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 you are all well.

Sorry for missing a couple of evening this week.  I have been busy finishing off all my Christmas card orders and think that I may be there with those now.  My aim was to get them all posted out by the end of November and it is looking like I might have a big tick on that line of my "crafty do list".

I still need to finish all of the ones we want to send ourselves though .. .. .. hence my week of "quick makes" .. .. and this is quick make number six. 

Just one more to day to go. 

This is today's offering:

This used:

Image:  Penny Black "3057K" Leaping Deer
Sentiment:  Penny Black "30-310" Believe
Background:  Huckleberry Hearts "Watercolour Clip Art" (a digital background .. .. much quicker than waiting for paint to dry!!)
Memory Box Die "99031" Snowflake Heart for the silver stars
My Trusty Sewing Machine

and that is me for today.

Once again my photographs have decided to present themselves in reverse order .. .. but never mind.

Hopefully the weekend will see me catch up with myself and with all your lovely blogs.  This has been one very busy week one way or another.

Dear Jules, what a lovely card, I love the background ! It's a great idea to make it with ink or paint. I also need more Christmas cards than expected, in these Corona times, you want to make everyone happy with a card. Hugs, Enny
