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

I hope your day has been good.

I decided on my theme for this week .. .. new babies .. .. another favourite make of mine.

Not sure why people say "new baby" though because I have never known anyone have an "old baby".  LOL!!!

It is a busy old week in the House of Hearts this week (just for a change) so quick posts from me this week. If I was organised I suppose I would have a week's worth scheduled .. .. but sadly I haven't had chance to do that.

Anyway, here we go with 1 of 5 on the baby front .. .. 

This used:

Image:  Digistamp Boutique "Baby Dan" .. .. isn't he a cutie?!?!?
Sentiment:  Computer Generated using font "Arial Narrow"
Backing Papers:  DCWV "Nana's Nursery" Baby Boy
ProMarkers and Chalk
My Trust Sewing Machine
X-Cut Corner Rounder Punch
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Ribbon from the Stash Box

I am also going to enter this into the Digistamp Boutique Challenge for June

So the football didn't quite go to plan did it yesterday!!  Never mind!!  Hubby is used to supporting teams that don't win so he wasn't too heartbroken.  Tee hee!!!

Have a lovely evening everyone.  I'll catch you again soon.

Need to go and get ready for a lovely "happy couple".
