A very warm welcome to my teeny, tiny part of the huge world of blogging. This is where I 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 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.

SATURDAY SNIPPETS

Hi Everyone

Happy Saturday .. .. .. I hope you are managing to find something to keep you amused .. .. .. especially if your day has been as dull and miserable as it is here.

Can you believe we are nearly into February?  I get the feeling this is going to be yet another year that is going to fly by in the blink on an eye!

Lots on my "do list" today, but for now I thought I would post a card that I started last night and finished first thing this morning.  It utilises lots of snippets (everything on this card was a snippet other than the actual base card.   This means I can take it over to Pixie's Snippets Playground Challenge.




This used:

Image:  AALL & Create "Eclectic Stems" (well one of the flowers from the set)
Sentiment:  Polkadoodles "PD7995" Super Sentiments
X-Cut:  Mini Die "Buttons"
Fineliner Pens
My Trusty Sewing Machine


Off to the playground now to wave my creation in the air .. .. .. sadly it is the first time I have visited this year .. .. .. will have to make amends on that front if I am going to reduce the size of my snippet mountain(s)!!  LOL!!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Miserable day here on the weather front. I do like these quirky flowers and the fun card you've made. No complicated search to find a few hearts! Great card to take to the Playground and a few more snippets used.

Dear Jules, thank you so much for your message on my blog ! Your card is gorgeous, and again a lovely way to use snippets ! We also had sad weather, rain and snow, but I'm glad that January is already gone. It can only get better from now on. Hugs, Enny

Lovely card Jules, you do well at using your scraps up. Dusting of snow on ground here but the sun is beating through the conservatory window so just closing my eyes and dreaming of better days x Susan x

We had a beautiful, some what warmish Saturday here. It was the calm before the storm deal. Nice and sunny, no wind and temps in the 30's. But today it is snow, up to 12 inches, and in the 20's. Snow from Sunday to Tuesday. What a fun and pretty birthday card Jules! I love the papers and colors you used. You always have the best papers/snippets! I struggle with putting patterns together, but you don't! Love this one! Hugs, Brenda

Sarah said...

Very pretty Jules and one could be fooled into thinking those flowers are fabric. I agree that this year is going to be another quick one...you'd better get on with testing those 101 different muffin flavours!! xx
