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 your Easter Sunday was enjoyable .. .. .. and you didn't eat so much chocolate that you started to feel poorly!!  LOL!!

Thank you for your lovely comments on my rather long post of yesterday.  It was lovely to hear that I am not the only one who works on a tiny square of desk surrounded by stacks of crafty goodies.

Today I attacked a box that holds lots of small design paper snippets and created this:

This used:|

A variety of snippets
Mama Elephant Clear Stamp Set "Make A Wish"
X-Cut Nesting Hexagon Die Set
Circle and Scalloped Circle Dies
Memento Dew Drop Ink Pads:  Lavender and Angel Pink
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Black Fineliner Pen

and that is me for today.

I am heading off to share in Pixie's Snippets Playground Challenge where we are encouraged to use up our leftovers.  My whole card .. .. apart from the base are remains from what were once A4 sheets.

The pastel hexagon papers look great as a background for your sentiment

Great use of those snippets of patterned paper, in awe of your neat felt tip pen dashes around the hexagons.

I really like the fresh look you've got here Jules! (And using up some odds and sods too - bet it hasn't even made a dent!)
I cleared the desk a couple of days ago and put lots away - as usual now I can't find anything.......
