My photo
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.

Hi Everyone

Wow!!  Early again for me.

This posting with my dinner is certainly working .. .. let's hope it becomes a good habit LOL!!

I decided to move on and have a play with the next of the new colours from the huge Pink Petticoat download that I told you about here.

Pink again .. .. but this time I used Sweet Bohemia .. .. mmm... wonder which of the remaining six new colours I will be going for next .. .. it would be rude not to have a play with them all don't you think LOL!!

So here is my share for today - with the image being coloured as my hubby was getting ready for work at 7.30am this morning.

This used:

Image:  Teddy Bo & Co "Fairy Bea"
Sentiment:  Pink Petticoat
Backing Papers:  Pink Petticoat
ProMarkers and Chalk
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Fiskars Punch:  Oval (no special die to back the oval  .. I just stuck the sentiment onto my coloured card and cut around it with my Mum's old pinking shears).
Glamour Dust
Ribbon, Charm and Cord from the Stash Box

It would appear that I have been giving everyone torture treatment with yesterday's heart (or to make matters even worse "hearts" as there are loads and loads of them).  I am starting to feel a bit bad in case they were not that easy for you to see.  Are were they only obvious to me because I knew where the little blighters were hiding?

Well to put you out of your misery here are just "a few of them"   all the way along the ribbon. Sorry folks if you lost any sleep

Won't get away with using that ribbon again will I?  LOL!!

Have a good rest of the day.

Catch you again soon.

Absolutely gorgeous image - and coloured beautifully. I am so impressed with your scissor skills and the oval. I've got my mum's old pinking shears but I know I couldn't get it that even. I'm going to have a play none the less.
