A very warm welcome to my teeny, tiny part of the huge world of blogging. This is where I am hoping to 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 always 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 bet you thought I wasn't going to play today.

Well I have .. .. but I have only had chance for one very rushed snippet make today.  Sorry!!!

Time has ran away with me whilst on the clearing up mission.

But one snippet make is better than none .. .. .. and here is what I made

This used:

The compulsory snippets
Sentiment:  My Sentiments Exactly "M379" Love Sentiment
Martha Stewart Punch:  Daisy
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Buttons, flower, brad and ribbon from the stash box

and sadly that is it!!  No more to share today  :-(  

I couldn't justify playing with bits of paper with so much housework needing to be done.

The biggest challenge would have been to make a creation with all the tiny little snippets I have cleaned up off the dining room floor and table today LOL!!!

Three lovely blog buddies share their inspiration last week on the "use up your snippets" mission.  I hope you had chance to see all their lovely creations.  They were linked to Mr Linky at the end of last week's post here so if you need a little inspiration nip to see them.  Once again some brilliant ways to use up all of those leftover snippets.  Thank you ladies.

I have popped Mr Linky on again just in case anyone wants to play along this week .. .. but no pressure .. .. you probably haven't got as many snippets as me to use up .. .. and I made loads whilst making my wedding stationery samples .. .. .. eeekkk!!!

A big improvement on the clean house front but work needs to continue tomorrow.  What a bad housekeeper I have been!!  No domestic goddess award for me this year................ not that I have had one any other year either.

See you again tomorrow

I love this idea of a snippet Sunday and played along myself this week, I was surprised by just how many snippets I had lol.

for some strange reason my snippets never seem to be as co-ordinated as yours. But thats maybe cos my cards tend to be a bit uncoordinated too. Lovely card and colours. This was going to be my colour choice for one of my card craft class samples this week using some Cardwork cards stuff.
Have a good day

Hi Jules, Just started what seems to be my once weekly catch up.I'm so glad the Wedding Fayre day was a success and I hope you get lots of orders come through from it. Your samples in the earlier posts are fantastic. So elegant. Love the way you've use two ribbons twisted through each other for a simple embellishment - I'll have to try and remember that one. You Sunday snippets card is fab. Love the layout and the beautiful papers you've used. Will you be going to the NEC this time? I'll be there on Saturday.

Gorgeous card Jules, love the colours and layout. I've actually managed to join in this week! My cards aren't anywhere near as good as your snippet makes, but hopefully I'll improve with a bit of practice :o) Lisa x
