Happy Halloween for Cuttlebug Mania

Eek! Icky, sticky spiders.

If you have arachnophobia, don't look any further!

is Itsy Bitsy Spider

The stamped image was in my UFO (UnFinished Objects) box 
and I have a box of these die cut spiders
(cut with my Big Shot)
stashed away for quick use.

The background is embossed with the retired Stampin' Up! 
Spider Web embossing folder.
(That was in my UFO box too)

As I was drinking my coffee this morning, I looked across the room 
and saw a huge spider, just like this one.  
It was crawling up the side of the crock, slowly, slowly.
I started to grab something to smack him with
when I realized it had fallen off the Halloween tree.
Whew!  So glad it was paper!

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Halloween!

Really fun and spooky card x

Too funny that you were startled by your own paper spider. You know you really shouldn't squish them as their friends will come in to find their lost buddy!
Great card though.

Hello Bonnie

A brilliant Haloween card.

Eeeeek! Spiders do give me the creepy crawlies. But, on a Halloween card, they are just perfect. Fun, cute card you created, Bonnie.
Your Halloween tree is just cute as can be...glad that spider came off it instead of being the real thing.

How festive you are for Halloween, Bonnie! It's really funny that your spiders are so real-looking that they fooled you!! That's a little TOO realistic for me, especially at that size!! Your card is very impressive and classical Halloweenish!! I've missed you! Hugs, Darnell

Sandy said...

So glad you did not have to swipe that paper spider! Your card is wonderful and I love the background!

Great Halloween card - I don't make any myself but I do enjoy seeing the ones others make. Your background is great with the spritzed colours!

Loll Thompson said...

Close call!!! :) I wouldn't have even gone near the thing to figure out if it was real or not ... yikes --- I hate spiders!! But, the one on your card is pretty cute ... from a distance, that is :) xx

Jannie said...

Absolutely perfect Halloween card! Love it, Bonnie! I don't do spiders, so probably couldn't even have the Halloween tree in my house--LOL!

Kimbo said...

Your Halloween card is awesome Bonnie! I don't mind spiders, but they have their place-like on your card! lol I love to that the spider on your crock was a paper spider, how funny because it does look real. I love your Halloween tree, so festive it is!! I was taking a shower one day and as I was finishing up with my hair, I happened to turn my head and something caught my eye. You guessed it. It was a spider coming down on his web and would have landed right on my shoulder! Now I'm not scared of spider, but I don't want to be taking a shower with them either! lol Needless to say he ended up down the drain. Thanks for a fun card and a funny story! Hugs, Brenda
