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

Happy Tuesday!

Hope you have a little bit of this lovely sunshine today.

A quick nip in and out with my Teeny, Tiny Tuesday make for this week .. .. and for anyone new to my blog this measures a whole 3.5 inches square. 

I am getting requests for Teeny, Tiny Christmas cards now so had better get my thinking cap on to see what tiny designs I can come up with there.

So here we go with my tiny one for this week:

This used:

Image/Sentiment:  Hobby Art Clear Stamp Set:  CS059D Winter Wishes
Backing Papers:  Nitwit Collections Fireside Christmas
Silver Embossing Powder
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Berry Embellishment, Ribbon, Cord and Charm from my crafty stash box
We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board

and that is it!

I made an "oversized" envelope so that the lovely red berry embellishment would fit comfortably inside but I am still not sure it feels right.  Wedding invitations and special birthday cards often get ordered with decorated boxes .. .. but at the moment I am thinking a Christmas card in a box might be a step too far.  Perhaps have to have a play with that another day and decide then .. .. no time for faffing this week (or should I say this month LOL!!)

Enjoy your day everyone.

Love Jules xx

A super teeny, tiny Christmas card Jules - even I can find the heart today!

Amazing what you manage to fit onto such a small card. If this is too bulky to post it could always be one you hand personally to someone (would save making a box) - as you say a step too far at a very busy time of year.
