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

A quick Christmas card this evening that is for taking over rather smartish to Fezziwigs Festive Frolics Challenge.  The challenge is nearly over so I had better run quickly .. .. ..

The theme this fortnight has been "Decorating the Tree" and this is my very late decorated tree:

This used:

Christmas Tree Die:  MFT "MFT-1429" Christmas Tree Window
Backing Papers:  Make & Create "Magical Christmas"
Glossy Accents
My Trusty Sewing Machine

and that is me for today.

I hope you all had a lovely weekend.  I had my wedding work boxes out again .. .. my remaining "happy couples" have their wedding dates coming up in the first half of next year and I was revisitng  their boxes and making new stationery for them.  I do hope all is going to go ahead smoothly for them this time around.  They have already cancelled their weddings once and will have waited a whole year for their special day to come around again..

Hope all good with you....have had a busy few weeks, since I went back to work, so not had as much blog time as I would have liked.
