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 enjoyed Friday .. .. .. all day I have thought today was Saturday no matter how many times I have told myself it wasn't LOL!!

Just a quick play today using a sentiment stamp that made me smile when I saw it .. .. and that I thought would be perfect for those awkward male cards we "occasionally" try to make (when we have to).


This used:

Sentiment:  Woodware Singles "FRS147 Birthdays"
Backing Paper:  From the snippet box
My Trusty Sewing Machine

The sentiment stamps beautifully and I am thinking now that it would look great heat embossed, or with each line stamped in a different colour.  Mmmm ... ... which to try next?

Anyway that is me for today .. .. whatever day it is .. .. and I will see your again soon.

Take care everyone.

Great card and words - I have a smallish stamp with those same words. It is actually Saturday today ... I think!! Have a good weekend although it is difficult to tell what is week and what is weekend when staying at home, good job some of my medication comes in foil with days of the week on.

A lovely card and a great sentiment. I've got quite a few Woodware stamps that I bought from my local craft shop (before it closed down) and they always stamp so well.

Oh this is super, I really like that sentiment, its brilliant. I keep getting my days mixed up as well. Trying to have a bit of routine but its difficult with everything still being shut down, Hazelxx

Seen the sentiment but could'nt remember where and I think I have it, looks really great the way you have used it and like you say, perfect for the hard to make cards for gender.
