A very warm welcome to my teeny, tiny part of the huge world of blogging. This is where I 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 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 your week is going well.

All mega busy this end with "happy couples" .. .. both new and ongoing .. .. hence no time for blogging/visiting and definitely no time to play with my snippets on Sunday :-(

So I made amendments early doors this morning and used my snippet and Sketch Number Eight for today's teeny, tiny 3.5 x 3.5" creation (you can find my little collection of sketches on the tab at the top of my blog - feel free to use them if you want to).

I love working on my tiny little cards, mainly because they use up all the tiny offcuts I can't bear to throw away.. ..  and I don't need much space on my desk to create them .. .. the 8" square of working room I usually end up with is plenty for my little card and tiny paper cutter  LOL!!!

So here we go:

This used:

Image:  Penny Black "30-013" Critter Party
Sentiment:  Pink Petticoat (can't find it in the boutique now .. sorry)
Backing Papers:  All snippets of Basic Grey "Vivienne"
Nestabilities:  Circle
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Buttons from My Crafty Stash Box
We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board

and this is Sketch Number  Eight that I worked with:

I am all prepared with my share for tomorrow (yay!!) which uses Sketch Number Nine .. .. and number 10 will be making an appearance in the library too.

So just off to link my creation up into Pixie's Snippets Playground where I see this week my lovely blog buddy Eve is Prefect for the week to give our lovely Di a much earned rest.  I hope you are having fun Eve and that Di is managing to put her feet up and catch her breath!

Catch you again tomorrow.

Hi there Jules!

Yes I certainly am having fun filling in for Miss Di BUT when I see all of the lovely creations from the playground there are now lots of things on my 'wish list'!!

Happy 'Teeny Tiny Tuesday' to you! Your card is absolutely adorable as always. That tiny mouse is far too cute!
Just to let you know that you could also enter PB Saturday and PB and More challenges as well!

Thank you for entering the playground and the lovely mention!
Apparently I should keep my eye on Sarn as there is something going on behind the bike shed!!! So if you see anything please let me know!

Hope you have a fab week.

Hi Jules, love your teeny tiny cards. Such a nice way to use up all your leftover snippets too. The image is so cute and I love the buttons. Glad to see you are so busy and the wedding orders are coming in thick and fast. Even without wedding orders I can still end up with just 8" square of clear space to work in :) Hugs, Elizabeth xx

Your teeny tiny is so cute Jules. I love the papers you have used and of course the sketch. Your sketches are fabulous and I can't wait to have time myself to sit down and make some cards using them. Maybe even some teeny tiny's! Can't wait to see you use sketch 9 and the debut of sketch 10. Hugs, Brenda
