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 sunny Sunday (or at least I hope it is sunny where you are).  Definitely is here!!

Here today with my snippet make for taking over to Pixie's Snippets Playground where we are encouraged to use up some of those bits of paper/ribbon that we just can't part with, ideally not cutting into any new fresh sheets at all!.

That is definitely true of the piece of ribbon on my card today.  It has been floating around in my craft pod for that long, that I was sick of seeing it.  No matter how many times I put it into my little bag of ribbon offcuts it re-appears on my desk .. .. clearly just super keen to be used!!  LOL!!

So here we go:

and as always I am lazy on a Sunday and do not list my ingredients - but if there is anything you wish to know then you only have to ask.

This card also uses a new sketch which I added to my little library today.  Please feel free to use it, or any of the others in my collection if you want to.  They can all be found on the tab at the top of my blog.

OK then .. .. time to go and link up and then see how long it takes for my post to make an appearance on my dashboard .. .. .. the way things are going it could even be tomorrow!!   For some reason it has been taking hours and hours recently!!  I don't know about you but I don't even have many recent posts from other blogs on my dashboard either.  I am going to try leaving my signature off this time to see if that helps.  (Nah!!!  It made no difference at all!! LOL!!)  

Enjoy the rest of your day.  I am off on kitchen duties next :-(

Love this Jules and too funny about the piece of ribbon that kept popping up begging to be used! Those buttonholes are genius! Fabulous sketch and a great card too.

Sorry I'm a bit late hopping round to comment, the sunshine yesterday was just too tempting!
