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.

SNOOZING STAN

Hi Everyone

I hope your day has been good and that you haven't got too wet today .. .. it has been pretty much constant rain all day here today and I have seen lots of drenched children making their way backwards and forwards to school.  Those poor kids having to sit in wet clothes all day :-(

Luckily I haven't had to venture any further than the dining room table and kitchen worktops today (yes I even take those over for crafty creating .. .. they are just the right height for so many jobs).

I am carrying on my theme of male cards for the week .. .. but have to admit to starting to get withdrawal symptoms from my "pretty things". LOL!!  

But here we go anyway:




This used:

Image:  Digistamp Boutique "Snoozing Stan"
Sentiment:  Computer Generated using font "Good Dog Cool"
Backing Papers:  Raspberry Road "Java Joe"
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
White Gel Pen
ProMarkers
Chalk
Cord from the Stash Box

I am also going to enter this into the April Digistamp Boutique Challenge.

A bit earlier from me tonight and now I need to move all my crafty goodies from the kitchen and replace them with ingredients for dinner.  We fancied salad and jacket spuds when deciding what to have last night but on a cold and wet day like today that just doesn't feel right does it?

Catch you again tomorrow.

Love

Anne said...

Love your card as always Jules but can't see the heart tonight! Possibly because we've had workmen since 0730 and the house is in an uproar. Didn't realise there would be so much disruption over a new boiler. Roll on bedtime, cleaning will be tomorrow! Hugs x

Your cars is perfect Jules and reminds me of my Dad of an evening, so happy thoughts.

Rain all day here yet again, Eddy's been mega busy building the Arc so we might drift your way if we catch the wind right. Pop the bacon butties on just in case.

lisa said...

Your male cards are great, Jules and we all need them, although I know what you mean about pretty things. I always prefer to be adding flowers to my cards and struggle with what to put on masculine ones!!
It's been a shocker of a day hasn't it. I had one of those drenched children arrive home at 3.30 very soggy. It's definitely a day for a bit of comfort food. It was Lasagne for us.
Take care
Hugs Lisax

Sally said...

Such a fun image on this fab card Jules. It's just not the same making cards for guys is it? Perhaps that's why we dread them so much. lol. I stayed in all day as well 'cos of the persistant rain.

Elizabeth said...

A late hello, Jules, I don't know where yesterday went, or today for that matter. So just had to pop in before going to bed. Another great card - you must have a nice supply of these male cards now, always handy to have a few in store. Right, I'm off - too tired to do anything else :) Goodnight, my friend. Elizabeth x

Beryl said...

Great image - I bet that's the ideal pastime for some men on their birthdays - and every other day for some I'll bet.
Water pouring in the back door all day today. Need to drill some proper drainage holes tomorrow. Can't think why there aren't any. Hope it stops raining for a bit so I'm not drilling in the rain.
