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.

SUNDAY SNIPPETS

Hi Everyone

Happy Sunday to everyone.  It looks like it is going to be a lovely day .. .. the sun is making a very welcome appearance and melting the frost away.

I am up and about bright and early .. .. .. which is quite a surprise considering the time we went to bed last night!!!  Or should I say "this morning"  Our evening with friends just flew by :-(

But for some reason I woke up far too early for my own good and just couldn't switch my brain off .. .. so instead of lying in bed thinking about all the things I want to do (and need to do) I decided I might as well get up and do some of them LOL!!

So here is my snippet share for the day.  I am quite chuffed with how this one turned out.  The sentiment is actually part of a Mother's Day collection from Pink Petticoat but I think it would work for a birthday card too.




As always I am super lazy on a Sunday and don't list my ingredients but if you need to know about anything then just shout and I will try my best to help.

I have been trying to catch up with a few blogs this morning but keep getting error messages and trouble with blogs loading .. .. hopefully this is just a little hiccup and everything will settle down soon . . .. but just in case Mr Blogger is due to fall out with me I thought I had better skip over to the playground to share my creation in Pixie's Crafty Snippet Challenge sooner rather than later.   It is a great place to play if you fancy joining in and everyone is always made to feel so welcome by the lovely Di and all the other playmates!!

I am hoping for a big wedding stationery production day.  Yesterday was spent getting household jobs done (and all the dreaded ironing out of the way) so now I can settle myself at the dining room table and get stuck in.  Yay!!!

Have a lovely day everyone.

Love
