My photo
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

So late getting my card onto my blog that I am already round to Thursday (who stole Wednesday?!?!?)  LOL!!

There is still a need for more baby boy cards here in the House of Hearts, so I decided to head in that direction today, and at the same time utilise the sketch that The Male Room challenge would like us to play with.

Here is my offering:

This used:

Image:  DoCrafts "Forever Friends"
Sentiment:  Pink Petticoat
Backing Papers:  Forever Friends "New Arrival" (another really old one that I am trying to use up)
Stampin' Up!:  Sentiment Punch (not sure they do this one any more)
X-Cut Flower Punch (another discontinued one)
Pennant Dies:  Unbranded from Amazon
Circle Die
Nail Heads
My Trusty Sewing Machine

I am beginning to think that over three quarters of my crafty stash is discontinued!  It will be starting to have antique value soon!  LOL!!

So this is the sketch

Catch you again soon everyone.

Hope your week is going well.
