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.

Good morning everyone

Here is my DT card for the Allsorts Challenge this week.

The theme is "Snowflakes in September".

As a team we all enjoyed this challenge. I am thinking that we all love snowflakes!!!

Here is my creation

This used:

Image: Inkadinkado "96856 - DD" ~ unfortunately this little chappie doesn't seem to have a name ~ but I love him anyway and I call him "the snowman I can't sell". (this gorgeous little chappie has a copyright clause on him - so I just make him to give away at Christmas to "special friends etc").
Backing papers: Pink Petticoat
Sentiment: Penny Black 3535F "snowflakes"
Snowflakes: Cuttlebug dies
Crystal Stickles Glamour Dust
Inkssentials "Glossy Accents"
Ribbon and brads from the stash box

I hope you take time to look at my fellow team mates collections - they are wonderful - and that you perhaps find time to take part in the challenge .. .. .. .. but most of all I hope that you have a lovely weekend and that you take time to make some special memories.

But remember if you take part in this challenge you will have at least one card ready for Christmas.

Happy weekend everyone, and happy crafting.

Love Jules xx

Morning Jules

I think he is very much a rural snowman, a sort of Fen edge to him with that rather large carrot (we grow the largest ones out here you know), so the torn edges all work rather well with him.

Nice touch glitterig the edges of the blue panel as well.

Have a good weekend, perhaps no suprises this week though.
