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

I hope your Thursday has been good.

Just a quick and easy card from me tonight.

I nearly called my post "one for the men folk" but then thought better of it as I know some ladies enjoy a drink of beer too (not me though .. .. I hate the stuff unless it is drowned in lemonade .. .. sacrilege I hear the beer lovers saying).

I always upload my photographs as the last thing I do on my posts .. .. but tonight I only have the patience to upload one .. .. and this has taken ages!!!  I will add the others if things improve .. .. but in the meantime I think I should make a card that says "Stay Calm . .. . .. Mr Blogger will deal with your up-load request "eventually"!!

This one photographs has taken about 20 minutes to post here.

Anyway here we go with today's share:

This used:

Image:  Pink Gem Designs  "Keep Calm Men Set"
Sentiment:  Computer Generated using font Rockwell Extra Bold
Backing Paper:  Pink Petticoat "Pinstripes"  (mine is the white download printed onto cream card)
Nestabilities:  Classic Circle and Eyelet Circles
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Gold cord from the Stash Box

and that is it!!!

No colouring today :-(

Catch you again soon

Fabulously masculine, I'm with you about beer, awful stuff! but each to their own.

Thanks for your visit, I know you've been so busy making happy couples even happier, so I don't mind that some time goes by between visits.

Hello Jules, I cannot stand beer either except if it's a very very hot day and I'm super thirsty.

I think this is a marvellous card and I would think of it as a masculine card - but then I am old fashioned.
