My photo
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

I hope your Saturday has been a good one .. .. not sure where mine went!  I think I blinked and missed it.

The plan was to tie lots of ribbons .. .. but I haven't tied anywhere near enough!!  Never mind tomorrow is another day.

Here is my share for today using another of the lovely images from a retiring set over at Pink Petticoat .. .. and even the papers are retiring.  One of my favourite backing paper collections too!!  

This used:

Image and Sentiment:  Pink Petticoat "Diva Doodles"
Backing Paper:  Pink Petticoat "Perfect Papers"
Ribbon, charm, cord and gems from my stash box

and that is me for today.

Time for a relax now!!

Catch you tomorrow with my snippets.

Hi Jules, lovely, elegant card using PP image and papers. Liz is certainly retiring a lot! I spent ages going through my PP CDs and digi downloads to see what I did and didn't have from the 'retiring list'.

Hope you've recovered from the cough that those pesky germs brought over the festive season.
