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.

CARRYING ON WITH THE MALES

Hi Everyone

I hope everyone is well and has had a good Monday.

The weather has been quite good here today .. .. I have managed to dry loads of washing outside .. .. can't be bad!!!

I am carrying on with my theme of the week .. .. male cards .. .. and here is today's share.





This used:

Image:  Saturated Canary
Backing Paper and Sentiment:  Pink Petticoat
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Teeny Tiny Eyelets
ProMarkers and Chalks

and that is all!!!

A few people asked me about the shirt stamp I used on my snippet make yesterday .. .. it is a stamp from Funstamps, Reference No. FP70 .. .. Gent's Shirt.

I had to go to the Post Office today to get some stationery posted off and whilst in the queue was intrigued when watching a couple of women trying to decide between buying a large jiffy bag or a postal box.  Then as part of their decision making process they put inside the jiffy bag a 2 pint bottle of milk and folded the top down to check it would still seal?!?!?!

Surely they weren't going to put that through the postal system?!?!?!  Eeeekkk!!!  

OK that is me for today.

Catch you again tomorrow .. .. have a lovely evening.

Love

No drying of washing outside for me for a few weeks now. The old shed has gone, the lines went to the shed so I'm stuffed. Will have to wait till new shed arrives in a few weeks.I'm trying to imagine why someone would want to post a bottle of milk. Would love to know what they were really posting.
This image is super would do for many a young lad,great papers and sketch.

Elizabeth said...

Well, Jules, as they say in the EM's part of the country, 'There's nowt as queer as folks!' :) Can't begin to imagine why anyone would want to post a bottle of milk!?!?

I'm feeling almost guilty ... not quite but almost ... because we have, for several days, been enjoying dry, sunny weather up here in Ayrshire, and today is no exception. I read yesterday that ever since the hosepipe ban was announced it has hardly stopped raining ... who would have known that a ban could be so effective :)

Another great card - like the colours and the SC image is terrific.
