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 you have all had a lovely Sunday .. .. the weather has been really nice here so the washing line has had to be utilised again!!

My craft pod clear up campaign is still continuing .. .. mainly because lots of goodies need to be returned to their rightful place.  I keep taking boxes to Mum's .. .. bringing them back .. .. taking the completed work out of the box but not all the other contents.  Shame on me!  

So as things were starting to look "a little" more like they should I decided to have a little play with a shaped card .. .. one which Mr Heart drew the template for yesterday.  (He has his uses LOL!!).

Not a huge card.  Just 11.5cm square and I thought it would be great for a Father's Day card .. .. especially if decorated in the recipient's favourite football team colours.  Not that these are Mr Heart's favourite team colours.

In fact if the template was scaled down it could even be of interest to my "happy couples" who have football themed weddings .. .. it would make quite a cute placename.  But my scan n cut would have to do the cutting .. I wouldn't want to cut 80 odd by hand that's for sure.

But my little creation as you can see is another Father's Day card which uses the same DigiStamp Boutique download as on one of my cards from yesterday .. .. just a re-sized blue version instead of the brown version I used yesterday .. .. called "Special Dad Circle".

So that is me for today.  A little earlier than last night!! LOL!!!

Clever Mr Heart to make this template and you've made a great Father's Day card with it. It is another blue sky and sunny day so far again - much more cheerful than grey skies.
