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 Tuesday is going to be a good one.

Just a scheduled post today (if it works).  I don't think I have scheduled one since Mr Blogger made all the changes .. .. so we will have to wait and see if I managed it OK.

Lots of work on at this end so plenty to keep me out of mischief .. .. .. but Christmas is still needing to be looked at seriously now, and Christmas wouldn't be Christmas here unless this beauty of a die comes out to play.  I use it every year and it is just perfect on my teeny tiny cards (3.5 inches square for anyone new to my blog).

This used:

Memory Box Die "Pine Border Outline"
Backing Paper - Make and Create "Marble Dreams"  (I was quite lucky that there were two papers that had the same pattern but were different colours .. .. .. I thought they both look like falling snow).
Sentiment:  Cut & Make "Mini Christmas Die"
Nail Heads
My Trusty Sewing Machine

and that is it!  A tiny post for a tiny card.

I hope all is well with everyone.  All systems go at this end and hopefully a visit from the London kids at the weekend.  We haven't seen them (other than via Facetime) since 2019 .. .. .. so I can't wait.  Just hoping nothing happens to spoil it.

Have a good day!

Wonderful Christmas card, Jules. This really is a lovely die and I love the colours you’ve used. xx

Well it appears to have worked. Oddly enough I also did a scheduled post for the first time in absolutely ages, certainly not since Blogger was 'improved' aka updated. Mine worked as well, aren't we clever?? 🤣. Almost forgot to say that I think this is a fabulous card and another die which looks really handy for this time of year. Great choice of papers. Enjoy your visit at the weekend. I should be seeing family including a granddaughter (with new baby) I've not seen her for such a long time.

My favorite day, Teeny Tiny Tuesday! This one is a beauty Jules. I do love that die as I see it all over blogland. I love the way you used it on your teeny tiny card. The papers are fabulous and love the two tone colors. A simple, but very effective Christmas card! Hugs, Brenda
