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

Well what a beautiful day of sunshine compared to the rubbish bank holiday weekend .. .. .. I hope it has been the same where you are.

Nipping in today with another "teeny tiny" card .. .. a whole 3.5 inches square for anyone new to my blog and it uses an old Stampin' Up set I bought "pre-loved".  The idea of the set is you build up your own scene using all the different elements .. .. .. giving you scope to create trees that represent any season.

As the cherry tree in the garden over the road from me is now in full bloom .. .. that is what I have gone for today.

This used:

Image:  Stampin' Up "Sheltering Tree"
Sentiment:  DigiStamp Boutique Clear Stamp (sadly no longer trading)
Memento Dew Drop Ink Pads:  Pistachio, Bamboo Leaves, Rich Cocoa, Angel Pink, Rose Bud & Lady Bug
My Trusty Sewing Machine
and that is it !!

Who would have though such a small piece of card would need such a big list of ingredients LOL!!

I have my eyes on a new challenge for tomorrow (well new to me) so hopefully I will get chance to play along with that.

Super use of that stamp set - reminds me to dust mine off and play which in a way is partly what blogs are about I think. Look forward to seeing what your next challenge is.
