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 a special day as it is the birthday of my "first born".

I know that he has opened his card and that he loved it so that was good news.

He lives in London so unfortunately I don't get to see him as much as I would like to .. .. but last time we were together I was showing his wife the KennyK images on their website (she wears boots that are very like the ones on the images and I knew she would appreciate them) .. .. .. whilst looking my Son saw this image and commented that it looked a bit like him.  So straight away I knew what was going to be on his birthday card LOL!!!

Here is the creation

This used:

Image:  KennyK Download "Techno Guy"
Backing Papers:  Funky Hand and Cuddly Buddly
Sentiment:  Funky Hand "Alpha-bits"
Ticket Sentiment: Hero Arts "CL171" Sparkle Clear: Tickets
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Punch (sorry don't know who made it) for the musical notes

The Son I have made this card for is also musical .. .. the same as his younger brother .. .. but this one plays the keyboard - though he doesn't own one that looks like this!!

So that is me for today but before I go I must make a huge apology ahead of time.  I am preparing for a craft fair at the weekend and I still have lots to do .. .. .. so although I will try my best to post each day I'm afraid I am not going to be able to do any commenting.  Please don't think I am being rude or ignoring you .. .. I am just very short of time and need to grab what time I can where I can.  I am sure you all understand.

I have a stand at Drayton Manor near Tamworth on Sunday and am keeping my fingers crossed that it is going to be busy.

Have a good evening everyone.
