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

Saturday .. .. again!!! So time for yet another Allsorts Challenge to be launched.

This week it has been set by my lovely teamie "Debs" - and her theme is a recipe challenge where you need to use 3 of one thing, 2 of another and 1 of something else. "A recipe with a difference" - the difference being that you decide what your 3, 2, 1 items are going to be.

This week the prize has been donated by our regular monthly sponsor - Digistamp Boutique. Thank you Sally-Anne.

Some of the DT have used some of Sally-Anne's images on their creations so make sure you go over and take a peep at them. Sally-Anne has also provided us with one of your lovely creations too.

Here is what I created:

This used:

Image - Digistamp Boutique "Single Flower"
Background papers - Pink Petticoat
Martha Stewart Punch - Embossed Zig Zag
Buttons, Brad and ribbon from the stash box

My 3, 2, 1 items being - 3 brads, 2 buttons and 1 ribbon.

Have a lovely weekend everyone and I look forward to seeing what you have created.

Today is the last day for entering the special blog hop and challenge that is being sponsored by Sir Stampalot. You can read all about both here - if you haven't already taken part.. .. .. but you only have today left. Closing date and time for entries is midnight GMT tonight !! So no pressure LOL!!!!!!

Thanks for calling by.

Love Jules xx
