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

Back again after our fun of earlier today .. ..

Tonight I am here with a make for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge where they have a theme of "New Beginnings".

Mine is a special make which I have made for mine and hubby's use .. .. .. every Monday evening!!!!!

This used:

Images:  Penny Black "1753H" Fluffy and "2861F" In Love
Sentiments:  Computer Generated with Font "Disgusting Behaviour"  (LOL!!!  Love the name of this font as much as the font itself !!)
Backing Paper:  Dovecraft "DCDP98" Piece of Cake
Cord from the Stash Box

Inside will be the sheets on which we will be recording our weights each week (hoping that they reduce)!!  At the moment our sheets are just stuffed inside the cupboard .. .. this year we will be being mega posh with our special wallet!!

I hope everyone has had a good Saturday.

Son is skinny, hubby goes to the gym every morning so can eat like a horse ans till has a 34" waist at the age of 54. I have a 34" waist too, lol, but working to get it down. I did lose 3 and a half pounds last week!! xx

Hey Jules. Happy New Year. Sorry I am behind and not commenting on everything but I have admired your recent makes (all of them fab!), checked for hearts (all of them found),laughed at £50 notes on the lawn (and at your poorly hubby's iconoclastic approach to retrieval) and been made happier (by the good news of his reprieve) and the simple enjoyment of viewing your blog! Hugs to you, Lesley

MagsB said...

What a fab idea! Very best of luck with the diet - I'm sure this gorgeous wallet will be a real inspiration!

luv, Mags x
