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.


Sunday, 12 January 2014


Hi Everyone

Happy Sunday .. .. I hope your weekend has been a good one and you managed to find a bit of crafty time for yourself.

Today has lasted a little longer than yesterday and I am pleased with my progress .. .. but there is still lots to do and I could do with another two days in every week (two that are just for me and no-one else is aware of!!  LOL!!).

So as promised here are my Sunday snippets for taking over to show my playmates over in Pixies Crafty Snippet Challenge  .. .. ..

 as always on a Sunday I am lazy and do not list my ingredients but if you want to know where anything has come from just ask away.

I love colouring that gorgeous snowman stamp .. .. and I am really sad because I also love sticking the little peel off dots on.  Those too are snippets because they are the waste left over from some peel-off stickers that are yonks old.

So that is me for today.

I hope you have a good week (and if you find out how to add more days to it then please let me know).

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Great cards! The birdie one is so intense with its colors. The snowmen are so sweet! It would drive me bonkers to stick all those little silver dots... and probably most of them wouldn't be on the card!

I tried to comment earlier but unsucessfully!
This is a favourite stamp of mine (birdies) & reminds me that it's been a while since I used it!

Two gorgeous cards, beautifully stamped and a wonderful use of snippets too! Love the colours you have used in the first one in particular and the snowmen are so very cute too! xx

Jocelyn aka JoBear2 said...

Both beautiful cards - I love them. Love those snowmen - they are adorable.

I was wondering if the snowmen are a stamp or a digi image?

MaryH said...

Pretty in purples & beautiful in beiges (or should that be tan?) Anyway, I always enjoy your cards, they're always gorgeous with great images & layouts. Loved both the birds & snowmen. I had to hunt to find the heart on the snowman and finally, Duh...there it is in the DP! Such fun. TFS & Hugs
