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!!

Today I was determined to get a teeny, tiny 3.5" card made before the "crafty do list" of the day started to get a bashing.

My life is about to go super manic busy on the commission/wedding front but I am in that strange place today where I am waiting for deliveries to arrive and brides to provide information .. .. so I am trying to get on top of general makes and card orders whilst I have the chance.  

So here we go:

This used:

Cuttlebug Embossing Folder:  Roses
Nestabilities Die Set:  Hearts
X-Cut Punch:  Flower (very old and probably not on sale any more)
My Trust Sewing Machine
Ribbon and Gem from my crafty stash box
We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board

and because I gave myself an almighty fright last night by checking my work calendar for the year and then comparing it to the "how many sleep to Christmas" app on my IPad, I thought I had better make a Christmas card for the stock box too . .. .. a teeny, tiny one!! LOL!!

This used:

Image:  Penny Black "3986J" Crystal Wreath
Wow!Embossing Glitter:    Pink Sherbert
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Glitter Card
Ribbon, Pearls, Gems and Button from my crafty stash box
We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board

and because both of these creations have used odds and ends from my never reducing snippet supply I am also skipping over to the Pixie's Snippets Playground to wave them about there.

So that is me for today folks .... ... you never know I might even manage to get a few projects behind me for sharing here over the next few days!!  Woo hoo!!!

Have a good evening everyone.

Two fabulous, fabulous cards Jules!! I can't pick a fave - although the Christmas one would also fit perfectly into the Merry Monday Challenge this week. One of the optional themes is pink and silver :)
