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.

GARDENING SHELF

Hi Everyone

I hope your week has started well.

A very mixed bag of weather here today that's for sure.  One minute it is beautiful and the next horrendous!!  I think we have had a bit of everything except fog and snow!!

Well Father's Day is looming around the corner so I need to get a few suitable cards made .. .. not as easy as Mother's Day ones that's for sure!!  But we all love a challenge don't we. LOL!!!

So here is today's share:




This used:

Image:  Funstamps "FM197" Gardening Shelf
Sentiment:  Those Digistamp Boutique Tags again to which I added my own sentiment using font Mister Sirloin
Backing Papers:  DoCrafts "Wellington"
ProMarkers
Eyelets and Twine from my Stash Box

and that is me for today!

Super short and sweet.

Enjoy what is left of your evening.

Love

Great guy card! You are sure getting your money's worth out of that CD with the tags. They look great on your cards...It must be nice to print the sentiment at the same time too! Do you fussy cut them out? They look like a die they are so "true".
PS Love the Wellie paper!

That's a great image for a 'man' card and I see those tags are coming in very handy.
Forgot to say when you asked - we went all round the little villages around Ilam the other Sunday, then back through Shugborough and along the side of Cannock chase.

Great card Jules! I find it hard to make masculine cards too, but that is what makes it a challenge isn't it?!
