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.

TOO BEAUTIFUL TO COVER UP!

Hi Everyone

I hope your Thursday has been good.  

Mine has been super busy ..  .. but still time for a little share.

When I was linking up the Pink Petticoat papers for the card I shared on Tuesday I had a very pleasant surprise when I saw there was a new paper pack release .. and how gorgeous and beautiful it was.  I downloaded it instantly and printed off all the papers in the collection first thing yesterday morning .. .. I drooled over them for a while but sadly had to put them to one side until there was time to put them to good use.

I picked my favourite tonight and then decided it was too lovely to cover up ..  .. so I have gone for a card that left the majority of the paper on view:



This used:

Image:  Pink Petticoat "Strawberry Blooms Pattern Paper Pack"
Sentiment:  Computer Generated
Woodware Punch:  Heart
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Lace from my Stash Box

Isn't it super scrummy!?!?!  I would love my bedroom walls wallpapered in this pattern with a quilt cover and matching pillow cases . .. .. but I would draw the line at bedroom curtains .. .. I think that might be "overkill".

But this is only one of the papers .. .. there are others I could use for the curtains LOL!!!

Enjoy the rest of your evening everyone.

Love

It is the bestest, most awesomest paper for sure! You used a snippet of it on a later card and I thought it was the bestest and most awesomest then. As lovely as it is I'd have to pass on having it in the bedroom. It might give hubby "the vapors."
