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.

THANK YOU MISS DI xx

Hi Everyone

Happy Sunday!

A special day today because there is a great blog hop happening organised by the lovely Darnell as a thank you to our fantastic friend and playground boss .. .. Miss Di.

Some of you may remember I paid homage a couple of weeks ago when I explained how Di had made the brave decision to take over the Snippets Playground from me seven years ago .. .. and boy oh boy what a fantastic job she has made of it.

The most fabulous, generous and friendly person you will ever have the pleasure to meet and someone who deserves to know just how honoured we all feel to have her in our lives.  (I did write blogging lives .. . but that just didn't look right LOL!!)

Darnell has been arranging a blog hop, which went live today, for us all to post a creation by way of a thank you for Di's tireless efforts in keeping the playground mob under control.

I knew just the stamp set I was going to use .. ..  a very old one from Docrafts called "Wellington" .. .. and here is the finished creation:




I am running with my little creation to Pixie's Snippets Playground as everything is a snippet apart from the card base.  Even the pink bow was tied and sitting in my snippet ribbon drawer waiting to be used. 

I am also linking up to Darnell's post where all the cards that have been created by Di's friends and playmates are on show.  

Thank you Di for everything you have done with the challenge over the last 7 years it is a pleasure to know you .. .. ..  and also thank you Darnell for organising the thank you Di blog hop.  I hope everyone who knows Di gets chance to play along .. .. even if you haven't had chance to play along in the playground for a while.

No snippets from me last Sunday as Mr Heart and I were at a Wedding Fayre but more about that another day.  Today is all about Di!  xx
