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 we are starting the weekend off with another Allsorts Challenge.

Last week saw a massive number of entries into Kirsten's "Pink and Brown" theme. Don't forget to check back whether you were chosen as one of Kirsten's Top 5 or even the random org winner!!

This week the theme has been set by my lovely teamie Lisa. I really struggled with this theme .. .. .. "Hearts and Flowers" .. ... LOL!!! Only joking - it was right up my street.

Here is what I created:

This used:

Backing Papers: Pink Petticoat "Just an Old Fashioned Girl"
Heart: Sizzix Frame, Heart "655459"
Nail Heads: Josy Rose
Ribbon and paper flowers from the stash box

I look forward to seeing what you all create this week and hope that you all have a lovely weekend .. .. .. with at least a little bit of time to yourself to perhaps do a bit of crafting.

Love Jules xx
