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 your day has been a good one. 

Here today to share a "teeny, tiny card" which for anyone new to my blog measures a whole 3.5 inches square.  

These are great for attaching to gifts, sending as an "actual greeting card" .. .. .. and those without a sentiment sometimes look great mounted into a picture frame.  A set of them look great in a larger frame, be it just two, three or four .. .. even more if the frame is big enough. LOL!!

Just a little singleton from me today though along with a handmade envelope:

This used:

Image:  Woodware "JGS489" Cosmos Flowers
Sentiment:  Julie Hickey "SKU:JH1043" Sweet Daisy Stamp Set
Distress Ink Pads:  Speckled Egg and Bundled Sage
Gold Glamour Dust
The envelope was made from a square of Pink Petticoat paper that was leftover from another project.  I quite like a pattern inside the little envelopes .. .. it makes them appear extra cute.

and that is me for today.

Supper time now but I will catch you again soon.

Pretty flowers, they look like Cosmos which are lovely. The vibrancy really makes the card have the wow factor with a sweetly designed sentiment that's very cute with a heart exclamation x

A very pretty "teeny-tiny" and the matching envelope is a lovely idea. I've still got Pink Petticoat papers - they did the sweetest little prints xx
