You don't need a Huge garden either a pot will do for tomartoes you can even grow a few carrots in old pop bottles and good for the kids too to see the roots and food growing (where it comes from) lots of schools are getting involved. I believe that is a good thing!

Finally I wanted some flowers (but they had to be SU) so I made some using the scallop punch and SU carstock with SU buttons, the 3D one could also be a broach to go with your bracelet and if you have a small circle punch you can make matching earrings too! dead simple low cost and very trendy not to mention Unique, no one else will have any the same. I love stamping! it's not just for making cards is it? oh and as I said in the magazine there is a HUGE spread and they use SU stamps to make your tea set unique too! I hope you like this post please leave a comment Love Dawn xx
