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 today has been a good day for you .. .. and if not that tomorrow is much, much better for you!

As usual mine has flown by far too quickly!  Where does the time go?  Days at school used to last a lifetime .. .. but not now!!

Anyway, time for one of my tiny 3.5 x 3.5 inch makes.  I think I get on far better the smaller the card is you know.  I just find them soooo cute and easy to work with!

So here we go:

This used:

Lots of scraps of card, paper, ribbons and a bit of Mr Heart's old jeans (nicely washed and ironed before use)  .. .. .. .. yes it is true .. .. .. there is hardly anything I throw away LOL!!
Sizzix Die:  654995 Stars #2
Part of a Pink Petticoat Sentiment
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Studs that are yonks old from My Crafty Stash Box
We R Memory Keepers Envelope Board

and there we are.

I'll catch you again soon.  Enjoy the rest of the evening.

Hi Jules,
Wow! this is super cute!!

You must have teeny tiny fingers to work on something so small and that stitching - perfect.

What a brilliant idea to use old jeans - very frugal!! LOL!

Do you never run out of card ideas!!

Big hugs. xx

OMGosh, this card is right up my alley because I love red, white and blue cards. Of course it doesn't help that I'm from the US and our colors are red, white and blue. lol I love how you have used Mr. Heart's blue jeans-that is so cool looking for the star. Love the polka dot paper and those star brads and red heart paper or material. Your teen tiny's are so cute and perfect Jules. Hugs, Brenda
