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 Tuesday has been kind to you.

Here with another of my teeny, tiny 3.5" creations.  My customers love these and I just can't make them quickly enough. 

To begin with I thought they were popular just because they were so cute and because I sell them for less than my normal 5.75" ones .. .. but it turns out that isn't the reason.  My customers like the teeny, tiny ones because as they are so small they get stood at the front of any other cards the recipient might receive and don't get lost in the line up.  I never even thought of that.  Perhaps teeny, tiny Christmas cards need to get added to the mix?!?!?

Anyway, here is today's teeny, tiny creation:

This used:

Image:  Indigo Blu - "IND0159" Dinkie Peony
Sentiment:  Stampin' Up -  Lots of Thanks
Marianne Designs: Decorative Heart Die Set
Onyx Black Versafine Ink Pad
ClearEmbossing Powder
Distress Ink:  Dried Marigold, Spiced Marmalade, Wild Honey and Barn Door
Paint brush and water for adding those white drips in the background
My Trusty Sewing Machine

and have you spotted how good I have been?  The insert is already in there .. .. my New Years Resolution has succeeded more often than it has failed this year so I am part way there!

That is me for today. A new sketch for the library tomorrow so I will hopefully see you with that at some stage.

Enjoy the rest of your evening.
