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 hope your Sunday has been good.

It has been a very mixed bag of weather here today.  Sunshine, showers and strong winds .. .. thank goodness we managed a good gardening session yesterday that's all I can say.

We are already looking forward to next weekend and the bank holiday .. .. how naughty to be wishing our lives away!!

Anyway .. .. what have I made with my snippets today .. .. ..

I would have been a bit earlier today but guess who left her camera switched on and had flat as pancake batteries?  Yep, that will be me!!!  So I have had to have a quick re-charge session before I could post.  What a clot!!  That's what happens when you post in rush like I did last night!!

So who kept me company this week in the fight to clear our craft spaces of our beloved snippets that we can't bear to throw away.

First this week was Carole who made the most delicious get well card for her friend .. .. and what a gorgeous ribbon bow too.  Love the colours on this one very much.

Next was Sandra who has faithfully been taking part for lots of weeks now.  I think that not only is Sandra enjoying using up her snippets as much as I do .. .. she also loves her Tattered Floral die as much as I do too.  Another fabby make.

Then Andria played along.  Andria has also been keeping me company quite a bit over the last few weeks .. .. her make this week was gorgeous except for one thing .. .. Andria teased me with one of the new Lili Of The Valley images!!  How many times have I looked at these?  I even put a few in my basket once and then emptied it and walked away (how strong was that of me?).  Clearly my addiction isn't out of control just yet or I wouldn't have been able to do that!!  LOL!!!

But joking aside Andria I loved your card!

Next came a new snippet companion Lynne.  It is the first time Lynne has played along and what a gorgeous card she made too.  Beautiful papers, gorgeous image and a fantastic rosette .. .. this creation must have used up lots of snippets!!!

Then last but by no means least Tricia came to play along too.  Tricia did really well and made not one, not two but THREE snippet creations.  Well done Tricia .. .. you must be so pleased with all your lovely makes.  I know I would be.

So the last world record has been broken .. .. woo hoo!!!  The highest number of playmates yet .. .. 5.

Thank you so much ladies for keeping me company and inspiring everyone with your creations.  I hope that everyone comes to pay you a visit and see what beautiful projects you have worked on.

I will catch you again tomorrow and hopefully will get chance for a blog hop session later.

Have a good evening.


If you fancy keeping me company during the course of the next week then please link below and we can all come and see what you have been up to.

Love the new home card - really should make one of those for my YS and DIL2B as they have just moved to a quirky old shop. Never seem to get New Home ideas though.
Thanks for admiring my cards. I love joining in with you as it does focus the mind on using those snippets.
