Helping in the garden!

This month’s Stamp of the Month for the From the Heart Stamps challenge features a not so helpful helper in the garden!

Materials used: SAM_2648(watermarked)
From  The Heart Stamp of the Month – Digging Dog
X-Press It stamping card
square card blank folded to make an easel card
Adorable Scoreable card left over from a kit
gold mirri card
bone charm
hexagan cutting dies
Copic pens

I used two copies of the main image, cutting the dog out of the second copy and attaching it ontop of the base image with gel glue.

The Adorable Scoreable card has been lanquishing in a draw for month and months so it was great to be able to put it to use at last!

I made this card for my husband whose birthday is at the end of the month. We do not have a dog, just a cat that on occasions thinks he’s a dog! But Tim is in charge of the garden and I thought he would enjoy the funny side of the card.

The challenge at From the Heart goes on all month so there is still plenty of time for you to join in. If you do you will get the image for April free of charge, so you could say everyone’s a winner!

Thanks for popping in. Take care.


I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Whimsy Stamps #91 – Anything Goes
Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps  Wonderful Wednesday – March Anything Goes



About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
