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 week is going well.

Tuesday here is always teeny tiny Tuesday .. .. the day my cards shrink to measure a whole 3.5 inches square .. .. .. and here is my offering for this week

This used:

Background Image:  Crafty Individuals "CI-490" Blossoms Repeating Background
Die-Namics Die Set:  Blueprints 14
Sentiment:  Clear Stamp Set "DigiStamp Boutique" sadly no longer trading
Distress Ink Pads
Onyx Black Versafine Ink Pad
Clear Embossing Powder
My Trusty Sewing Machine

The background was created by stamping the image with the Black Versafine Ink and heat embossing it with clear embossing powder so that a mixture of distress inks could be blended across it and polished off.

.. .. .. and that is me for today.

Catch you again soon.

You are so good at these tiny cards, lots of detail on this one and the background effect is great. Definitely a craft room day today as it is chucking it down (rain) thankfully not snow.

Oh my, I am so loving this teeny tiny Jules! That background is gorgeous, loving the embossing and then the coloring. Makes for a fun and vibrant card. Love the bigger die cut flower too, the little scallop in the middle is so cute. Is that part of the flower or where you a clever gal and just used a scallop in the middle?! Love it! Love this card! Hugs, Brenda
