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 Wednesday!

I hope everything is going well for you all at the moment.

A very frosty start here but it turned into a lovely sunny (but still cold) day.

Trying very hard here to find some time to get myself back into the swing of blogging again and I made a little inroad with a teeny tiny make (a whole 3.5 inches square for anyone new to my blog). 

My first playtime in quite a while, using an old image that I can remember buying from Ally Pally many, many years ago (April 2010 to be exact), and I still love it as much as I did on the day I bought it. 

This used:

Image:  Whiff of Joy "Henry Hugging Heart"
Sentiment:  LOTV Sentiment Labels - Clear Stamp Set
All Papers and Card from Snippet Mountain
We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board .. .. for the tiny envelope.  I used a larger snippet for this, folding so that the pattern is inside the envelope.

So with a mini "hit" on snippet mountain I am taking this teeny tiny card over to the Snippets Playground Challenge

The challenge now has it own sparkly new home (still run by the lovely Di)  .. .. .. and it looks wonderful.

Hopefully I'll catch you again soon.

Happy New Year Jules! It is bitter cold here too, but tomorrow will be a little warm up for us, then right back to the bitter cold. Snow, ice, rain....we had it all in one evening. I'm so over winter. lol This teeny tiny is adorable! I love this little guy and that sweet express he has on his face. He sure is putting a big ole hug into that heart for someone! Well you got back into blogging before me. I really had a slow start! Ended the year with nothing as well. lol Stay warm my friend. Hugs, Brenda
