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.

BRIGHT AND BEAUTIFUL !

Hi Everyone

Well what a treat today is!!

A lovely bright and beautiful day  .. a tad cold in the wind but gorgeous even so.

Then just to make a lovely weekend complete .. .. Anice is giving a whopping 25% off all Funky Hand products .. .. so great offers on the CD's, downloads and stamps .. .. even the fabby Papercraft Factory CDs!!




If you click on the picture above this will take you to the Funky Store for a little gander about .. .. and if you are in Halloween or Christmas mode at the moment then there might be some collections of interest in the download section (the Halloween one is lush!!).

Here is a little look at a card I made using the lovely Papercraft Factory CD .. Happy, Happy Birthday.  It gives you a little look at some of the scrummy papers!!



I will see you tomorrow for the snippet register and a little playground game!!  But for now I need to go out and choose a new washing machine.  My old one is poorly and too expensive for the maintenance people to repair .. .. and thankfully my policy is "new for old" so I can have a replacement.  But do you know the best part?  My maintenance contract only had another two weeks to run .. .. normally it works the other way round .. .. machines break down just after a contract has run out!!
Have a lovely Saturday everyone.  I hope the sun is shining on you.

Love

Hi Jules, what a cheerful card for a fella & gorgeous papers. I had to replace my washing machine last year, that's something we just cannot do without especially in the winter. Good luck on your shopping expedition & lucky you for it still being under contract. Sorry I didn't make it to the playground this week, still busy with crimbo stuff. I've not even made many cards.

Great card Jules! And not the quickest in the World to make either. Hope the washing machine expedition went well - and such luck it not breaking down immediately after the maintenance contract was renewed, or even worse, expired :)) A win, win I think! Love, Di xx
