A very warm welcome to my teeny, tiny part of the huge world of blogging. This is where I am hoping to 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 always 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

Saturday morning is here which can only mean one thing. A new challenge over on the Allsorts Challenge Blog.

Lisa has set the challenge and she has chosen a 3 -2-1 theme .. .. .. which means your creation needs to include:

3 Flowers
2 Papers
1 Ribbon

This week's winner (chosen by will receive a 6 x 6 MME Bloom & Grow paper pack.

This week is extra special because we also have Helen working with us as a Guest Designer. Helen won a two week DT spot with us and this is her first week.

Here is my creation:

This used:

Image: The Greeting Farm "Miss Anya Collection"
Papers: DCWV "Retro Prints"
Punch: Woodware Scalloped Square and Fiskars Threading Water
Flowers: Mulberry Street
Pastel Chalks
Brads, Spacers, Charm and Ribbon from my stash box

I hope that you get chance to play along this week and I shall look forward to visiting all of your creations.

Thank you for calling by and have a great weekend everyone.

Love Jules xx

Hi Jules, what a lovely card.

I have the papers that you have used and always thought they were quite masculine but you have managed to make a beautiful card fit for any girly girl!

I also wanted to say thanks for commenting on my first challenge card last week, I found a box of different sentiments and just had to use that one on my card.

Looking forward to next weeks challenge,
