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

I hope you have had a good weekend .. .. mine has flown by.

We were determined to get more of the Christmas shopping out of the way and some of it took place in a local craft store where I spent ages talking with the lovely lady who was serving there.  So if you are the kind lady who helped me and you have come to my blog to see if there is a project on view along the lines of our discussion .. .. then I apologise for it not being here yet.  Hopefully I will get around to it soon .. .. and hopefully it will be worth looking at when it does appear.

But for now .. a quick card that uses snippets .. .. but I can't take it over to the Snippet Playground because the gates aren't open yet.  So I will have to use more snippets another day.  I should think that Miss Di is in shock at the moment because not only did she reach the elusive 60 entries last week .. .. but a huge 101!! Yay!!!  Well done Di.

As always on a Sunday I am lazy and don't list my ingredients .. but a nice lot of snippets got used up.

The spider is still "on the loose" and hasn't been seen again .. .. but it has been named "Pimpernel".  I still keep looking for it .. .. although the bride who was with me the night we saw it did email the following day to say that it could even have dropped to the floor and climbed into her handbag which she had put on the floor!!!  That would be a nasty surprise if it did!

Have a good week everyone.  

I'll catch you when I do.  Not sure when it will be .. .. lots to be done and lots of people to meet before this time next week!

Annmaree of Oz said...

Jules, I have to ask if you sent your Pimpernel over to greet me, because last night a giant wolf spider was in the hall watching me and scampered off without a trace by the time I found someone to catch it lol! I've been paranoid ever since! bahaha!!!
