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

I hope everyone has shared the lovely weather that we were blessed with here today!

Definitely a bit nippy but nice and dry with a beautiful sky .. .. and even a little glimpse of sunshine!  

Teeny, tiny card time again (and for anyone new to my creations my teeny, tiny cards measure a whole 3.5 x 3.5 inches).

This used:

Sentiment:  Pink Petticoat "Christmas Scriptalicious Sentiments"
Backing Papers:  Kaisercraft "Yuletide"
X-Cut Punch:  Christmas Tree (an old one but sometimes still available)
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Glitter Paper
Ribbon from my Crafty Stash Box
We R Memory Keepers Envelope Board for the matching envelope

and that is it.

Now round to the lovely comments and emails following my Sunday Snippets post and cards shared in the post below:

The first card was actually made by using Gold Shine Sparkle Medium and a stencil (Imagination Crafts Bauble Branch) on a base of navy blue card .. .. .. leaving it to dry and then cutting it out by hand.  The sentiment was part of the same set I used today from Pink Petticoat.  I hope that helps.

I had to laugh at everyone guessing what they might receive from Santa if they received £5 gifts that started with the initial of their first name.  

For mine I have so far guessed at Jelly Tots, Jammie Dodgers, Jif Lemon Juice, Jelly Beans, Jaffa Cakes, Jam, Jelly, Jewellery or a Jig-Saw.  It is a bit scary to think it won't be that long until I know!!!  Eeeekk!!!

Lots of birthday cards needed at this end .. .. as well as lots of Christmas cards and wedding work to tackle.  Thank goodness it is only Tuesday!

Have a lovely evening everyone.
