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

Here at last with my snippet makes for the day.

Lots of crafty makes today with my little pal Helen .. .. and she has just gone home now so I can share my snippets for the day.

My little offcut drawers have been used well over the last two days so they now open and close a lot more easily LOL!!!

So here are my snippet makes

Two lovely people played along using their snippets last week.
Carole who made a gorgeous card with her snippets, and this lovely creation just goes to show that you don't need much on your card to make something very stunning.  Carole also made a second card which you can find here.  It is brilliant and features felt flowers.  (I can see some felt making its way through my cuttlebug sometime soon LOL!!).


Tricia who is becoming nearly as addicted to using up her snippets as I am.  Tricia has made so many little creations that it is unbelievable.  Paying another little visit to her blog just now reminded me that I was meant to be doing a Christmas make amongst my snippets sometimes.  Must make amends there!!  I have only done one Christmas snippet make so far in 14 weeks!!!!  Disgusting!!  LOL!!
I hope you get chance to pop along and see their lovely inspiration.
So there we are for another week.

Sorry I am a bit late .. .. but better late than never.

Fabulous Jules. I love all of them but especially those little chicks!! So adorable. I love your paper pieced flowers; I am definitely going to sit down and try one this week.... or I should say try and not mess up one this week. :) Paper piecing is not as easy as it looks.

I should have several cards to share this week because I tried to play along with the Less is More challenge and wasted a ton of paper.

Thank you as always for your lovely comments, they are much appreciated.

All gorgeous, Jules, I love them all! Love the brown shades and the pearl center you have made for the flower, the little chicks are adorable and your layouts are perfect as always! Hugs Delphine xx

WOW . . . these are SUPER cards . . . I particularly like the first two.

Sorry Jules . . . once again I've failed to play with snippets on a Sunday . . . I was having too much fun in the garden with my chooks . . . and actually I made NOTHING today NOTHING! What is the world coming to?

Hugs, Sandra

Thanks for highlightening my cards forr last weeks play along, Jules. I have loved trying to get on top of my mountain, which I have a feeling is far more than yours - I don't think mine would go in two little draws. I love that first card and it reminds me that I have a digi stamp like that so i must use it one day. Haven't played along this week as I have been struggling with a bad back. almost better now so crafting will be on the menu this week again.
