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 been lovely and sunny!

The hottest day of the year so far .. .. .. so I thought I would cool myself down with a Christmas card!

This used:

Image:  Penny Black "3986J" Crystal Wreath
Sentiment:  Hero Arts "DC170" Merry Stamp and Cut
White Embossing Powder
Brilliance Ink Pad "Coffee Bean"
My Trusty Sewing Machine

This is for taking over to the Christmas Kickstart Challenge where they would like to see a Christmas Wreath or Wreaths on your creation and also to Fezziwigs Festive Frolics where the theme is "anything goes as long as it is Festive".

I actually prepped to make three of these cards so another two to put together and my Christmas stock box will be a little fuller!  Yay!!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend everyone.

My snippets will be being put to good use tomorrow!  Hope I can find some! (only joking .. .. .. I feel I could craft with just snippets for a year and still have some left over!!!)
