My photo
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!!!

Sorry I didn't make an appearance yesterday .. .. I am blaming the dentist!  She was running rather late last night which put the scuppers on me getting round to pictures and blog posts .. .. but never mind, it leaves a card to share another day.

Today's share is one of my teeny, tiny makes .. .. but it is a little bigger than normal .. .. measuring in at a whopping 4 x 4 inches LOL!!

This used:

Backing Papers:  Kaisercraft "Key to my Heart"
Sentiment Die:  Paper Smooches "Birthday Words"
Sentiment Stamp and Punch:  Stampin Up! "Banner Banter" and Banner Punch
Distress Ink:  Worn Lipstick
X-Cut Punch:  Flower and Heart
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
We R Memory Keepers:  Envelope Board (for the matching envelope)
Mr Trusty Sewing Machine

and there we go.  Another little one for the box.

Many thanks for your lovely comments about my sketch creation on Sunday.  You are all very kind.

I managed to add a tab to the top of my blog yesterday ready for collecting my sketches together .. .. after much faffing around.  I always alter things on my blog with my heart thumping a little.  I am always convinced I am going to wipe everything, and when it comes to publishing the changes I always hold my breath as I click the mouse button .. .. .. as if that is going to make any difference LOL.

I have added another sketch to the collection today but haven't used it myself yet.  I just felt one sketch looked a bit sad sitting there on its own.

Catch you tomorrow with the card I should have posted yesterday.

Have a good day today.

Oh Jules this is very beautiful!!
I love the stitched bunting - sadly my stitching would be very wonky!!
The colours are very pretty and what a coincidence that the papers are called key to my HEART!! anyone would think that was planned!!
I also love the cream coloured sentiment - very classy!
Hopefully the dentist didn't hurt you too much and your pocket!
Thank you for the new sketch and I hope you have a fab day.

Jules, I love this little card a lovely simple design. Loving your 'sketch' creations, might give my mojo a kick up the proverbial!! No you are not the only one who holds their breath when making changes to their blog ~ I do it too, convinced that everything will be obliterated at the push of that button ~ lol.

What beautiful paper Jules and your bunting is perfect. Another great sketch too xx

Brenda said...

What a beautiful card Jules! I love, love that paper. Your banner is so sweet with the flowers on it and a perfect place for a smaller sentiment. Another fabulous one to add to the box! Now off to check out your sketch. I know what you mean about holding your breath when changing things, that's why I don't change anything and things still disappear from my blog! lol I'm glad all went well when you add the sketch button. Hugs, Brenda
