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.

Mine has been quite productive so far, and today started with a major clear up as I needed a completely clear desk for my next mission.  

So whilst clearing I of course came across a few little snippet of card that I couldn't possibly throw away .. .. .. and rather than add them to the huge snippet mountain I decided I would turn them into a teeny, tiny 3.5" square card for taking over to Di's Crafty Snippets Playground.  It also gave me chance to have a quick play with that cute little sheep die I bought from the NEC last week.

So here we go:

This used:

Marianne Collectables Die "COL1385" Sheep
MFT Die-namics Die Set:  Blueprints 12
X-Cut Flower Punch
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Weathered Wood Distress Ink Pad
Computer Generated Sentiment using font"Zipty Do"
My Trusty Sewing Machine
We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board 
and a tiny scrap of ribbon for the bow

and that is it!

First outing for my little sheep die.  

Off to mess up that tidy desk now!!  I bet it will take all of 20 minutes to look as messy as it did before I had the tidy up LOL!!!

Catch you again soon.

Such a sweet card Jules and loving your new sheep die - just in time for Easter! Really think I need a massive tidy in my craft room too. I'm sure I'd make more cards if I didn't spend so much time looking through stash! xx

Hello Jules - this is the sweetest little card. You are certainly going to be busy with all your new purchases. I made one card tonight, and ended up working in about a 12 inch square bit of space - how does that happen?! I can't seem to work in a huge space, it just doesn't feel right. Have fun! Lynn x

Really cute image and a gorgeous teeny tiny card.
This is the second pink and grey card I have seen tonight and they both have made me decide that these are the colours I shall touch up my craft room with. The walls are already a deep pink colour and we have a full tin left (which idiot bought 2 tins when it only needed one) so I am going to do the paint work in grey, my blind is black with white outline flowers, sound ok to you!
