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 having a lovely weekend and are managing to find something to amuse yourself.

Certainly lots going on here which has resulted in me practically turning the whole house up-side-down! LOL!!!  

I must admit I was expecting to wake up to snow this morning (but thankfully we didn't) which is probably why I made this card last night.:

This used:

Die Set:  The Paper Boutique "Winter Wishes"
Backing Papers from snippet mountain
My Trusty Sewing Machine

I took photographs last night and again this morning but with using mirror card to mount the sentiment onto I was really struggling to get a decent shot without lots of reflections .. .. .. so today I am making do with just the one "fairly decent" shot.

This is for taking over to Fezziwigs Festive Frolics Challenge where we have a choice of ingredients this fortnight to pick from .. .. and need to use at least three of them. 

This is the list to pick from:

Ribbon (tick)
Shaped Card
Gems (tick)
Digi Stamp
Red (just a teeny tiny tick LOL!)
Gold (tick)
Snowflakes (tick)

Quite a good list to pick from really .. .. .. .. I wonder if anyone is going to manage all ten?

Anyway .. .. that is me for today.  Enjoy your Sunday whatever you are up to and stay safe.

Hi Jules,

Another cracker.....card!! I love blue and white Christmas cards and make loads every year.

We are completely surrounded by a few inches of snow and no sign of it going yet. They have said there will be more tomorrow!! We had a blizzard all day from when I got up at 8am and was still going when it got dark.

Well it is winter and we haven't had any snow here for 3 years.

Love to see snow on a card or in a photo - not so keen in having it on the ground locally. Very cold today but should stay dry if the forecast is to be believed even though the temperature isn't scheduled to go above 1 degree

A super Christmas card Jules, lovely dies and stripes always look elegant.
Just a very light dusting of snow here, I wish we would have a decent amount, I want to see what the dogs make of it - they haven't seen real snow yet!
