My photo
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!

We had some quite decent weather here this morning and decided we should spend an hour in the garden before the day took hold .. .. and that hour turned into the whole morning!!!!  Anyone would think I have nothing else to do LOL!!

But I am well chuffed with what we managed to get done.

The greenhouse now smells beautifully of eau de Jeyes Fluid and six tomato plants are standing proudly in their pots ready for supplying us with tommies during the summer months.  They have been growing on my kitchen window-ledge for a few weeks and were well ready for their big pots!  Hopefully they will be OK out there in the greenhouse .. .. I wonder if they are having a little cough, splutter and shiver!!

The brown bin is nice and full ready for collecting tomorrow and now it is raining so thankfully no need to feel guilty for not carrying on!!!

I seem to have my knickers in a twist with regards the snippet playground this week .. .. but here is my card anyway .. .. using up more of that cream card, pink and brown.  The fullest drawers in my snippet collection.

As always on a Sunday I am super lazy and don't list my ingredients but if there are any questions just give me a shout.

OK ..  ..  off now for a massive guillotine session in readiness for all the printing I need to crack on with tomorrow.  There is a busy week ahead with lots of work needed on two weddings.

Lots of good things recorded on the hard drive but of course we can't have any of those on in the background  .. ... hubby has the football on!!!

Catch you again soon.

Hi Jules - another gorgeous creation, love the design - it's just a perfect card! The colours are stunning together and every little detail is so beautifully done!

The snippets Playground ran for an extra day this week due to some of us AWOL, it will re-open at midnight and we'll be back to normal next week.

I'll link this card in for you 'cos you still seem really busy. I'll be round for cheeses and tomato sandwiches around July time :)

Hugs, Di xx

Lovely card Jules, pretty pink and fab layout.
I spent most of the afternoon in my green house getting it ready for tomatoes, peppers, aubergines and cucumber - I think I will wait a little longer before planting it out though - not as brave as you!
Have fun with the guillotine.
