My photo
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 the new week has got off to a good start for you.

The day has gone really well here .. .. I hope the whole week is full of days like today.  If so I will be well chuffed come the weekend.

My share today is for taking over to the Digistamp Boutique Challenge for July and uses an image that I love and use lots.  He is great for male cards.  I love giving him different shirts LOL!!

This used:

Image:  part of the Cheeky Monkey Set
Sentiment:  Computer generated using font "2Peas Barefoot Professor"
Backing Paper:  DCWV Latte Stack
ProMarkers and Chalk
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Ribbon from My Stash Box

and that is it!

Another share already lined up for tomorrow so will hopefully see you then.

Enjoy what is left of your evening.
