Frightfully Delightful!


You're all going to take one look at this card and wonder what I was thinking! LoL :) But, let me explain...

This is my entry in a "Frightfully Delightful Freaky Friday Challenge" at Leigh O'Brien's blog "Sunflower Studio". Her challenge is to use any HALLOWEEN stamp to create a NON-HALLOWEEN card. I thought it sounded like FUN, and even better than that, Leigh is offering an awesome prize to the winner! If you haven't checked out Leigh's blog, you really should. She's amazingly talented and one of the BEST!

Let it be known...I HATE spiders! But, there is something really CUTE and harmless about this one, don't you think? :)

If you read my post yesterday, you're probably wanting to know what great treasures I found when "junkin" with my sister this morning. Well, we had a terrific time and she found quite a few books, most for .25-.50 cents, but I didn't find anything exciting. I bought a couple necklaces for a quarter to recycle the beads in my jewelry making. And I bought an old tin recipe box and some small glass bowls that I didn't need. :) One sale had a bunch of the magnetic rubber stamps by Making Memories and I was tempted, but didn't think I would ever use them. We saw several super cute and creative children's Halloween costumes and I hope someone bought them because they looked like new.

I'm listening to the Nebraska-Texas Tech football game and they just tied it up 31-31! We need a WIN and hopefully will come out on top. GO BIG RED!!!

Good News!
When I filled up my car this morning, gas was down to 2.93! And I had a .15 cent off coupon that brought it to 2.78/gal! That made me SMILE!
Enough rambling now... I should get something else done around here. Have a wonderful weekend!

This is just sooooooo cute, Pam! I am a big fan of Stampendous but I haven't seen that spider before. Might have to go looking for that one. This card has so many terrific details...I just love it! Thanks for playing along with me.
