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 Sunday!

Bright and early for me .. .. .. I got up for a quick play in the craft pod before the day took hold and decided to give some of the offcuts of white card a bashing today .. .. and as usual I got carried away .. .. so a double dose of snippets today.

Both are for entering into Pixie's Crafty Snippet Challenge and the Christmas card is also for Sandra's July Rudolph Day Challenge.

It has been a good while since I have posted more than one snippet make on a Sunday .. .. and so early too .. .. woo hoo!!  I thought I might be early enough to be first into the snippet playground . .. but no .. .. three playmates have beaten me to it.  But being number four means that the numbers have been evened up for playing on the see-saws!!  LOL!!

Anyway, enough waffle and round to photo overload .. .. .. 







A goodly amount of white offcuts used here .. .. .. now if I just make another 400 like these I might be able to shut the "not so little" white card drawer LOL!!

Hubby has just volunteered to take me to my ribbon shop for stocking up on wedding ribbons .. .. that wasn't on my schedule for today .. .. but I know I will only regret it if I don't take him up on the offer.

Mmmmm... .. what can I do that is crafty whilst on the car journey ?!?!?!?   Not much I fear :-(

Have a brilliant Sunday everyone and hopefully I will get chance this evening to spend some time having a good old blog hop as I am mega overdue on that front !!!

Love

Elizabeth said...

Hi Jules, two great cards. It's amazing what you can make from a base start of white card. I spotted the heart on the first easily enough but I've had my nose right up to the screen and I'll be blowed if I can see a heart (except for the actual word 'hearts') on the second :(

That was an offer to good to refuse from your hubby ... more ribbon to add to the drawer :)

Hugs, Elizabeth xx
