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 SNIPPET

Hi Everyone

I hope you have all had a lovely day .... .... and particularly all of you Mums out there.  

I know quite a few blog owners for whom today will have been very difficult for various reasons.  I did think of you all and hoped you were coping OK .. .. and I also stopped and counted my blessings.

Of course the other big event of the day is the loss of that hour .. .. and boy have I missed it!!  I feel I have been chasing my tail all day.

Only recently finished my snippet makes even though I started them first thing this morning.  I took a look at my overflowing little snippet drawers and decided that it was the cream and brown that needed to be attacked this week .. .. but I have to admit my makes didn't make much of a dent in them!

But here they are anyway:





Back to my usual lazy Sunday mode and no listing of ingredients but if you need to know anything I will try my best to help.

Off now to link up to Pixie's Snippet Playground Challenge.

Thank you for all the anniversary wishes yesterday .. .. Mr Heart and I had a lovely day (and yes, we were both very young when we got married.  I was just 19 and Mr Heart was 20 ... .. .. .. so now you know how ancient I am LOL!!!).

Catch you again soon and enjoy what is left of the evening.

Love

Two wonderful cards. I have that Xmas die and just love it. The silver under the reverse sord olls great and the little snowflakes tie it all together.
Pretty first card. Great idea to look in the drawer and pick what you seem to have the most of! lom In this case it was a good decision as this is a lovely card.

I love the creams and browns with the pop of pink. Fabulous job! and what is it about creams and browns that multiply so quickly. Every time I turn around that stash is multiplying but I don't really notice using that much cream and brown in my work.

Love the Merry Christmas card as well. That ribbon really makes it. Those stars are so shiny bright!

Sorry I haven't been round to visit much recently Jules, last month was difficult and now I just seem to be chasing my tail in an effort to catch up. However, I did have to pop in and comment on your super snippet cards - they are both beautiful and I love the colour combinations. Hope you are well and busy. Hugs, Elizabeth xx
