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 your week has got off to a good start.

We have lovely intermittent sunshine today, which is a welcome change to the dull showery day we had yesterday.

This is a Christmas card I worked on yesterday, busy putting inserts in now 

This used:

Image:  NoLimitsSpiritWear "Swirly String of Christmas Lights"
Sentiment:  Computer Generated
Pearlised Chalks
X-Cut Corner Rounding Punch
My Trusty Sewing Machine

Quite pleased with how this card turned out, so I made a nice little pile of them.

I also made a teeny tiny card that I was supposed to have posted last night but time just ran away with me as always .. .. .. so I have scheduled that for next week.  I should do more of that really. 

Thank you so much for your lovely comments and emails on my last post.  They are very much appreciated.

Enjoy the rest of today.

This card takes me right back to 1972...we had lights just like that on the tree and I remember Dad unscrewing each one to find the offending "blown" one. A fab card and perfect for batch making xx
