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.

MID WEEK SNIPPETS

Hi Everyone

I hope you have had a good day.  The weather has been quite lovely here today .. . .and the birds have been mega cheeping!!  Do they thing spring is on the way sooner than it should be?!?!?

Well today I needed a card in a hurry today .. .. in fact I need about 100 in a hurry but have had to make do with just one LOL!!!

Sometimes when I am in a rush I do a "lucky dip" in my picture file and see what comes up .. .. well I ended up landing on a card that looks a bit like the one below.  You know .. .. the same but different!!

This is actually one of my favourite snippet makes from months ago .. .. so I decided to make it again and play along again with Pixie's Crafty Snippet Challenge No. 2 .. .. Miss Di will be pleased with me.  Twice into the playground this week!!  Woo hoo!!!  If I hurry up I will be entry number 22 .. .. two little ducks!!!!

It is quite a good card actually because you can use the style for so many occasions by simply changing the sentiment across the top.  I could happily sit and make a dozen of these .. .. .. if only I had time!!!

Anyway here it is:




This used:

Image:  Papermania "Hampstead Collection - Sketch Flower Clear Stamps"
Sentiment:  Great Impressions "E411"
Snippets from the drawer of leftovers
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Cord from the Stash Box

So that is me for today.  Short and sweet.

Have a good evening everyone and I will see you tomorrow.

Love
