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

Happy Friday!!

The weekend is here already!!

I am so pleased that it isn't this time last week .. .. and that the move is behind us.

This weekend is definitely going to be a "chill to your boots" one!!

My share today uses a fabby image from the Digistamp Boutique.  I really enjoyed colouring this little chappie!

This used:

Image: Digistamp Boutique "Funtime Dan"
Sentiment:  Computer generated using font "Mister Sirloin"
Backing Papers:  Nitwits "Land Ho Too"
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Nestabilities:  Classic Circle and Eyelet Circle
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads

and I entering this into the Digistamp Boutique challenge for May.

Time now for my fish and chip supper!!!  Mmmmm....  I love Friday evenings.

Oh and I keep forgetting to share my news!!  For those who have been asking me how I am doing with the "Fast Diet" .. .. I have now lost exactly ONE STONE!!!  Woo hoo!!  It has taken me three months but I am well chuffed.  A little further to go but not too far.

Have a brilliant weekend everyone.

Hi Jules, You will love that stamp - I have used it again on my post tomorrow which I think looks better! I was also taken with one you have used for several makes which I am blogging next week. Congratulations on your weight loss, I resisted the fish & chips tonight but succumbed to a cornish pasty!!! This is a lovely card with a really cute image - my boys were never that clean! I like the yo ho ho paper. Have a lovely weekend, Pauline xx

GREAT little boy card!!!
Love that cute image...and the design of your card.
That is such great news in the weight loss have done so well...
I need to get back on some sort of plan...I have regained all the weight I lost last year...some from overeating but also from not being at the same level of excercise I used to do...drat! Still on the poles...
Soon we will be up at the lake and there is a gym and pool there...I like aquafit classes and don't mind the walking machine so hopefully that gets me back on track!

Off to catch up on the posts I've missed while busy in the garden.
