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 and welcome to the second Funky Hand blog hop!!!

If you have visited my blog not via the blog hop and would like to take part then you need to start at the very beginning by visiting our lovely Funky Hand Boss Lady .. .. .. Anice. 

Anice will explain everything you need to be doing. 

Our blog hop is to showcase two new downloads that are being released today .. ..
we all "love them both to pieces" and are sure you will too!! 

My creation here has been made with the Steam Funk download
(which includes both the gorgeous papers and the cool alphabet which I cut up into funky shapes).

You should have arrived at my blog via my lovely teamie Ruth who will have shared a fabby make with you, and a magic letter which you will need later. 

The letter that you need from my blog is the letter


and from here you need to hop along to the next Funkette .. .. who is the lovely Lou

You have until midnight, Sunday 15th January, to leave your answer with Anice
 and the winner will receive a copy of both of the downloads.  Woo hoo!!!

Best of luck everyone and happy weekend and happy hopping

Unusual colour combination but it works really well. I like the idea of cogs to represent time.
