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 all is well with you.   

Swinging by today with a card for this month's Penny Black Saturday Challenge where the theme is always "anything goes" but with an optional theme of playing along with the bingo/tic tac toe board.

This is what I came us with (sorry it is another Christmas card .. .. I promise I will be drawing a line under them soon .. .. but only for a little while).

This used:

Image:  Penny Black "4014K" Hand-mailed
Sentiment:  LOTV Christmas Tag Clear Stamp Set (no longer available as a stamp but available as a digi set)
Backing Paper:  From the Snippet Box
Diamond Stickles
Crystal Glamour Dust

and here is the Bingo/Tic Tac Toe board if you fancy playing along:

I went diagonal using Patterned Papers, Penny Black Stamped Image and Clean & Simple (though I did dip my toe into the Sparkle and Shine box on my way past it LOL!!)

Hopefully catch you again soon.
