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 Bank Holiday weekend has been a good one.  

Today was a day to try and "cull my snippets".  They seem to be taking over my craft space at a rather fast rate of knots even though I try hard to use them before opening my design pads or printing off new papers.

To save time I decided not to re-invent the wheel but to simply use one of my new sketches .. .. and this is what I came up with:

This used:

Image:  Woodware Clear Magic Singles "JGS512" Bold Blooms - Erica 
Backing Papers:  A mish mash from my snippet mountain
My Trusty Sewing Machine

and Sketch Forty Three

I am taking my creation over to Pixie's Snippets Playground where we are encouraged to use up our "leftovers" and everything apart from the base card has come from my snippet collection.

All of my sketches are on the sketch tab at the top of my blog.  If anyone would like to use one of them then please feel free to do so.  

Catch you again soon.
