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.

Hi Everyone

Happy Sunday everyone.

I hope you have had a good weekend.

A couple of snippet makes from me today for taking over to Pixie's Snippet Playground.   

The purple snippet drawer was struggling to close this week so that is the one I delved into first:

As always on a Sunday I am lazy and do not list my ingredients.  They are usually too varied and random in terms of the papers I use.

I love this ribbon Christmas tree very much and normally would paper-piece all of it .. .. but time was short today so it had to be coloured instead.

Happy couples who get married in July and August are keeping me super busy at the moment with their Order of Services Booklets, Table Plans, Favours/Placenames and Thank You cards .. .. but I have thankfully managed to stock pile a few general makes to share with you whilst I am busy. 

Enjoy your Sunday evening and I'll catch you again soon.

Two fabulous cards Jules! I got the ribbon tree stamp after seeing you use it ages ago - it's one that always delights! I think maybe you did paper piece the pot? Sigh - you always make such perfect cards, even when you say you're in a rush!

Sorry I'm a bit late commenting, playing catch up here!

Hugs, Di xx
