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

Happy Father's Day to all those hard working Dad's out there (and the lazy ones too .. .. laziness is allowed today as it is Sunday "and" your special day LOL!!)

My day has flown by yet again but I made time to play along with Di's Crafty Snippet Challenge No. 25 .. .. gosh .. Di has been the keeper of the keys for nearly half a year!!!  Where did that time go?!?!  

The playground is super busy nowadays and so much fun thanks to Di and her hard work and wicked sense of humour.  If you get chance to play along sometime it is a great way to use up those leftover snippets from other creations (you know the offcuts we push to one side as we excitedly cut into a fresh piece of card or design paper).

Here is my offering for this week:




As you know I make the most of Sundays and am super lazy .. .. so no recipe list .. .. but if you want to know anything just shout and I will try my best to help.

I am setting myself a theme for this coming week as there is a need  for wedding cards and anniversary cards .. .. so that is what I will be showing on my blog for the next 5 postings.

Have a lovely rest of Sunday everyone.  It is now time for me to get in that kitchen and get cracking with the evening meal.

Love

Beryl said...

A super card. Love all that stitching. Do you stitch the bp to card or do you stitch just the bp and then stick it to the card? I've tried the second method and it never seems to sit right.
Hope you enjoyed your Sunday dinner. Seem to have stemmed the leak for now but it's going to take a long time for it all to dry out - especially without any sunshine.
