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 gone well.

My day has been a good "clearing up" one .. .. but there is still plenty more to do.

Back to Christmas here with this quick and simple card:

This used:

Sentiment:  Kaisercraft Clear Stamps "North Pole"
Craft Sensations "Floral Dreams" (for the navy blue and white spotted paper)
Make & Create "Merry and Bright" (for the red and white strip)
More of that glitter wallpaper sample for the back of the die cut
Die "Unbranded" from Amazon
My Trusty Sewing Machine

and that is me for today and November Christmas card number one goes into the box.

I'll catch you again soon.

Great start to your November card collection. Glitter background looks fine behind the scene but I might think twice about having in on the wall.

I love that your card is so detailed (your stitching always wows me) and yet is flat for posting , just perfect . Glad you liked Winnie ,she is perfect for me , very tiny and light weight and doesn't need grooming or long walks .Also she is so cute and rocks girl pink clothes , I never had a girl to dress before.

Hi Jules
Glad you're staying safe and still crafting.
I'm loving your Christmas cards, especially this silhouette card and the teeny tiny folded duck card.
I'm hoping to get back to it this week, life's pretty strange isn't it? Everyone is working from home here so I can't fill the table with card stuff!

Take care

Hi Jules,

Love this die and kept meaning to get it. I have had the longer one for a couple of years. They make life much easier and make beautiful cards.

Hope you are not running round too much!!
Love and hugs,
