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 that you have had a really good Saturday.  A much more pleasant day here temperature wise that's for sure.

Both our youngest Son and my Mum were into the snooker when I called on them yesterday, sadly they drew me in and I have ended up watching it today.  Thank goodness it is the final this weekend and I haven't got interested early on in the tournament!!  LOL!

Today my crafty play session used one of my scrapling cards, which are the leftovers I have after cutting my base cards from an A4 piece of card.  I trim them down a little more though so they finish up measuring 6.5 x 13.5cms.

This used:

Image:  Penny Black "1873H" Xmouse Ornament!
Sentiment:  Hobby Art Ltd "CS144D" Christmas Frostings
Backing Paper:  Wallpaper as mentioned in my post here 
Distress Ink Pad:  Stormy Sky
Snowflake Charm
Nailhead Heart
Crystal Glamour Dust
My Trusty Sewing Machine

So that is me for today with another Christmas card added to my box.  But only my third for August.  Still another two to go!

I am taking my card over to the Christmas Kickstart Challenge where the theme this fortnight is "snow is falling".  Hopefully it doesn't matter that a mouse is hanging onto the snowflake LOL!!.

They just don't get much cuter than this! Beautiful background for the little mouse and that snowflake looks amazing with the sparkle and tiny heart inside! Beautiful bow and charm to tie it all together perfectly!

OMGoodness, this is cute, cute card! I love that image and I love how you inked around this cutie. The added gems to the snowflake is the perfect amount of bling too. Glad you hear that the temps are feeling better for you all, ours went down big time too and are just perfect with a little bit of gentle rain. Hugs, Brenda

Great image and a really lovely background, super creation. We have just had the heaviest downpour that we have had for years.
