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 good.

All super busy here at the moment so the days are flying by in the blink of an eye.  I can't believe it is nearly October already!

Here today with my last Christmas card for September.  All five now complete.

This one is for taking over to Fezziwigs Festive Frolics Challenge where the theme this fortnight is "Inside Out".   This means the inside has to be decorated as well as the outside and this is what I came up with:

This used:

Image:  Penny Black "2521K" Snowy used with matching die.
Sentiment:  Crafter's Companion "Festive Wishes"
Backing Paper:  The Works
Stag Die:  Sizzix "659376" Holiday Joy
Spellbinders Circle Die
Tree Die was unbranded from Amazon
White Gel Pen
Fineliner Pen
Tumbled Glass Distress Ink

and that is me for today.

Enjoy Tuesday when it arrives.

Brenda said...

Wow Jules, this is a stunning card! Leave to you to make such a intricate one. lol I've seen these before but have never made one. I love the depth and dimension, your scene is so sweet and serene. I love this little snowman and got him myself but haven't used him yet. The little trees are just the cutest and of course that stag is magnificent! Then there are your snowy hills, I can just see that stag running all over those hills. lol So beautiful is this card my friend! Hugs, Brenda
