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

I hope you are having a lovely Easter and that everyone has remembered to alter their clocks!!!

I am certainly missing my stolen hour already.  I got up with all good intentions of getting lots done and  am failing miserably so far.  But hey ho .. .. it is a Bank Holiday weekend .. .. and I am determined to make it as relaxed and enjoyable as possible amongst everything that "has" to be done.

My intention was to have two snippet makes done today .. .. one for Pixie's Crafty Snippet Challenge and the second being for taking over to Sandra's Rudolph Day Challenge.  But once again I have failed. No Christmas make from me again this month :-(  I'll be sorry come October time when my customers are shouting out for Christmas cards!!!  But if anyone else still has time there is just a short time left to enter. 

Anyway, here is my "non-Christmas" snippet make.




As always I am super lazy on a Sunday and don't list my ingredients but if you have any questions then feel free to ask.

I managed to find the spare bulb for my sewing machine too so the stitching on this make is a little more impressive than on my last make.  I wonder if the new bulb will last as long as the original .. .. I somehow doubt it.

Thank you for all the anniversary and birthday wishes on my last post.  We have had a lovely week with all our celebrations.

Catch you again soon.

Have a good rest of today

Love
