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

A bit earlier today .. .. well a lot earlier in actual fact!! LOL!!!

Just a quick share this evening of a lovely little chappie I found in Dunelm. 

He is hard at work .. .. but I can't see him in my garden!!  No matter how hard I look down the garden he isn't breaking his back clearing any of my weeds and there certainly aren't any carrots growing!!  .. .. .. ..   Shame!!!

Today would have been a good day if I had got some planted as it has been sunshine then rain, then sunshine, then rain.  What a good old friend I used to work with called "growing weather".  He was such a lovely chappie who is sadly no longer with us. 

Anyway, on to my share of the evening .. ..

This used:

Image:  Trimcraft: "HCCL004" Happy Harvest
Sentiment:  Hobby Art "CS016D" General Greetings
Backing Paper:  Papermania "Hampstead"
Go Kreate Die:  "060014" Scalloped Squares
White Gel Pen
String from the "it might come in useful" box in the kitchen!!

Isn't he cute?  Clearly putting a lot of effort in .. .. just look at those rosy cheeks LOL!!!

Time for me to put some effort in in that there kitchen .. .. my turn in front of the cooker today and I am going with a cheese, tomato, onion, pepper and mushroom quiche.

OK pinny on!!!

I managed a bit of a blog catch up last night/this morning but am hoping to make even more of an in-road this evening.  I have a lot to catch up with after losing my internet and then having my lovely visitor over the weekend.

Have a good night.

I could really do with 'him' in my garden at the moment - as you say its good growing weather.
Glad to know you snippets are a fair few too but as we both know the snippets just get smaller the more you use them but they don't actually get any less. Mind you I have thrown a few bits away today as they really were too small to do anything with - even you couldn't have got a heart from them!!
Quiche sounds lovely.
