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.

FESTIVE FROLICS CHALLENGE

Hi Everyone

Last year (2020) I took part in quite a few challenges to increase my stock of Christmas cards throughout the year.  Come December I was so pleased I had as it made the run up to the "big day" far less stressful than in previous years.  So lovely to have a box all ready for sending.

One of the challenges I entered throughout the year was Hazel's Festive Frolics Challenge and to round the challenge year off we are being asked to post our Favourite 5 makes.

I really enjoyed this challenge and managed to enter quite a few times.  These were my favourite five:





and of course this last one has to feature 
because it was my favourite Christmas make of 2020


So that is my post for today.

Once again I had the chance for a long lie in this morning .. .. .. but as always I was keen to start the day and got up early!  Stupid really because I only end up creeping about so I don't wake Mr Heart up. 

Hope you are all having a lovely weekend.

Great to re-visit these lovely cards. Making seasonal cards through the year is certainly a good idea although I've put my Christmas bits and pieces away - but ready to hand if inspiration strikes!
