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 have had a good day.

My usual Sunday snippets were ready nice and early this morning but I have only just found time to post them.  I have been on order of service and place name duties today for a lovely couple who get married at the end of the month.  Lots more to do for them yet so I might be a bit of an "extra part time" blogger for a while.  Sorry!!

So here are my makes for taking over to Pixie's Snippet Playground Challenge:

As always on a Sunday I am lazy and don't list my ingredients as my papers are often too varied .. .. but just shout if there is anything you need to know and I will do my best to help.

Many thanks for your lovely comments and emails on my new profile picture.  I decided it was time for a change .. .. especially as Mr Heart and I have managed to drop some weight  with the 5 - 2 diet we started last year (which has now just become a way of life) ..  .. .. and my old picture wasn't really me anymore. LOL!!

Catch you when I do.
