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 all had a lovely weekend.

We have had beautiful sunshine today .. .. so different to everything the rest of the week held!  Let's hope it is a taste of things to come.

So Sunday in the House of Hearts is snippet day and here are my creations for taking over to Pixie's Snippet Playground this week.


As always on a Sunday I am lazy and don't list my ingredients.  But as always just ask if there is anything you want to know.

I was asked a couple of things last week:

1.  How did I cover my snowflake with tartan on my Christmas snippet make last week?  Well actually I was well spoilt and the snowflake was already covered .. .. it just happened to match the paper I used.  They have sat in my little stash box for ages unused .. .. but last week they came into their own.  LOL!!!

2.  What font did I use on Mr Heart's Valentine card?  It is called "CarbonType"

I am also going to enter my first card into a new challenge that has been started by the lovely Mrs A .. .. one of the playmates from the Snippet Playground!!  It is called Mrs A's Butterfly Challenge .. .. follow the link if you want to find out any more.

Have a lovely evening and a great week and I will catch you when I do.
