A very warm welcome to my teeny, tiny part of the huge world of blogging. This is where I 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 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.

Allsorts Challenge - Week 1

Hello again .. .. .. .. could this be a world first for me - two challenges in one day?!?!?

The Allsorts Challenge Blog started yesterday and their theme was "Sweets".

There is a fantastic prize on offer so I hope too many people don't play this week .. .. .. then I will have a better chance of winning!!! (Selfish and greedy girl .. .. .. I don't deserve to win now!!!).

Here is my creation:

This was made using:

Background paper and image: Pink Petticoat download "Sweet Sundaes"
Glossy Accents to make the cherry on top shine
Glamour Dust
Brads and Ribbon from my stash

I know that an ice cream cone isn't really a sweet (but it is a "sweet treat") - and the little bits of chocolate on the ice cream count as sweets in my book!!! Mmmmm.. .. .. I want one now!!!

I don't want to stop crafting now but unfortunately I have to.

Time to cook the evening meal and then a bit of "blog hopping".

Take care everyone. Hope you all had a great weekend and thanks for calling by.

Love Jules xx

I wish I could make one card as fast as you do Jules, let alone two and both such beauties as well. This is good enough to eat!

I love the way you tie your bows as well. I wish I could tie them as prettily as you.
