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

I am hoping that Mr Blogger is my friend and is posting whilst I am relaxing in (hopefully) sunshine!

We had lots and lots of entries in last week's Allsorts Challenge - thank you everyone who took part. It was a very popular theme.

This week the DT were very fortunate to be given a wonderful download from Liz at Pink Petticoat to work with called "Big Fella". Wow what a wonderful download it is too -thank you Liz x).

There is a free download available as a prize from Pink Petticoat this week - with the added twist that if you use pink petticoat products to make your entry you can add the link to your entry twice on Mr Linky and have double the chance to win a fab download.

I created a card for my youngest son to give his "big bro" as it will be his 30th birthday whilst we are all away on holiday.

This used:

Pink Petticoat Download "Big Fella" (all papers used on this card are from the kit)
Cuttlebug "star" die
Cricut for "no. 30" (can't believe I will soon have a son this old!!!)
Spellbinders Nestabilities "Large Deckled Rectangles"
Diamond Stickles
iskars "small star" punch

I am sorry that I am not going to get chance to visit your entries this week - but my fellow team members will be popping along to check your creations out.

Have a lovely weekend everyone.

Love Jules xx

Oh Jules, I love this card, its so stylish and masculine without looking like the 'normal' blokey styles!

Nice one Jules, hope Paul likes it, sure he will.

Not that I am envious or anything because it is cold and windy here, but guess it's lovely and warm weather where you are. Did I mention I am not envious ?

Have fun, I know you were ready for a holiday.
