My photo
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.

Hi Everyone

I hope you are having a good Sunday.

Just a quick post from me with my Sunday snippet make for running over to Di's Crafty Snippet Challenge with.  A great place to play. Always lots of mischief and a great gang of crafters all eager to use up those sheets of card and paper that we have "snipped into" previously and then cast to one side!!! 

As always I am lazy on a Sunday and don't list my ingredients but if there is anything you want to know about my make just ask away.

Lots of lovely jobs out of the way today, and a bit of a crafty clear-up .. .. but I now need to do the dreaded ironing!   That is one sure fire way to spoil a Sunday evening don't you think?

My bride from yesterday has emailed me a lovely photograph of her special day .. .. and as I guessed she wasn't the slightest bit bothered about the thunder storm and mega rain.  She said it made the disco in the conservatory more "atmospheric".  What a lovely positive attitude she has!

Enjoy what is left of your weekend and I will catch you when I do.  Not sure when that is likely to be.  I have a mega wedding work week ahead of me .. .. lots to keep me out of mischief!!

Darnell said...

Your sweet card has my stomach growling, Jules! It is real and delicious enough to eat!! Glad to hear you are still rolling in wedding work and happy brides and grooms despite the weather!!

MaryH said...

I'm with Darnell, your pretty pink card made me want something sweet! So pretty, and I always enjoy the hunt for the heart. Easy to find on this one, as it sparkled so brightly. Loved the layout, dies and dp...all made up a beautiful snippety card. (PS. I retired the iron when we retired! only comes out for weddings or funerals. I don't think about it any other time. If we can't go 'wrinkled' or natural, we don't show up! LOL)
