A very warm welcome to my teeny, tiny part of the huge world of blogging. This is where I 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 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.

Bring on the "Male Cards"

Hi Everyone

I hope you all had a great weekend - all done and dusted far too quickly for my liking!!!

I have been asked for some male cards. You know the ones we seem to struggle with (or is it just me???!!!!). So you may find a little run of male cards appearing here. Some need to be for Father's Day, some for birthdays and some just general male.

Here is the first of what I hope will be many over the next week or two.. ..

This card was created using:

Image - Woodware FRCL004 "His Birthday"
Sentiment - Woodware FRCL079 "Male Relative"
Backing paper - Funky Hand "V. Funky" CD
Buttons, peel offs, cotton from my stash box

Once again I enjoyed the paper piecing on this card. Can you believe I cut out 6 ties before I could decide which ones I wanted to use!!!

The ties have all been cut from scraps of paper (you know the stupid little pieces that we can't possibly throw away) and I think by coincidence these were all Funky Hand papers too.

So, I need to get my head into "male mode" and this was a nice gentle start.

Happy Monday everyone.

Thanks for calling by and see you again soon.

Love Jules xx

Hi Julie,

I know this isn't the right place for this but I'm not sure how this all works and I know you will get this if I leave this here. Thank you for baby George's card and also my Birthday card. Emma has plans to frame your card for the nursery and everyone comments on the card when they visit. Thanks again, I'll send you a picture as soon as I figure how to do it. Love Ian, Emma and little George xxx

This is great Jules, and no, it's not just you, I think we all have a phobia about men's cards, especially those who don't drink or like sport!!
