My photo
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

Here at last!!

I have been packing lots into today .. .. and then we had lovely surprise visitors this afternoon .. .. which has meant my snippets didn't get an airing until early evening.

This week my Sunday Snippets are meeting up with Sketch Saturday and this what I have come up with:

Sunday is my lazy day so I don't list what I have used .. .. but if anyone has any questions then ask away.

So my little creation is being entered into the two following challenges:

Pixie's Crafty Workshop Snippet Challenge 40

Sketch Saturday

and the sketch this week looks like this:

I hope everyone has had a lovely weekend. 

We have really enjoyed ours .. .. and thankfully the weather was lovely for the "happy couple" that got married on Saturday.  I was so pleased for them.  They should have some lovely photographs as their wedding venue has lovely gardens and backs onto the river.

Lots on my list again for this week .. .. but hopefully I will have time for a few shares too!

Have a great week whatever you have planned.
