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

Well another month has flown by and it is time for a new challenge to start over at Get Funky!

The challenge for April has been set by my lovely Funky Teamie "Kathy" and she has set the theme of "April Showers".

Make sure you pop over and see what the DT have created .. .. .. there are some gorgeous projects.

Here is mine:

Everything on this creation has been taken from the V.Funky CD with the exception of the sentiment - this was computer generated and the diamond glaze for the raindrops.

I had forgotten about the gorgeous paper I have used for the background until I was having a click through all the papers on the CD. I love how the colour gradually changes. This CD will be staying in action for a little while now I can tell!!

Whenever I make a card I always leave it standing about to make sure I really, really like it and every time I have glanced at this one I have ended up humming or singing what I know of the tune. LOL!!!
It would be lovely to see you joining in the challenge this month - but remember that you do have to use at least one Funky Hand design paper or digi image on your creation.

Take care everyone and I will see you again soon.

Love Jules xx

Love those shiny raindrops Jules and you're right, the colour graduation on the background paper is lovely.

A beautiful springlike card (although we've had a smattering of snow this morning)

Beautiful card, Jules. Love the raindrops - look much nicer that the hailstones that got me earlier!

Kathy said...

This is wonderful. I love the raindrops - much nicer than the "real" sort! The flowers look great arranged like that, and the colours are all so lovely

This is beautiful Jules - though snowflakes might have been more appropriate yesterday! lol. I found myself the proud recipient of one of your cards yesterday. Very special.
