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.

Good Morning Everyone

This week the Allsorts Challenge was set by Emma and you are only allowed to use one of everything .. .. .. .. as in 1 brad, 1 flower, 1 ribbon, 1 button, I designer paper (but this doesn't have to be in one piece), 1 coloured piece of card etc.

There is a fantastic prize on offer this week which will be chosen by random org


Below is my inspiration card:

I lurv my hearts!!! Can you tell?????

Here is what I used:

Designer Paper: Pink Petticoat "Just and Old Fashioned Girl"
Image: Penny Black 3338J "Long Kiss"
Cuttlebug "Textile Hearts" Die and Embossing Folders
Martha Stewart "Lace Doily" Punch
1 flower, 1 Brad, 1 eyelet, one peel off strip, 1 gem, 1 ribbon
Inkssentials Glossy Accents
Craftime Ultra Fine Glitter

It isn't quite as easy as you first think. You just automatically go to use multiples of everything!!

So off you go everyone. Go and be creative and see if you are the lucky person that joins us for two weeks as the Guest DT member.

Have a great weekend everyone.

Love Jules xx
