Hi,

Welcome to my blog. Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope that you will find some inspiration for your projects as I have from many lovely people. This is just a little space for me to share some of my cards, scrap book pages and maybe even some of my embroidery and quilting projects.

Enjoy and stop back often.

The Heart Of Christmas - Week 1



Hello and welcome to another beautiful day.

Did you know there are only 27 Wednesdays including today until the last week of November. I know shocking!

Well with that in mind some of the lovely ladies at the Art with Heart team are going to bring you a weekly Christmas inspiration to help you get your Christmas cards ready in time to send this year.

I don’t know about you but I absolutely love Christmas. In Australia, at least, it is summer time and I love the summer, mostly because I don’t like being cold. It is the end of the school year here and as a former school teacher that is always great. My birthday is 4 days after Christmas, my Husbands birthday is 5 days after Christmas and to top that all off we got married 3 days after Christmas! Yes, I know we were Crazy!! Our poor Parents! Plus, I just love celebrating Christmas and the birth of Jesus, it really is the best time of year I think!

Well at Art With Heart we have you covered with your Christmas cards inspiration this year.

Today I have for you a card made with the stamp set Father Christmas. Don’t you just love his vintage look. He is in the New Annual Catalogue and one of the stamp sets we are carrying over from the Holiday Catalogue. He is so gorgeous and very popular! I have used 2 of our new in-colours in this card, Fresh Fig and Tranquil Tide and tomorrow June 1 you will be able to get your hands on these great new colours and then new annual catalogue too!



 I have used our blender pens to add the ink of Fresh Fig to the robe of Father Christmas. It is such a royal colour and how good are Fresh Fig and Tranquil Tide together for Christmas colours? Do you like the way the copper metallic thread has softened the new in-colour Fresh Fig Finely Woven ribbon? I have wrapped it over the ribbon, it does make it sparkle! For more product information  check out the list below.

Hope you have a lovely day. Thank you for spending some time with me.
