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.

Today is certainly a huge improvement on yesterday weatherwise!

My day is one of those kind where everywhere you look you can see something that needs either cleaning, cooking, ironing, polishing or just plain putting away .. .. my least favourite kind of day!

One of the pleasant parts of the day so far though has been a quick play with my snippets.

So here are my two shares for today:

As always on a Sunday I am lazy and do not list my ingredients but please feel free to ask if there is anything you wish to know (just can't help with the winning lottery ticket numbers for this week I'm afraid).  LOL!!

OK time to link up to Pixie's Snippets Playground Challenge and then get back to what feels like never ending chores .. .. but at least I will be happy when I start tomorrow with everywhere tidier and more organised.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Two more wonderful card. The new home is many of our friends are downsizing and new home cards come in handy to have finshed and at the ready...
Wish it was me. I so want to downsize but DH is not quite ready. I look all the time and drag him round to the odd place just in case...he says if I fins the riught one he will consider it! So I keep

The Xmas card is so pretty. I love that branch die!
