A very warm welcome to my teeny, tiny part of the huge world of blogging. This is where I 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 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

Beautiful sunshine here today after a very frosty start.

I hope it was a lovely and bright where you are.

The House of Hearts is looking very bare in a few of the corners and on a few worktops as another bride has been and collected today .. . .ahead of her wedding on Friday.

So another table plan has gone as well as favour boxes and table stationery and the house is actually looking a bit tidy .. .. for a change .. .. and probably only for two minutes LOL!!

So tonight's share is to make up for not taking part in Pixie's Crafty Snippet Challenge No. 12 yesterday.  I just didn't have time to call by the playground amongst everything else that was cracking off .. .. but never mind .. .. I made it there today with this little share made from more of those cream coloured snippets that I have a mountain of.  I am determined to get lots of them used up!!!

This used:

Image:  Magenta (a poor lonely stamp with no name .. .. just the number 09018G written on it in pencil!!)
Sentiment:  Anita's Stamps
Nestabilities:  Deckled Rectangles
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Button, pearl and cord from the stash box

I also have a huge confession.  Whilst in my wedding frenzy I just haven't had time to post an award  I was very kindly given by lots of blog buddies over the last two weeks .. .. I haven't forgotten .. .. but I do need to back track now to see who was kind enough to think of me.

I will get there eventually!!!  I promise!!

Have a great evening everyone.

I'll catch you again tomorrow.

Jules, this is terrific! Love 'the stamp with no name' and as always, you've done such a beautiful card here. I love the crisp elegance of it, beautifully composed too.

Pleased to see you in the snippets playground anytime of course - it wouldn't be the same without our founder and patron hopping in to remind the little monkeys to behave :)

Love, Di xx

Well, I think 09018G is such a lovely, pretty stamp. I hope she (definitely a female stamp) feels better now that she knows that, lol!
