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 Tuesday.  

I hope you are blessed with the lovely sunshine that we are enjoying here today (sadly it does mean the washing line is going to be filled to capacity again though .. .. which means lots of ironing).  Boo hoo!!

Here with a teeny, tiny Tuesday make .. .. but one that is a little different to my normal teeny makes:

This used:

An empty rectangular hinged tin
Lots and lots of snippets
Quilling Paper
Silver Gilding Wax
Silver Embossing Powder
Glamour Dust 
Distress Ink 
and of course My Trusty Sewing Machine!!

I was going to take this over to Pixie's Snippets Playground as all the card and paper used for decorating came from my snippet mountain .. .. .. but I then I remembered I have already entered this time so my make is simply for sharing with all my lovely blog visitors.

Enjoy the rest of your day .. .. .. and keep slapping the sun cream on!

I can see you really enjoyed decorating this delightful little tin with all its interesting additions. I spot something different each time I look at it and it would have been an ideal Snippets project. Now I'm wondering how to get my hands on a little tin ... 😉

Kathleen said...

This is really a brilliant make, gorgeous dies and super colours. Not too happy about the cat sat under the bird box though as we had blue tits nesting in our and a cat was sat under the box trying to jump up to it till Hubby chased it away.

This is stunning Jules and a great way of using the smaller peices of paper that get left over at the end of a project.
