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 you are all doing well this week and steering clear of these nasty germs that seem to be flying around at the moment.

You know you are having a fast week though when you think it is Tuesday .. .. but really it is Wednesday!!

As Mr Heart left for work this morning I wished him a good Tuesday .. .. to which he replied "that might be difficult considering it is Wednesday"!!  What a shock that was! Of course I am blaming him.  He had a day's annual leave on Monday so we could sort some bank stuff out .. .. and that has thrown the whole week off kilter!

He did say that if it helped I could pretend it was Tuesday until lunchtime - but then come the afternoon it is definitely Wednesday! LOL!!

So here is my teeny tiny 3.5" card for this week (a little bit late) but funnily enough it does fit into my White Card Wednesday theme too because I used up a whole tiny square of white card from my offcut box!!  Woo hoo!!  

So here we go:

This used:

Images:  Card-io Collections Mini Tall Trees and Festive Scene
Sentiment:  Hobby Art "CS059D" Winter Wishes
Distress Inks:  Squeezed Lemonade. Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade, Tumbled Glass and Stormy Sky
Crystal Glamour Dust
We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board

If I now make another few thousand of these cards I might see a tiny dent in the ever increasing stock of white offcuts!  At least the lid still goes on that box so that is a good thing!!  Unlike the box that holds the pale cream offucts!!  LOL!!

In fact lots of offcuts here .. .. including that very tiny length of yellow ribbon and the square of paper I used to make the envelope .. .. so I am taking it over to Pixie's Snippets Playground to show it off there!

Enjoy the rest of today.

I'm always the same about days when we have an official Bank Holiday let alone an impromptu one!! You've certainly managed to get lots of lovely detail into such a small space and with the little piece of ribbon this is ideal for the Snippets challenge. Love those cardio stamp sets.

You wait till Mister Heart retires Jules and neither of you will ever know what day it Is!!

I love your teeny tiny card. It really is so very pretty. And I noticed the little snippet of ribbon before I read about it. It really does work so well. Fantastic design work. My box of black offcuts sounds like your cream. Barbxx

A gorgeous card Jules, such a lovely winter scene.
I'm the opposite to you, my husband usually works from home on a Monday - this week he didn't so I'm a day ahead, I'm not sure which is worse!
