My photo
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!  I hope it has been a good day for you all.

Mine has been a really productive one so I am super happy!

Apologies for the absence .. .. again!!  It is "all go" on the wedding front.  New couples are still signing up so it looks like my final year of wedding work is going to be a busy one.

But I was desperate for a little play this evening using a template that the lovely Mr Heart created for me over the weekend.  It is my take on a card I received from the lovely Maureen quite a while ago now, and it measures nearly 12cm square .. .. which means it is probably smaller than the photograph you are looking at here!  LOL!

This used:

Image:  Kaisercraft "Butterfly Kisses" (quite old now)
Sentiment:  Computer Generated using font "Aracne Condensed Regular"
Backing Papers:  All the papers and card are snippets from my ever growing mountain of leftovers .. .. not that a little card like this uses very many!
X-Cut Flower Punch (also very, very old)
Circle Die
Wood Effect Embossing Folder
Rich Cocoa Memento Ink Pad

and that is me for today .. .. .. off to Pixie's Snippets Playground now to share my use of snippets.

Catch you again soon, more than likely with the Valentine card I am making for Mr Heart!

What a sweet card and clever of Mr Heart to make the template for you. Good job you said how small it is - would never have guessed and it is just right for using up some of your smaller snippets.

Missed this last night, sneaked in after I had finished my commenting and was probably watching some Peter Kaye and Vivtoria Wood, on u-tube his misheard Lyrics and her Step Arobics never fail to make me laugh.

Anyway this is a really gorgeous creation, love the bird house and th really super bird on a branch image and I can spot the heart!

Oh Jules, this little itty bitty card is adorable!I love the little bird house. The little bird on the branch going across is just the cutest! How you made it so tiny is beyond me. It looks huge in the photo though. lol So cute, so sweet and perfect! Are you retiring from the wedding scene? You said about your final year, so I must have missed something from a past post. Trying to catch up, not sure if I will or not, but trying! lol Hugs, Brenda

Sarn said...

Lovely snippets make. Your hubby is clever to produce the template for it.

FINAL YEAR of wedding work eh? I bet you will be busy too as your work is much in demand.

Good luck with it all Jules.

I saw this birdhouse spotlighted over on the playground and had to come take a closer look! What a fantastic creation, complete with a darling little heart-shaped button hanging over the "door!" Cute cute cute!
