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

At last I can start to show you some creations I have made using the new Funky Hand CD "Dreams Come True".

I don't know if any of you managed to catch Anice's show on Saturday .. .. it was a sell out for her .. .. I was so pleased.

If you did miss seeing what this wonderful CD is capable of then you get another chance on Friday as Anice is doing another show on Ideal World this Friday (22nd) at 2.00pm.

My card today was made using only the Dreams Come True CD - nothing else - apart from some black card to mount my striped paper on!!

The digi image, backing papers and letters are all on the CD.

I know that pennies are always a little tight so soon after Christmas so if you can't stretch to treating yourself to the CD at the moment then why not enter the Get Funky! Challenge. The prize is a £20 voucher to spend in the Funky Store - so you could use your prize to pay for the CD!!!

I am heavily into Valentine cards at the moment. (Not all for me to send I hasten to add .. .. .. I only send the one!!!).

Off to indulge in a bit more crafty romance.

Catch you all again soon.

Love Jules xx

Hi Jules.
Thank you for your lovely comments. I am so pleased with my new daisy die, thanks again for all your help, it'll be one I use I lot.
Your weekend with Brenda sounds fantastic. Finding a new craft shop is always great fun and having someone to share it with, even better.
I love your bird card too, so simple, but stunning.
All your Valentine's cards sounds very intriguing!!! ~It's so nice to get your teeth into something other than Christmas though isn't it.
Have a great weekend.
