Be Humorous was the challenge at Crafting with Dragonflies this time

Those who know me know I cannot go too far away from a good pun. I saw this one on a card in the village of Richmond, visiting there with a good friend. We had a lovely day out - eating, shopping talking, shopping, talking, eating.....you get the gist.



I came home and started to make this card but again got waylaid by visitors and family - lovely to see them all, but of course it made me late again for Crafting with Dragonflies!

But....here it finally is.....
My take on the commercial card I saw


We have a mutual friend who has just moved house, so it will be ideal for her!


Privet hedge sticks and gold wire but I am afraid I am not good at winding the wire around neatly.


My house is from a stamp step by Waltzing Mouse, coloured with Copics and fussy cut out, and mounted on dimensionals.


There is a double layer on the porch

Some 'grass' to cover up the sticking of the sticks to the card

I was going to use the computer to generate the sentiments, but just ran out of time
So - handwritten!


Hope you enjoy the visual pun and am inspired to go over to Hilde's new post at

Love the addition of real sticks! Great pun. Hope your friend's move went well. Bet this gave her a chuckle.
