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

I hope you have had a lovely Saturday.

Mine has been lovely.  Nice and chilled and productive (in a crafty way) .. .. which is a good job as there is lots to be done here in the old House of Hearts and I am so excited about it all.

I wish I didn't need to sleep LOL!!

I started the day off with a major clear up in the craft pod .. .. hubby was nearly as impressed as I was .. .. until I told him it would only look like that for around 2 hours!!  

How come with a whole desk to call my own I always end up with just a 12" square to work in LOL!!

Anyway, before the challenge ends I think I need to stroll over to the Penny Black Saturday Challenge where the theme this month is "Boys, boys, boys" and here is my entry .. .. I wouldn't send this to a girl so it must be a boy card:

This used:

Image:  Penny Black "2068K" Party Pooped!
Sentiment:  Computer Generated using font Mr Sirloin BTN Rare
Backing Papers:  DCWV "Citrus Stack"
My Favourite Things:  Die-namics "Traditional Tags Stax"
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Spellbinders Nestabilities: Classic Squares
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Glossy Accents
Glamour Dust
Metallic Cord and Eyelet from My Stash Box

and that is me.

Off to link up and then tuck into some yummy spare ribs!

Catch you again tomorrow with my snippet makes.

Awww, this card is too cute Jules! I love the image of the mice with their full bellies-too cute!! Love the glossy accents on the candles too. I have this paper pack-well what is left of it anyway and I just love it. Love how you used it on this card. Hugs, Brenda

You do better than me if you leave yourself a 12x12" space to work with. I barely get an A2 size left when I get on a roll.

Sweet little hedgies all stuffed on cake. They look like they celebrated good and hard. It is a fun card any boy (of any age) would be pleased to receive.
