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 you have all had a good day.  No bright sunshine made an appearance here today but at least the day was dry.

So I finished playing with my die set today .. .. and as I guessed it would the teeny tiny card idea went out of the window as there were far too many lovely die-cuts I wanted to use.  

This is what I created instead

This used:

Sizzix Thinlits Die Set:  "663087" Funky Foliage
Sentiment:  Sorry not sure - one that was sitting in my sentiment box waiting to be used
Clear Wink of Stella Pen
Butterfly Ribbon
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder "Script"
Tag Die (unbranded from Amazon)
Distress Ink "Tea Dye"
My Trusty Sewing Machine

So many lovely and useful elements created from just one die set:

I am taking my creation over to the Little Red Wagon Challenge when the theme this week is Nature, Flora or Fauna.

Is it just me or does that little toadstool on the right look like a little person?

Fabulous use of those super die cuts and now you mention it the toadstool could well be a little person in a funky hat. You don't have to be mad to be here but I find it helps!!! You've put temptation my way yet again, we seem to have similar tastes in crafty 'stuff'. More sunshine again for today.

Fab card Jules...and yes I see a person in a hat pulled well down over their face!...i think we must have both been on the wine!! I expect this one was fun to do but time consuming...worth every minute, it's really pretty and a lovely sentiment too! xx

Sarah said...
