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

It is time for another new challenge to be launched over on the Allsorts Challenge blog.

This week the theme has been chosen by my lovely team mate Emma and she has chosen to challenge you to make a card/ gift for Mothers Day or for someone who is like a mum to you...................

This week we have a new sponsor .. .. .. My Favorite Things and although they do lots of images too I chose to make my card just using their papers.

It is a bit of a different card for me this week as it doesn't feature an image - but I like it nonetheless.

This used:

Papers: My Favorite Things "Holiday collection - olive"
Cricut Cartridges: "Home Accents" for the swirls and "George and Basic Shapes" for the letters and heart
Flower: Made up of several Prima Hydrangea Petals
Pearls and brad from the stash box

I hope that you get the chance to play along this week and don't forget to pop over and see if you were the winner of my challenge last week .. .. .. or one of my Top 5!

Thanks for calling by and have a good weekend.

Love Jules xx

Jules this card is stunning. Those papers are gorgeous! I keep telling myself I can't justify buying a Cricut but I'm getting seriously tempted seeing things like this.
