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 Thursday has been a good one.

I certainly can't say I am a fan of the nights getting darker so early.  I don't like crafting by electric light.

More Christmas from me today:

This used:

Image:  LOTV Digital Image "Christmouse Pudding"
Sentiment:  Computer Generated
Backing Paper:  Make & Create "Merry and Bright"
Corner Rounding Punch
My Trusty Sewing Machine

and that is another Christmas card added to the box.

Many thanks for all the comments and emails regarding my Mum.  You are all so very kind.

It is certainly good to see her more like her old self again .. .. .. just in time to be treated to a flu jab on Saturday!! 

Catch you again soon

Hi Jules,

Love your fun, cute card.
I hope to start making my Christmas cards next week. I do have some left from last year.

Must be great for you to see your Mum back to normal. Hope she stays like that for a few more years.

Got another Craft Fair on Sunday, so busy making more Christmas elements as the all sold at the last one and my Needle Felting sold well too.

Love and hugs,
Carol xxxx

Brilliantly cute card Jules.
Hope all is well in the House of Hearts - after moving out of our house once we had sold we were supposed to be in this rented place for 6 weeks max....12 weeks later we're still here and probably another 4 (at least) to go. This house buying has become a nightmare of biblical proportions so I apologize for my long absences from visiting your lovely blog. xx

A fun Christmas card Jules, a super image and great sentiment.
I'm not keen on the dark evenings either, I don't like walking the dogs in the dark.

A super cute card. I am with you, I don’t like it getting dark early. The evenings seem so long and when the time changes,nthey will seem even longer.

JanR said...

Such a sweet card! Loving the sentiment too. I agree, not liking how early it gets dark these should be illegal to be dark before 7:00pm. (;
