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 you have had your day filled with the lovely sunshine that we enjoyed today!

I think we are going to have just one more day of it .. .. .. then rain .. .. .. so I am hoping to fill the washing line and then sit colouring under the sun umbrella in the garden. Perhaps for the last time this year .. .. .. .. boo hoo!  I am not ready for Autumn yet!

Tonight I am sharing a Teeny, Tiny Christmas Card, which for anyone new to my blog measures a whole 3.5 inches square.

This used:

Sentiment:  Penny Black Clear Stamp Set "30-259" Wonderful & Jolly
Backing Paper:  Papermania "A Silent Night!
Dovecraft Holly Punch
X-Cut Corner Rounding Punch
Red Pearls
White Gel Pen
My Trusty Sewing Machine

I do believe this is the very last piece of that gorgeous holly paper that I own.  I loved it so much that I bought a couple of packs of the mixed papers many, many years ago.  This strip was actually cut off the packaging!

Before I go I would like to thank you all very much for the lovely comments and wishes for Mum on her birthday yesterday.  She will have had an equally enjoyable time today, especially as she will have seen her great Granddaughter .. .. .. who at just over three years of age amuses us all greatly!

Catch you again soon.

Hi Jules what a great little Christmas card the white stitching on the leaves really pops. Hope you are well and keeping busy. I am trying to puppy proof my house for weekend when my little Teddy arrives. Take care

Love how you've used the faux stitching on the leaves to go with your always lovely machine stitching. Guess it would be a bit of a challenge to actually stitch around the leaves 😀😀

I enjoyed a short sit outside after I got all three dogs back in the house. Soaked up some sunshine! Oh my favorite, Teeny Tiny Tuesday! This one is gorgeous and I will have to see if I can CASe it. I love that beautiful holy paper, so sad that this was the last of it and from the packaging to boot. It is indeed gorgeous. Too bad you didn't scan it as maybe you could have printed yourself some more. Although the colors probably wouldn't be perfectly matched....still. Glad your Mum had a wonderful birthday and that her granddaughter greatly amused everyone. They have a way about them don't they?!! If they can't make one laugh, no one can. lol Hugs, Brenda

Hi Jules, what a sweet card, lovely design and papers.
We were so hot up here in Inverness, 24 degrees, way to hot for me, but now at 7.30 pm it is so dark, I think we are in for some thunder, keep safe, Kate x
