My photo
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.

Hi Everyone

Today is my "baby boy's" birthday!!

I have just come back from delivering his birthday goodies and so can now safely post his card here.

My son normally ends up with music/guitar themed cards because he is totally obsessed with music .. .. so I decided this year he should have a change. What else does he do with his time .. .. well the same as most young folk I suppose .. .. plays video games!!!

So this is his birthday card from hubby and I
and the funky close up version
This used:

Image: Digital Pencil Too "Video Boy"
Backing Papers: Trimcraft "Say it with a Smirk" For Him
Sentiment: Computer Generated
Ticket Sentiment: Hero Arts "CL171" Sparkle Clear: Tickets
Josy Rose: Nail Heads
Diamond Stickles
Cord from the stash box

The background papers have foil effects which I think you are just about able to make out on the photographs.

Have a lovely weekend everyone.

Catch you again tomorrow.

Love Jules xx
