My photo
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 has got off to a good start.

I am still battling on with Christmas and today played along with the Christmas Kickstart Challenge which this fortnight is looking for "Pink Christmas" in honour of Breast Cancer Awareness month.

There are some pictures for us to take inspiration from too.

This is what I created:

This used:

Image:  Whimsy Dreams ClipArt "Christmas Wreath"
Sentiment:  Penny Black "30-310" Believe (what makes you think it was still on my desk from yesterday?)
Hearts and snowflakes from their respective boxes
My Trusty Sewing Machine

I hope you get chance to play along.

Once again Mr Blogger has decided to re-arrange the order of my photographs.  Perhaps he considers his choice of layout to be better than mine.

Catch you again tomorrow folks .. .. enjoy your weekend .. .. as best you can!

That is beautiful I see a lot of pink about this christmas. I personally like the traditional colours, but perhaps I should be bold and go for a change.

A really lovely wreath, lovely subtle shades of pink and the leaves on the wreath are also a lovely subtle colour too, at a guess I would go for tuqouice.
