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

I hope you are all doing OK?

It has been another busy one here with not enough done .. .. .. even though I was up nice and early!

Just popping in quickly with another teeny, tiny card (for anyone new to my blog they measure 3.5 inches square).  This one is a little different to my normal ones as I turned it into a Z-Fold card .. .. just for a change.

I love making this size of card as it is great for using up those small pieces of card and paper that we all collect.

This used:

Image:  Penny Black Clear Stamp Set "30-116" Social Butterfly
Sentiment:  Mama Elephant "Bountiful Blessings"
Backing Papers from my snippet mountain
My Trusty Sewing Machine

I am entering my card into the following challenges:

Pixie's Snippets Playground - where we are encouraged to use up our snippets  (all my card and paper here is from my snippet mountain.

Butterfly Challenge #143 - where the optional card fold alongside adding a butterfly is a z-fold card.  There are other elements you can add into the challenge too if you want to.

So that is me for today .. .. creeping into Wednesday morning with my Tuesday creation!!
