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 Saturday!  I hope your weekend has got off to a good start.

Mine has been a day for "happy couples" calling by .. .. which is always exciting.  I love hearing about everyone's wedding plans and get just as excited about everything as the bride (and sometimes the groom) do!  LOL!!

So, what I want to know is why are there only baby boys happening in my life at the moment.  What has happened to the baby girls?

Every newborn baby card request has been male .. .. and I enjoyed adding a new design into the mix this week!

This used:

Image:  Lili of the Valley Digi Image: Bunny Moon
Sentiment:  Computer Generated using font Aracne Condensed and then stamped around with the plain tag from the Lili of the Valley Christmas SentimentsTag Set
Backing Paper:  The Lovely Studio  (was Pink Petticoat)  Gingham
First Edition Dies:  Nesting Doily
Josy Rose: Nail Heads
Tumble Glass Distress Ink for painting a light background to the image
Glamour Dust
Eyelet and Eyelet setter
Dimension Pads
Ribbon and Cord from my crafty stashbox
and my Trusty Sewing Machine

and that is me for today.

The sky has just gone very dark so time to run like the wind to the washing line.

Catch you again soon folks and have a lovely weekend.

I love your pretty baby card, the LOTV images are so cute and the gingham design paper is perfect.
I can tell you where all the baby girls are, they being born into my family. I have five great granddaughters under five and another one due before Christmas. I'm just glad for all their sakes that somebody is having boys.!
