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 SNIPPETS

Hi Everyone

I hope you have had a good weekend.

Ours has been a lovely one .. .. the sort you don't want to end .. .. and only just enough time to make a couple of snippet makes and share them .. .. so here we go:





and in lazy Sunday mode I do not list my ingredients.

I was asked last week where the backing paper came from that I used for my last card .. ..  .. .. it was a scrap from American Crafts that was left over from a magazine commission I did last year.  Loved the papers and I am just left with small bits now :-(

Skipping of now to link up my makes in Pixie's Snippet Playground Challenge and I will be back tomorrow with the name of the winner of the huge bag of sequins (I used a few more of mine today).

Catch you soon.

Love

Gorgeous cards Jules. I love both designs. The embossing and delicate colours on your first card look so beautiful. The snowman is fabulous, the sequin added to the holly look so effective.

Love your cards Jules, the embossed circles look particularly great with that lovely flower...what a good idea. "I saw three ships" sprang to mind when I saw the snowman!!? Have a good week, it'll soon be the weekend again!! xx

Hi Jules, your birthday card looks so classic - gorgeous with the inking at the edges. I always love the way repeated circles or squares etc look in a grid but I can never seem to pull it off. This looks fab! As for Christmas cards, despite you inspiring me all year, I have yet to make my first! Although I did just buy a snowman die at the GBCF in Bolton so this card might just have given me the impetus to get going! Lovely xxx
