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 all

Well another month has whizzed by and we are round to a fresh "new" challenge over at Get Funky!

This month the challenge has been set by my lovely team mate Tip Top (Ruth) and she would like your creation to be an occassion related to the word "new" .. .. .. as in "new home" or "new baby".

All of the DT have been playiing with the new CD from Anice called "Colour Me Happy" over the past couple of weeks and we all love it so much that I think you will find most (if not all) of the DT used it to create their inspirational work for the challenge this month.

The CD is fab .. .. but we are being naughty and tempting you with it just prior to its release. It will be available to buy very soon so it shouldn't be too long until you can have as much fun as we have been having. Why not become a follower here - then you will get to know as soon as it is released.

Here is my "new" creation which is a wedding invitation and place names for a bride and groom who are starting their "new life" together as man and wife. Oh I am soppy!!!! LOL!!!

My creation used:

Funky Hand CD "Colour Me Happy"
Nestabilities: Large Deckled Rectangles and Classic Heart
X-Cut Flower Punch
Josy Rose Nail Heads
Ribbon from the stash box

Why not enter the challenge this month? The prize is £20 to spend in the Funky Store .. .. you could even buy the new CD with your winnings!!!!

To enter you do need to use at least one digi image or backing paper from Funky Hand but if you don't actually own any just yet then there are some freebies available here.

Come on then .. .. what are you waiting for? Go Get Funky! and crafty.

Have a lovely day everyone. Hubby is out this evening and I am looking forward to a good old blog hop. Haven't been able to visit for a couple of evenings so lots and lots to catch up on .. ..lovely!!!

Take care.

Love Jules xx
