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.

Hopefully you won't have any problems finding the heart LOL!!!

So what news do I have today:

1. My car passed it's MOT yesterday without needing further funds spending on it Yay!!!

2. My hubby is managing to paint the fences today Yay!!!

3. The soon to be released new Funky Hand CD arrived on my doorstep yesterday Yay!!!

4. There is a brand new Penny Black challenge for me to take part in. Yay!!!

My great blog buddy Brenda has some mega news. I am so excited and pleased for her. She has been asked to set up a brand new challenge by Penny Black called "Penny Black at Allsorts".

Please make sure you pop over and read what it is all about .. .. after all we can never have too many opportunities to get our Penny Black stamps out can we? and judging by the number of followers the new challenge has already gained I am not the only excited one!!

Well I think that is enough fun and news for one day don't you?

Have a lovely Sunday everyone and I will catch you all again tomorrow.

Love Jules xx

This is a lovely card Jules. Whenever I try to do simple and clean it just looks bare and messy! The image is fab. I'm glad the car passed it's MOT with no extra charges. We seem to be throwing money at ours at the moment, there's always something needing to be replaced.
Have a lovely Sunday,
Nikki x
