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 Thursday!

It is looking like we are in for another lovely day here today.  The sun has got his hat on already (and the washing machine is working its magic)!!

So today starts the next theme for my blog .. .. Thursday's Child where I am going to be posting anything child related. 

This is my (rather bright) creation for today .. .. .. 

This used:

Image:  Bugaboo:  Frame It - Bears Birthday  (whilst linking up I noticed there is a 50% off sale happening until the 8th May!!)
Sentiment:  Kolette Hall:  Party! 
Backing Papers:  Wild Rose Studio:  Polka Dots
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Glamour dust used with a glue pen for the frame
Glossy Accents for the bears noses
My Trusty Sewing Machine

and that is it!

I must admit I think that bear at the bottom of the frame looks a bit worried. I wonder if he forgot to order the birthday cake!!  

My themes are nearly all complete now.  Friday is going to be "Feminine Friday" as named by the lovely Eve.  I was planning on calling it Female Friday .. .. but I much prefer Eve's title.  (She is clearly much more sophisticated than whot I is).   LOL!!!

Just Saturday to sort out now and that will be my week complete .. .. and if all goes to plan those themes will result in a nice mix of cards for my stock boxes.

Have a good day everyone.  Must dash .. ..  the crafty "must do" list is VERY long and I need to be extra hyper today!!  Certainly the lovely sunshine will help.

Hi Jules
I am so glad that my suggestions were helpful - tee hee.... sophisticated indeed!!! NOT!! LOL!!!

Your Thursdays child card is fabulous and just perfect. Love the bright colours!

It is sunny in Devon too and just as well as I have a full football team kit drying on the line (eldest son's team). It looks like a washing powder commercial!!

I've had another thought about Saturday - how about 'seasonal or Santa Saturday' so that we can see your stunning Christmas cards?!
I told you I would try anything LOL!!

Hope you have a glorious day.
Love Eve xx

Hi Jules - your card is bright and beautiful. I thought about Saturday as 'suit yourself Saturday' and have an anything goes day or 'Saturday Specials' for those special occasions. Do you know, I think I might have had too much sun today, lol! Weather wise I think it is going to be a fab weekend, so don't forget to take some time out. Happy days! Lynn x
