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 have enjoyed your weekend.

Mine has been a busy crafty one but I had time to pull in a quick card using just a few of my never ending snippets.

This used:

Sizzix Die Set "Wildflower Stems 2"
Sentiment:  Lili of the Valley
A mixture of Embossing Powders
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Sparkly Dome Stickers

This card is a bit of a strange size .. .. a bit like a short fat scrapling card.  But as I have lots of white card to use up any size is good.

The flowers are green card that was heat embossed with a variety of embossing powders, some plain, some clear, some metallic and some sparkly.  I love just sprinkling them on and seeing what the results are.

A new challenge has just started over at Pixie's Snippets Playground where we are encouraged to use up our leftovers .. .. ..  so I am skipping over there with my creation as everything was part of my snippet collection other than the sentiment and the dome stickers.

Enjoy your new week when it starts.  I wonder what changes, if any, this one will hold.

Catch you soon
