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 weekend got off to a good start.

Our weather was beautiful early doors .. .. .. but went downhill very quickly .. .. .. ending up with rain, rain and more rain.

As it definitely wasn't a super sunny day I decided to make my final Christmas card for August. This is for taking over to Fezziwig's Festive Frolics Challenge where the theme this fortnight is "Santa's Little Helpers".  So many helpers to choose from but I decided Santa would really struggle big time without Rudolph.

This used:

Image:  Bugaboo Digital Stamp "Xmas Trio Block" There was a snowman as part of the trio but I cropped the him off as I decided he might delay the delivering of special parcels if he started melting mid delivery.
Sentiment:  Woodware Clear Magic "FRS771" Merry & Bright
Backing Paper:  Pink Petticoat
Chalks for Rudolph's rosy cheeks
Crystal and Gold Glamour Dust
My Trusty Sewing Machine

Enjoy the rest of your weekend everyone.

Santa definitely needs his reindeer helpers, especially Rudolph! Another gorgeous card, the snowflake paper sets everything off, so beautifully.

A wet miserable day here yesterday too, my dogs were not impressed with their walk being cut short

Ahh this is super sweet, I agree, a Snowman may melt and cause issues on the deliveries!!! Been quite a cold but dry weekend here thankfully. Thanks for joining in with me over on Fezziwigs, Hazel xx

OMGosh, this is a cute, cute, cute Christmas card Jules! I love Bugaboo digital stamps, they are so cute and you have made them look even cuter with your beautiful coloring! I had to laugh at why you took the snowman off this set, yes, it would be a problem if he started melting mid delivery. lol Love this, it is just so darling! Hugs, Brenda
