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.

SUNDAY SNIPPETS

Hi Everyone

Happy Sunday!

I hope everyone is having a lovely weekend.

In a desperate attempt to us up some of my paper scraps I have been doing a little paper piecing .. .. a technique I really enjoy.

I took my supplies downstairs last night and sat stamping, cutting and piecing everything together whilst listening to "The Voice" and came up with this:




As always on a Sunday I don't list my ingredients but ask away if there is anything you wish to know.  

I am going to share this over in Pixie's Snippets Playground where the lovely Di encourages us to use up our scraps .. .. .. and not just paper ones!

So that is me for today but before I go I just wanted to give a little "shout - out" about a fantastic freebie that the lovely Sally-Ann of DigiStamp Boutique is giving away on her Facebook Page here.

These three fabulous stamp sets.


I personally don't do Facebook .. .. but apparently all you need to do is simply like, comment and share .. .. but you will see all the details on the Facebook post.

Best of luck if you join in. Closing date for comments is the 13th February at 11pm GMT.

Enjoy the rest of your day.  We actually have sunshine here .. .. and there is washing pegged on my line!!  But then there is a yellow warning of snow for Monday and Tuesday eeeekkk!!!  Let's hope they got that one wrong!

See you soon

It's just a fun look, and hooray for you at using up some snippets. Also love the way you tucked in the little heart! TFS & Have a good week.
