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

SUNDAY SNIPPETS

Hi Everyone

I hope your weekend has been good.

Mine has flown by .. .. and today .. .. well where has it gone?  and I still have lots to do!!

The Sunday roast is nearly ready, I have a hubby that wants a haircut, a pile of shirts that want ironing, a few wedding samples I want to finish and hopefully a bit of a sit down with "The Voice".

But at least I have managed my snippet make for Pixie's Crafty Snippet Challenge .. .. and this week it has been mainly the brown drawer that took a beating.




As always my Sunday is lazy where my ingredients are concerned .. .. but as always just shout out if there is anything you want to know.

So I think I had better go and get cracking with that list of "things still to do".  Hubby took me to get a load of wedding ribbons I need earlier today .. .. and it seems to have taken a huge (but enjoyable) chunk out of my day.

I also bought a gorgeous bag of teeny tiny heart buttons and the man adding up my bill looked at them and said "gosh, there small aren't they?".  I gave a cheeky smirk and was about to tell him about me hiding hearts on my cards when I decided "he doesn't want to know that" .. .. so I spared him and I just said "yes".  Tee hee!!!

Have a lovely evening everyone.

Catch you again soon

Love

Hi Jules, Oh this is a fab male card! The papers work so well together but i'm guessing they probably aren't from the same pack as it's a snippet card :-)

Elizabeth said...

Hi Jules, this is a brilliant male themed card - I particularly like the backing paper which just looks the kind of fabric used for a man's shirt. Spotted the heart but you are getting very good with your placements :) Liked the story of the wee heart buttons and best to leave the man guessing, methinks :) Elizabeth x

PS: my weekend went by in an enjoyable hurry too.

Jenny said...

ooo now I love that backing paper...I reckon it is material it's that realistic!!
I spotted the heart too on this one...I wonder what he'd have thought if you had told him why you bought the hearts???
Jenny :0)
