has had a rest overnight!

So here are my cards .. .. ..

These used:

Image:  Docrafts  "PMA 907941" Bellissima Christmas
Sentiment:  Dovecraft Christmas Basics
Gold Mirri Card
Gold Gems

I decided to hit the scraplings again for these cards and do a quick batch of three all the same.  I loved making them and could have happily made thirty of them.  They were so quick and easy to do with the help of a stamping platform.

It was quicker to actually make them than it was to get the pictures onto my blog post!! LOL!!!

I am taking these over to Fezziwigs Festive Frolics Challenge where the theme this fortnight is super easy "anything festive"!

I'll catch you again soon .. .. .. when hopefully my laptop will be in a better mood!!

These are super and I love that the motif is off centre. Good luck with your computer this morning - mine is on a very go-slow with pages taking forever to load presumably because so many folks are using the internet.

Dear Jules, your cards are lovely ! So good of you to start sowing vegetables, the farmers in Europe already talk about a possible shortage. Another month of quarantaine (at least) but we keep up hope ! All the best to you and your family ! Love, Enny

Classy as ever Jules and I do like the way you have stamped off the page! I have to say Christmas is not the 'C' word on my mind at the moment!! xx

I love these cards, simple but stunning. I never make them early as I am always wary of the gems etc falling off and making more work in December. Plus, I never seem to have the time haha.
