My photo
A very warm welcome to my teeny, tiny part of the huge world of blogging. This is where I am hoping to 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 always 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

Woo hoo!!!  It's Friday and the weekend starts here!!  Yippee!!

I hope everyone has had a good day .. .. most of mine has been spent in Father's Day mode .. .. and this is one of my fav makes of the day.. .. ..

This used:

Image:  Penny Black "1037K" Lovin' Flowers
Sentiment:  Butterfly Kisses "BK2002D" Father's Day
Backing Papers:  DCWV Retro Prints Paper Stack.
Distress Ink:  Tea Dye
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads

Cord from the stash box

and that is my share for the day.

We are hoping for some gardening weather over the next couple of days as we want to spend most of the weekend in the garden. 

Most of the seeds are starting to make an appearance and need potting on etc and we still have more weed and bramble infested garden to work on .. .. but it is coming along nicely. 

I hope everyone has a lovely weekend .. .. whatever you are doing.

Smashing card Jules, love the sentiment stamp and the image is lovely.

Just seen the weather on tv Jules, dos'nt sound very promising for you to get that garden done, you'll be dodging the showers by all accounts, perhaps you'd better stick with crafting instead! LOL
Hugs Jacee

Nearly missed the heart on this one - Lovely card. The sentiment box is really different - I like . Is it computer generated or a stamp.

I love everything about this card. The papers, the really cute stamp & the font you've chosen. I'm hoping to spend the weekend in the garden as well doing boring chores like privet trimming etc. Have a good weekend.

Hello Jules!
Such a gorgeous and cute masculine card. And that beautiful colored image fits perfect with your plans for the weekend:) I spend this evening weeding in the front yard.......
And tomorrow no gardening for me; maybe some crafting and tomorrow night friends invited us for a barbecue :)
Enjoy your weekend!
