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 everyone had a brilliant weekend .. .. and managed not to get sunburnt!! 

Mr Heart and I went out for a meal on Saturday evening and saw quite a few people "with a glow" about them !!

Today I am here with my Monday's male card .. ..

This used:

Backing papers:  Scrapberry's "Edge of Town"
Sentiment:  Anita's "Happy Birthday" background stamp (very, very, very old)
Tim Holtz Sizzix Die: "656636" Gadget Gears
Scrapberry's Stencil:  "Gear Wheels"
Dreamweaver Metallic Silver Embossing Paste (for use with the stencil"
Pebeo Gilding Wax:  Silver and Copper for adding to the black die cuts
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Twine from my crafty stash box

I really enjoyed making this card .. .. it was great to play with the embossing paste and the gilding wax that was opened very early doors this morning!

I can see lots of potential for the wax and am looking forward to playing a little more.  

A very "different" type of card for me .. .. not a cute image in sight!!  LOL!!

Have a great day everyone.

A brilliant card Jules, your background is fabulous, it goes so well with your die cut gears - a super masculine design.

A great male card - why are male cards always more challenging? Or at least they are to me.
Weather was fabulous here over the weekend but pouring with rain now!

I really like this style of card and the gears look really good with the metallic finish - great for a male of any age really (except maybe a tiny tot).
