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 have had a happy Tuesday!

I was hoping to be here a little earlier than last night .. .. but it is looking like there has been no improvement.  Still .. .. better late than never!

So I had better speed it up and show you my teeny, tiny 3.5" square make for this week.  All of my thank you cards seem to end up girly flowery things so I have attempted to make one that is more suitable for a male to receive:

This used:

Image:  Hero Arts Clear Stamp Set "Be Yourself"
Sentiments:  Wow! Clear Stamp Set "Gratitude"
Memento Ink Pads:  Bahama Blue and Pistachio
My Trusty Sewing Machine
X-Cut Palm Punch: Heart
Ribbon from my crafty stash box

This was my first proper play with the duster brushes that Santa kindly left under my Christmas tree.  I think I am going to enjoy using them!

Anyway, I won't hang about .. but before I go I would just like to thank everyone who left me such lovely comments on my post of yesterday.  You are all so very kind.

Hi Jules, Long time, no see! I just saw where Sarah was inspired by you, then saw a comment by you at Cotnob, so prompted me to come by and see this fab egg card. (delighted at how you got your heart in too!) Love the muted colors and you're right: it's a perfect guy card. Just cute as can be. TFS & Happy New Year

Well this is a really great image and I love it, a really super teeny tiny card.
I am really late tonight so maybe I will catch you as I scroll back up but maybe there will be no card tonight.
