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 have had a good day.

My teeny tiny card has today morphed a little into a scrapling card (measuring 6.5 x 13.5cms).  These cards are made with the offcuts I am left with after creating my own card bases .. .. .. and I have rather a stack of them .. .. .. so they need to be used.

This used:

Make & Create Die Set: Post Box and all the elements from The Works
Backing Paper:  Pink Petticoat
Sentiment:  LOTV Christmas Tags
ProMarkers for colouring the birds
Ribbon and Cord
My Trusty Sewing Machine

I think that post boxes are going to become our extra special best friend over the next couple of months because I doubt very much that we will be delivering our Christmas wishes in person this year!!  Boo hoo!

Super seasonal scrapling card - loving the post box die. For the past few years I've joked with my fam8ily about cancelling Christmas but it is starting to look a bit ominous I must say. Take care and keep on crafting whatever.

Your sweet scrapling card is lovely Jules and love your little post box.. it’s nice when you can use up all those bits we cut off or have left over but as crafters we waste’s a very wet morning here in Somerset so think after the housework chores it’s going to be a crafting day.

This is so cute the little robins and the pearls for berries and your ribbon is hugging your card! What a fabulous find in the Works! xx

Oh Jules, I am really loving this teeny tiny! I love the size of it too. It's so cute with the little mailbox on it, love your guy's postboxes! They are so much cuter than ours. lol Great background paper of snow and I love the ribbon you used. Our numbers are really going up in my state now too, as well as my county. Not super bad but up is up and not down! So don't think we will be visiting with family either, but will see as time gets closer. Hugs, Brenda
