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!

I hope you are having a lovely weekend.

More gardening, and then playing with snippets here today, amongst the normal Sunday chores!  Shame these specials lazy days fly by far to quickly.  I love poddling about doing little jobs that I never seem to get time for during the week.

So, here are my snippet makes for taking over to Pixie's Snippet Playground

No list of ingredients because I am lazy on a Sunday but as always if you need to know where anything came from just let me know.

Short and sweet from me today as kitchen duties are calling.

Enjoy another Bank Holiday tomorrow.  Hasn't it been lovely to have had so many in close succession!!!

Two absolutely lovely cards Jules, as always! Gosh I do love that long legged birdie and what looks like some fabulous paper piecing - took me a couple of peeks to find the heart :) And of course your Christmas card with such a happy snowman is brilliant!

Oh Jules, your bird card is just darling!! I am assuming that you paper pieced this cutie. Love the papers and love the images-just darling!! And that snowman, oh how cute he is!! Love these cards. Yes, I wish Sundays would last longer too. lol Those are our "lazier" days too and they fly by way to fast. Hugs

Two wonderful cards, Jules. The paper pieced birds are a delight! They have that lovely arty look!

The snowman card is adorable! Love the sentiment on that bit of silver scalloped cardstock!

SARN said...

I adore BOTH these cards. If you EVER want to sell that birdie set Jules - please let me know - it's hard to find (prob retired) - but I do love it!

I am SOOO impressed you're keeping up with your NYR about festive makes each week.

Hugs, Sarn xxx
