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 am here today with my snippet makes for taking over to Pixie's Snippets Playground   

My creations have made just a very, very small little dent in my collection of snippets .. .. but they have made a lovely dent in my preparations for Christmas.

These two cards are for giving to Mr Heart's Uncle and his "pretend" Auntie, who was one of his late Mum's very good friends. Does anyone have "pretend aunties" anymore?

Normally by the time I get round to making cards for these lovely folk they are done in a fit of panic the day before we visit .. .. so how nice to have done them at a more leisurely pace.  I told Mr Heart that if he rescues their presents from wherever they are hidden then I would get them wrapped and that would mean we are actually "ready" for visiting two very special people (who I know won't be visiting my blog).

So here we go

and as always on a Sunday I am lazy and don't list my ingredients but just ask away if there is anything you would like to know.

We got the Christmas decorations and tree out of the attic today .. .. hopefully the tree will be up and decorated over the next few days.  The bad thing being we have highlighted another space where the tree could "perhaps" go this year .. .. but this involves moving furniture .. .. eeekk!!!  Talk about making work for yourself LOL!!

Enjoy what is left of the weekend and I will catch you again soon.
