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

Happy Sunday evening.

A quick share of my snippet makes for today .. .. both are for Pixie's Crafty Snippet Challenge as they both involved those snippets that stay hanging about the place but the Christmas make is also making its way into Sandra's April Rudolph Day Challenge.

The poor Queen of the Playground .. Di .. .. hasn't been feeling too good so I am hoping she is feeling much better today.  Not that the weather is doing much to cheer anyone up at the moment!!

Anyway here are my makes

I am keeping with my lazy Sunday tradition and not listing any of my snippet ingredients.  But just shout up if you have any questions.

But having said that my day has been far from lazy and it hasn't finished yet so I will get back to it but before I go I will put a few people out of their misery and show you where a couple of hearts were that people have been struggling to find.

The first one is from Wednesday

and the second one from yesterday.

Should I be showing the hearts the following day or is that spoiling the fun?

Have a lovely evening everyone.
