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

Hopefully Wednesday has gone well for you and the sun shone nice and brightly.

My day started with that lovely clear desk  .. .. and me climbing on said desk to remove and clean the Venetian blind and the windows inside and out.  The Spring cleaning is continuing and becoming a little bit addictive .. .. which isn't a bad thing.

I also finished the teeny, tiny card I started yesterday.  They are such fun to make.  I even enjoy making the tiny envelopes that go alongside them.

For anyone new to my blog my teeny tiny cards measure a whole 3.5 inches square and this is the latest:

This used:

Background Stamp:  Hero Arts Cling Stamp "Thank You Definition"
Sentiment:  Personal Impressions Clear Stamp Set PICSA6104 "Double Sayings"
Sizzix Die "658232" Leaves and Vine
Flower:  MFT Dienamics Die:  Blueprints 14
X-Cut Embossing Folder:  Polka Hearts
Peeled Paint Embossing Powder
White and Clear Embossing Powder
My Trusty Sewing Machine

I am pleased to report that my desk is all nice and clear again this evening ready for me to start again tomorrow .. .. .. oh I do hope I am going to be able to keep this tidiness going .. .. and perhaps let the habit spread through the whole house!!!  LOL!!!

Definitely lots of other crafty corners that need the same sorting out that's for sure .. .. .. and not just in my little craft pod!!!

Stay safe everyone.  It sounds like we are going to confined to barracks for a little while longer yet.

Such a beautiful little card Jules, I love all of the colours against the kraft card. If you run out of spring cleaning I have some that needs doing :)

Take care

I love your tiny cards Jules... your colours are lovely and bright...I know I should be Spring cleaning especially my craft room but do you ever go to your craft space to do something and then get side tracked and end up doing completely different...I’m sure you’ll keep your crafty space tidy tidy as it takes so long to put everything back it it’s right place when it’s heaped on our desks....happy cleaning
