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.

BIG BROTHER

Tee hee .. .. no .. .. not Big Brother the TV show .. .. .. my Big Brother!!!

He is the big 60 on Friday the 13th!!!!

I showed you the card I made for my Mum to give to him.  Well here is the one I have just been and popped in the post for him from the House of Hearts.





This used:

Image:  Stamp Fairy
Sentiment:  Pink Petticoat and Woodware Clear Stamps "FRCL107" Wedding Anniversaries
Backing Papers:  Nitwits
Martha Stewart:  Embossed Zig Zag
Sizzix Die:  Stars 2
ProMarkers and Chalk
Glamour Dust:  Silver and Gold
Cord from the Stash Box

So as you can see I have used my favourite Nitwit papers .. .. again!!!

Lots of hearts for my lovely brother .. .. because I love him loads.

Sorry I am short and sweet again but I have masses to be getting on with here on the wedding front .. .. but I would like to ask just one question before I go.

Where have all those dandelions suddenly appeared from overnight?  I saw masses of the blighters on my walk to the post box and now I can just envisage them blowing all their seeds in the direction of the House of Hearts in a few days time.  Grrr!!!

I wonder if you can buy huge mosquito nets that would cover the whole of my front and back garden!!  

Love

Super card for your brother Jules.Love the masculine DP.
Someone once told me that you know when spring is here by the dandelions. Not that you`d notice by the weather we`re having but you never know....

Katina said...

Fab Jules! I love cards for men that are masculine but have a cuteness about them too. This is a perfect example.

Dandelions don't come anywhere near our garden any more. A nice man from Green Thumb comes round every three months and puts something on the lawn that keeps them away.

Beryl said...

I think those dandelions are there lurking, just waiting for 5 minutes of sun and then there they are.
Your brother will love this card - it's cute but manly. Hope your brother is too and he enjoys his special day.

I'm guessing there's no bonus points for finding the heart on this card lol!!

Don't know about the dandelions, maybe the rain has encouraged them?
