My photo
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

Hopefully Mr Blogger is playing along with me and posting this for you to see.

We have a new challenge happening over at Allsorts today and the theme this week is being set by my lovely teamie Kirsten who has asked that we work in "Brown and Pink".

Here is what I came up with:

This used:

Backing Papers: Funky Fairys "Chocolate Covered Christmas"
Image: Magnolia "Big Daisy"
Fiskars Punch: Threading Water
Nestabilities Die: Classic Scalloped Rectangles Small
Dew Drops from the stash box
My trusty old sewing machine

I layered the flower head up 3 times to give it a bit of depth. It is one of those creations that looks better in real life than in a photograph! Shame!!

Have a great weekend everyone and don't forget to check whether you were the winner of last week's prize over at Allsorts or one of Emma's Top 5!!

Love Jules xx
