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

Happy Thursday.

I hope that your day has gone well. 

Today I am merging three challenges into one with this little creation:

This used:

X-Cut Large Circle Dies
Spellbinders Shapeabilities Dies "Layered Poinsettia"
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder "Snowflakes"
Distress Ink "Shabby Shutters"
LOTV Christmas Labels
Ribbon and Cord
Diamond Stickles

I am entering this little creation into the following challenges:

Fezziwig's Festive Frolicks - where the theme is to make an interactive card (hopefully my rocker card counts)

Christmas Kickstart Challenge - where the theme is "White on White" but you are allowed a "pop of colour"

Pixie's Snippets Playground -  where each fortnight we are encouraged to use up our snippets .. .. .. lots of white snippets are stashed away here that's for sure .. .. .. and a few of them were used up here.

Of course the fun with rocker cards is balancing them so they stand straight in-between rocking sessions .. .. .. I am sure the tiny heart made all the difference LOL!!

That is me for today with September Christmas card number 3 popped into the box.

I will catch you again soon.

Oh my goodness, this is a beautiful card Jules! I have not made this shape card before, but see them all over blogland. I love them, they just intimidate me as mine probably would not sit right. lol I love white on white cards and I love the pop of green you gave yours. Just beautiful for sure! Now for these rocker cards, do you start with a circle base folded in half??? Hugs, Brenda
