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

A share today that is another one I made using the brilliant Funky Hand CD "Dreams Come True".

I am beginning to see a theme running through the projects I am posting using this CD .. .. .. I always seem to use papers from the dark colour collections!!!

This is a shame because there are so many bright and beautiful colours and patterns on there. I must leave a post-it note by the computer to say "choose a vibrant colour range this time!!!" LOL!!!

One of the good parts about this CD is that you actually load it onto your computer - no seeking out CDs and booting up your computer with them. It is just sitting there all the time on my desktop waiting to be played with!!!

This used:

Funky Hand CD: "Dreams Come True" Papercraft Factory for the backing papers and the "Love" letters
Cuttlebug: Embossed Heart set
Fiskars: Threading Water Punch

Martha Stewart: Frond Punch
Woodware: Flower punch for making the flowers I am beginning to wish
Brenda had never shown me how to make!! (only joking Brenda - I love them - but can't stop making them!!).
Eyelets, pearls and thread from the stash box

I don't think that you will have any problem finding a heart today!! LOL!!!

Anice is back on the TV again tomorrow Create and Craft .. .. 11.00am.

So reserve the best seat in the house or get your TV set to record. There will be lots of inspiration from Anice and my Funky Hand teamies.

I also used this card in the "By the Cute and Girly" love challenge this month. There are quite a few entries appearing on the challenge blog - well worth a little look-see. Lots of lovely prizes on offer too.

Take care everyone and I will see you again tomorrow with the next Allsorts Challenge.

Love Jules xx

I saw this Papercraft Factory on the website and I'm tempted but not sure just what or how much is on it. Love this card (saw something like this on there too). It's such a lovely design.
