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

August already (white rabbits) .. .. .. and time for another Funky Hand challenge over at "Get Funky!"

It is an extra special challenge this month because "Get Funky!" is one year old today


To celebrate, on top of the normal £20 gift voucher, there is also a special gift for every entrant .. .. but you do need to follow the three rules that are listed here to be eligible. The birthday gift is a special download at the end of the month.

So, on to this month's challenge.

This has been set by my lovely teamie Dolly and her theme is POCKETS.

Here is my creation .

This used:

Papers: All from the Funky Hand "Colour Me Happy" CD
"L" Plate made using one of the letters from the CD
Sentiment: Computer Generated
Woodware Punch: Large label
Sizzix Die: "655009" Pocket
Key: Cut freehand and chain "borrowed long term" from our key box

You can see all the inspiration from the rest of the Funky Gang here.

I hope you get chance to play along with us.

Happy Sunday everyone.

Love Jules xx
