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

Happy Monday!

I hope you are having a good day and the sun is shining nicely for you.

Beautiful here .. .. which means my washing line is groaning under the weight of all the washing .. .. and I will be groaning later about all the ironing I have produced LOL!!

So Monday is my male card day and I have gone for a card which would be suitable for Father's Day which is looming!  But it would also work for a birthday card.


This used:

Image and Sentiment:  Digistamp Boutique "Harry and Beer"
Backing Papers:  Scrapberry's "Edge of Town"
Die-namics Die Set:  Blueprints14
X-Cut Star Punch
My Trusty Sewing Machine

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

Many thanks for all your lovely comments on yesterday's post.  The sketch was very popular and the stamp too.  The stamp is a very old one which I bought from a craft shop that was closing down many years ago. It had been used in their stamp classes .. ..  and I purchased it .. .. along with lots of other pre-loved stamps that had just been "thrown" into a bargain bin!  It is by Hero Arts "H2817" Garden Flowers Sketch.

So that is me for today .. .. off now to design some save the date tags for a potential new "happy couple" and also to try and get my Teeny, Tiny Tuesday card made and scheduled to see if that makes any difference in the length of time it is taking my posts to appear on my dashboard!  

Have a lovely evening everyone.

Love Jules xx
