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.

Morning folks

Saturday morning and another Allsorts Challenge day. This week it is my turn to set the challenge and I have gone for "a label, tag or ticket" on your creation.

I chose this theme well in advance and then later heard that we have a new sponsor for my week .. .. .. .. "Digital Inc Co" .. .. .. .. and we were all given a lovely image to work with.

I gained a gorgeous Japanese lady and suddenly thought .. how do I get a label, tag or ticket to work alongside it?!?!?!? All the ideas I had when I set the theme went out of the window and I ended up doing the following:

This used:

Image: Digital-Ink Co
Background paper: Funky Hand "Dreams Come True" CD
Punches to make roses, leaves and my label
Gold Glamour Dust
Nailheads: Josy Rose
Ribbon and cord from the stash box

I hope that lots of you get chance to play along this week as the prize will be 3 images of your choice from Digital-Ink Co.

Why not pop over to the challenge blog and see what my lovely team mates have created with their images .. .. .. they are wonderful!!

Have a great weekend everyone .. .. .. we gained a little bit of snow in the night but I think today is supposed to be bright and beautiful.

Thank you so much for calling by.

Love Jules xx

Hi Jules, thank you for the comments about my MIL, I think she enjoys the cards I send her, but I enjoy making them for her, they are different from the norm.
