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

It is time for another challenge over at Allsorts and this week the theme has been set by my lovely teamie "Gro".

Gro would like to see the colour purple on your creations.

This week we are sponsored by Alison from Stretch and Bubbles. Alison has recently started designing her own digital stamps and is offering one very lucky winner their own choice of four digi images from her new store.

As a DT we were given a range of images to work with - and the DT guessed straight away which one I would choose to work with. LOL!!!

This used:

My image from Stretch and Bubbles
Backing paper: DCWV "Christmas Multi Stack" - the sentiment was already printed on the paper
Sizzix Die : Stars #2
The snowflake punch that has no name!!
Glamour dust
Ribbon, tiny bells and gems from the stash box

I am hoping that Mr Blogger has played along and has kindly posted this for me this morning as I am away at a craft fair with my lovely Sis. She has been creating her handmade bags for weeks in readiness for this weekend - I hope it is a good venue and that she does well as she has worked so hard.

It will be our first time here and unfortunately there was no room for any more cards this time but we are sussing the place out in the hope of possibly being able to both sell our wares next year.

Oh - I nearly forgot. Thank you to everyone who took part in the challenge last week. Don't forget to check whether you were successful in the random org and whether you were chosen by Lisa as one of her top 5.

Have a lovely weekend everyone.

Love Jules xx
