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

Well if Mr Blogger is happy and not taking a Bank Holiday break he will have posted this scheduled post for  me .. .. ..  and "the move of the year" will be underway!!

We finished around 8.00 last night and should have reported for duty around 8.30 this morning!!

The main part of the fun being that we have to go "down" three floors worth of steps to get out of where our Son currently lives and then go up another three floors worth of steps at the other end.  There is a lift though at the new place so hopefully some trips can be made in that .. .. though the big stuff isn't going to fit in   it (hence getting the heavy mob involved to do that part up all those steps LOL!!!).

We should be fit by the end of the Bank Holiday.  Hopefully not just "fit to drop".

So here is the card I have made for us to give our Son once we have placed the furniture somewhere that he can display it:

This used:

Image:  Pink Petticoat "Little Bee Cuties"
Sentiment:  Part comes with the image and the remainder was computer generated using font "Zipty Do"
Backing Paper:  Pink Petticoat "Honeycomb"
Glamour Dust
Black and White Gel Pens
Button and Twine from my stash box

I printed the bee image twice, cutting the second out and sticking the body down on top of the first.. .. leaving the wings free (and smothered with a good helping of glamour dust).

So that is me for today

I am hoping to find a few crafty minutes somewhere to play with my snippets tomorrow .. .. but we will have to wait and see.

Have a great Bank Holiday weekend everyone.

I'll let you know what time the flat warming party begins!!

This is a beautiful card, such a sweet image from Pink Petticoat and you've used it in such a lovely clean-cut way. I've only just found your blog, so I'm off to have a good look around for some more inspiration!

MagsB said...

My goodness, moving is hard work at the best of times, but going down and up 3 flights of stairs as well sounds exhausting! I hope you'll treat yourself to a lovely bubble bath this evening!

What can I say about your card except that it's fabulous - as always! I love the little bee, and his glittery wings look so good!

Have a great Bank Holiday!

love Mags B x

Brilliant card and if you don't mind me saying your cards are so very classy without being overloaded with embellishments.
Good luck with the rest of the move, the stairs would kill my knees, I would have to be carried up along with the furniture lol.
