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 weekend!

I'm afraid that Saturday was a non-starter on my blog this weekend.  Sorry :-(

Who knows perhaps one day I will be so organised I can have scheduled posts!!  Now that would be novel wouldn't it?  LOL!!

My lack of an appearance was all due to me allowing Mr Heart to drag me from my desk "kicking and screaming" into the outside world .. .. and I simply ran out of time to make anything to share!! The only creation I managed was an order for taking with us to our friends house in the evening.  

So, out in the day and then a meal with friends in the evening .. .. too much gadding about for my own good yesterday!   

But I have had chance for a little play with some of my snippets today, using what is probably my favourite technique for using up some of those small patterned leftovers.  I love mixing all the different papers from different collections.

So here we go .. .. all ready for taking over to Pixie's Snippets Playground.

So my Sunday rule of being lazy and not listing my ingredients comes into play today .. .. but if there is anything you wish to know then please just ask away and I will do my best to answer.  Not sure I know where "all" of those backing papers have come from though!!

Have a lovely rest of the weekend everyone and I will catch you tomorrow with my Male on Monday make.

p.s.  my dashboard display is still playing up.  I am beginning to think it is a permanent fixture :-(

What a great way of using up lots of little snippets - I never remember to apply my machine to joining paper and card although I do mean to have a go - good intentions and all that!!

What a lovely way to use up those snippets! I'm always so envious of your stitching - I can't seem to sew in a straight line! Hugs, Tracey x

A wonderful Snippet card, Jules! Well done to Mr H for making you have a social life! Hope you had a great time. Thanks for your birthday wishes. I decided that I will stop celebrating after Stamp magic when I will spend my birthday money, lol!

Brilliant snippets usage Jules.
I'm glad your hubby took you out into the sunshine over the weekend. All work and no play makes Jules a dull girl! (Not that you've ever been dull in your life of course!)

Hugs, Sarn xxx

I love this way of using up snippets Jules - and almost fainted here when I realised you might well have done zigzag stitch down each strip. Tell me it isn't so! Stunning card.

Thank you for coming to play in the Snippets Playground.
