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

Well the weather has taken a bit of a turn for the worse after the beautiful sunshine we were treated to at the weekend .. .. .. but I suppose it is a bit early in the year to be expecting too much isn't it. 

I am here today to share a quick teeny tiny card, which for anyone new calling by my blog, measures a whole 3.5 inches square.  I love making small cards and very sadly I love making the little tiny envelopes too .. .. .. both the cards, inserts and the envelopes being great for reducing those snippets too!  

Here is today's offering:

Image:  AALL & Create "Knibs & Mushrooms"
Sentiment:  LOTV "Embossed Labels"
Backing Papers:  Not sure .. .. from the snippet mountain
My Trusty Sewing Machine
We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board

There are two sets of stamps in the pack .. .. Knibs & then Mushrooms.  The mushrooms will make an appearance another day.

I stamped the knibs onto some thin silver paper using Black Stazon, cut them out and then added them to the image.

So that is me for today,

Take care everyone and I hope you managed to find a little crafty time to lose yourself in a some point today.

See you again soon.

Wow, what a lovely card ! I also have that stamp, but haven't used it yet. Still sunny weather here, but rain is coming, and the weekend will be very cold again. Guess it's gonna be hobby time... :)) Hugs, Enny

A great stamp used to make this super little card. Look forward to seeing the mushrooms. I've managed to resist the temptations of Aall and Create ... so far anyway!!

Claire said...

I do love an ink pen I do, so this ticks all the boxes for me. It has actually reminded me that the youngest Son bought me a Calligraphy set that I have yet to test run!! Hope you are doing okay xx

Gorgeous! I’m biased as I love writing with a proper pen which is what I started out with.

Love your teeny tiny card Jules, great for those males in our lives! A very unusual stamp and everything you have used coordinates so well.Brilliant fussy cutting of those nibs, they look really good. xx

Brenda said...

I so need to make more teeny tiny cards than I do. They are definitely great for using up some of the snippet mountain pile. I love this one, that image is so cool. I have a weakness for these types of pens. lol Very clever to stamp out the nibs on the silver paper, makes a huge difference! Making the little envies is addicting isn't it?! They are so cute to boot! Hugs, Brenda
