I Really HATE Spiders!

     I hate spiders, I really do.  I can't even stand looking at photographs of real ones and I definitely don't want to see them creepy-crawling up the wall or across the floor.  But when I saw this freebie image from Judy at Blue Jeans, Coffee and Friends, this goofy little spider was so cute, I just had to use him for this card.  Thanks, Judy!!

     I bravely grabbed my ProMarkers and colored him up, adding sparkle gel ink to the web.  Then I cut the image piece into a simple square and offset it onto four layers of textured CS.  I added the two ribbons and tied a double bow.  The final touch was the sentiment, printed and added above the spider.  A very simple design, worthy of a spider who scares off everything else.  :-D

     This is the last of the 10 cards I had to make for a neighbor and, since she's paying me for them, I've agreed to swap out any she may not like with ones I've made (or will make) for my own family.  That way, I know she's absolutely happy with everything she gets.  Her only instructions amounted to giving me the genders and ages of her grandkids and two nieces.   Not a lot of information on which to build but I think she'll like what I take to her.  You'll see most of the others over the next couple of weeks, as I have time to get them posted.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie


  1. I'm with you on spiders but this one is very cute and would not hurt a fly let alone us. LOL You were very generous with your arrangements with your neighbor, but I can't imagine she would not like any of your cards. Have a fun day.

  2. That's a great way to use the little guy! I also downloaded him but haven't figured out where to put him just yet. That's the only kind of spider I like--a digital one!

  3. He's the most adorable spider I've ever seen! Love all the layers on your card.

  5. AWE! This makes me smile!! I love this Connie!! Yes, I concur with you on the spiders AND crickets...but if they look like this on a card...I'm more than happy with that! :) So fun!! HUGS
