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.

Hi Everyone

Happy Tuesday!!

I hope your week has got off to a good start.

Mr Heart returned to work yesterday and I am in work overload mode as I try to catch up with myself again following the outdoor antics of last week!!   So much I need, and want, to do and more work landing in the "in-box" and being added to the "do-list" daily.  Lovely customers have even started talking about Christmas already!! Perhaps because I didn't have enough stock for everyone last year .. .. eeekkk!!!

Anyway, it is Tuesday and time for another of my 3.5 x 3.5 inch creations .. .. thank goodness this was ready and waiting to be posted.

This used:

Sentiment:  Stampin' Up "Lots of Thanks"
Martha Stewart Punch:  Ribbon Threader Edge Punch
Spellbinders Nestabilities:  Heart Die and Classic Square
X-Cut Palm Punch:  Tiny Daisy
My Trusty Sewing Machine  
Ribbon and Pearls from My Crafty Stash Box

and of course I used the We R Memory Keepers Envelope Board for making my matching dinky little envelope.

So that is another little cutie finished .. .. they are so handy to have ready and waiting for when needed and they also use up lots of lovely little snippets.

Talking of snippets, I was asked which dies I had used on the first of my snippet makes on Sunday.

The curved border was a Spellbinders Borderabilities Die .. .. A2 Curved Borders One (there are six different curved dies in this set and I used two of them on my card) and the circular die was from Wild Rose Studio .. .. Flower Circle

OK .. .. time to get back to work.

Place name printing and cutting next on the list .. .. and then finishing off a batch of thank you cards!  There is no rest for the wicked you know!!!!

Enjoy the rest of your day.

Catch you when I do.

Love this sweet little card, great design.
Might have a go at some little cards myself. I bought a Memory Keeper Envelope Maker at the weekend. No excuse now for envelopes to fit small cards.
Happy Creating
