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 Wednesday!

Sadly I never made it as far as my blog last night .. .. I just couldn't find my googly eyes to finish my project .. .. then this morning I put my hand straight on them!!!  Typical!!

To make sense of that you will need to look at what I was intending to post .. .. a teeny tiny 3.5" card with a matching envelope and gift tag .. ..

These used:

Image:  Digistamp Boutique "Love Birdie Set"
Sentiment for the card:  Computer Generated using font Rapunzel
Sentiment for the gift tag: Digistamp Boutique Clear Polymer Stamp "Big Hugs"
Backing Paper:  Craft Sensations "Chalkboard Love"
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Googly Eyes !!!
Glossy Accents
We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board
We R Memory Keepers Corner Rounder Punch

What a long list of ingredients for three tiny creations LOL!!!

As everything here used snippets of card and ribbon I am going to skip over to Pixie's Snippets Playground to share them there.  If you get chance to join in, it is a great challenge for using up all of those lovely leftovers we all squirrel away .. .. "just in case" we ever need them LOL!!

Enjoy your day everyone .. .. throwing it down with rain here with a mini river running down the road!!

So annoying when items just go missing for no apparent reason but thankfully they usually turn up when you're not searching. This is such a brilliant birdie image and the googly eyes just finish if off nicely. Chucking it with rain here earlier on then the sun came out but accompanied by a very chilly breeze. I do hope the one warm(ish) day in April wasn't our summer for this year!
