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.

FIRST FUNKY HAND BLOG HOP .. .. WOO HOO!!!



Hi Everyone

Welcome to our very first Funky Hand blog hop!!

If you arrived here simply because you love my blog (LOL!!) and came to see what I have been up to then "hi, nice to see you" .. .. .. but now you are here why not take part in the blog hop where you can win a copy of the brand new Funky Hand Papercraft Factory Christmas CD that is soon to be released called




To take part in the blog hop then you need to start at the very beginning and find out what you need to do by visiting the lovely Anice on her blog here.

however

If you are already hopping along as part of the blog hop you will have arrived here after collecting a letter from my lovely Funky Hand buddy Jackie.

How are you doing collecting your letters?  Does it make any sense yet? 

Before I share my letter though I will share the project that I made using the lovely design papers from the new CD alongside the pillow box and label template that is on there too.




I know the CD is themed for Christmas but I think my project goes to show that the CD isn't "just" for Christmas makes.

The CD itself is released on the 5th November but you can pre-order one today and also see it being showcased on Create and Craft on Wednesday, 9th November at 8.00am and 1.00pm.

Remember you need to be collecting letters as you move along the hop and leave a comment for everyone before finally leaving your answer with Anice.  Otherwise you aren't "in it to win it". 

So what is the letter you are needing from me .. .. .. well it is the 19th letter of the alphabet !! 

Tee hee!!!  I can see you using your fingers to work it out !!!  and now you have done that you need to leave me a comment before heading off to my next Funky playmate Tip Top Ruth so you can find her letter and see what she made using the fabby new CD.

Have a wonderful weekend and best of luck on the hop.  I wonder who the lucky winner will be?

Love
