Jeepers Creepers! ! !
Yesterday, when I was pulling weeds in my flower garden, I saw the BIGGEST, ugliest spider ever! First, I saw the huge web and then it moved and I couldn't help but scream! I *hate* spiders! So, why would I even consider buying a spider stamp?! Good question! :)
But, this little spider is sort of *cute*... and harmless! The wood mounted stamp is from the Stampendous Window Art Collection and appropriately named "Spider Window". I embossed it with Stampin Up detail black embossing powder and colored with prismacolor pencils.
The shimmer glitter background paper is by Heidi Grace Designs - Jeepers Creepers/Candy Corn. The tag is punched from another pattern - Halloween Circles with Glitter. At first I thought the candy corn ribbon might be a bit much, but my sweet DIL, Jami at Crazy Daisy Creations gave it to me and I wanted to use it! I *love* candy corn and I'm really craving it after making this card! It's a good thing I don't have any right now because I would probably eat the entire bag! :)
I'm SO excited that my sister Judy from California is coming tomorrow! Yay! : ) I'll pick her up at the airport in Omaha and then maybe we'll go to lunch somewhere by Village Point Mall so I can make a stop at Archivers. She doesn't stamp or scrapbook, but there are a LOT of other cool shops out there too.
Have a terrific week everyone! Smiles, Pam :)
