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

I hope your Wednesday has gone well.

How hot is it?!?!!? and so very muggy!  But on the good side we are saving a fortune on our heating bills LOL!!

I am here sharing a card I starting making last night but didn't finish until this morning.  A teeny, tiny easel card .. .. .. a whole 3.5 inches square when folded flat.

This used:

Creative Expressions:  "UMS633" Shaded Peony
Creative Expressions:  "CED1432" Perfect Peony Complete Petals Die Set
Sentiment:  Clearly Besotted "CBSFA085" Fancy Sayings
Memory Box Dies "Kaleidoscope Butterfly and Moonlight Butterfly"
Distress Ink Pad:  Victorian Velvet
Spellbinder Circle and Scalloped Circle Dies
Metallic Seed Beads
Card and Papers from my Snippet Mountain
My Trusty Sewing Machine

I am having a real problem getting my blog posts to look anything like they should.  I have messed about with this one for at least an hour now!!  

Is anyone else having problems?

My photographs aren't going where they should and all the spacing is completely out.  I have having to press "shift and return" to stop it keep doing double line spacing!

I have tried clearing the formatting and starting again .. .. .. perhaps Mr Blogger is feeling a litter "over heated" too ????

Enjoy your evening everyone.

Beautiful card Jules, the colours are just exquisite. I have reverted to old blogger but thing still go haywire, especially the fonts....xx

Such a pretty card in lovely colours. I'm having problems with Blogger posts as well, wrong sized pictures. double spacing which I couldn't change - thanks for your tip about that one!! Nothing like as straightforward to write a post as it has been in the past. The 'new' version started out OK but seems to have deteriorated somewhat.

a little beauty, so classy and great design. I tried the new blogger design , found it was not better in anyway , could not do a save and pic in wrong line up , I went back to the old design . Jane x

Morning Jules ...your card is so pretty and SUCH pretty colours....think your right about the heat affecting Mr Blogger I’ve also had problems...
I ve really had enough of the heat now and despite doing a ‘rain dance’ last night still nothing! Hoping the craft room might be a bit cooler this morning although my ironing basket keeps looking at me!
Stay cool and enjoy your day

Brenda said...

OMGoodness, I never thought to make an easel card from a teeny tiny! You are genius Jules! This is a stunning teeny tiny! I love the color combo, the butterfly and those sweet flowers. It is all placed perfectly on your circle/scallop. You papers are so pretty, I especially love the music paper! Yes, the new blogger was a stinker to work with, it took me well over an hour to put a post up for the first time! So perhaps blogger is overheated too. lol Hope it cools down for you soon. Our temps are lower today but I don't know about the humidity. Hugs, Brenda

Kath said...

A lovely card Jules - I'm always amazed how much detail there is on your teeny tiny cards!

I'm getting my head around the new Blogger, but like you have struggled with the spacing if I'm making a list. I think I'm taking twice as long to post that I normally do, but hopefully that will speed up when I get used to the new Blogger.

Ahhh this is stunning, what a great card. I love that butterfly and his sparkly wings. Beautiful. As for Blogger Ive sent him to the corner to start behaving!!! By the sounds of things everyone is having these issues. I though tit was just me but a few folk commented on my blog saying they had the same probs as well. Hopefully it will right itself again soon, Take Care in the heat, Hazel x

A teen tiny's adorable!! I am still persevering with the new blogger and actually seem to be getting the hang of it with less bad language than before!! Martin keeps his head down when I start huffing and puffing!! xx

Enny said...

Oh, what a beautiful card, absolutely gorgeous ! Yes, the hot weather was a bit too much, I'm glad it's cooler today. And the new Blogger is difficult, a lot of my friends have also problems... :( Hugs, Enny

Absolutely gorgeous! I love everything about this.
I haven't had any issues with Blogger....but I only post once a week and switched back to Legacy so I'm probably not the best judge of the situation. (:
