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 are all having a good day ... ... ... especially all of those Dad's out there who will be being spoilt (I hope) for Father's Day, which we are celebrating today here in England! 

Our youngest Son requested a card for Mr Heart and this is what I created for him to give - 

This used:

Sentiment Image:  Digistamp Boutique "Special Dad Circle"
Backing Papers:  From my never ending box of off-cuts
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Dimension Pads

I haven't been able to link to the little beer bottle, glass and "cheers" sentiment and that is because it isn't available just yet.  It will be the free image that people will receive who enter the Facebook competition run by Digistamp Boutique (details at the top of the blog).  But don't worry if you don't do Facebook or don't want to enter the competition because it will be on sale come July . .. . ..  I know it is certainly going to come in super useful here that's for sure.  

The label on the bottle comes blank and you write on it whatever you want it to say.

So that is me for today.  It just leaves me to link up to a couple of challenges:

Cardz for Guyz:  Challenge 196 "Father's Day"
and of course .. .. my personal favourite:  Pixie's Snippets Playground Challenge 328 where you simply have to use snippets of leftover card, ribbon, fabric .. .. in fact left over anything .. .. make a project to share.

Have a lovely day everyone.
