I’m Ready for Halloween: Hangin’ with Mr. Whimsie Spider

G’day friends. Thanks for hanging around and sticking it out with me. 😉 Cheesy line much – but it’s sooo fitting for the card I’m showcasing! So first and foremost, do you see the fake gourds and orange lilies in the background of that photo? Yes – I have a funny story about those. I know that most of you are trying to enjoy the last bits of summer, but I am ready for Fall now! I made Beau go shopping with me for Fall decorations the other night. I’ve been looking high and low and was absolutely delighted when I saw an aisle at Wal-Mart. It appears that the stores are still in summer and back to school mode and unfortnately (lol) I will have to wait a bit before the Fall stuff arrives.

Oh and fyi – I still haven’t figured out what to dress up as for Halloween yet! Egads, this cannot be. I need to sit down and do some researching soon. For all those who think I am silly, I know – but I can’t help loving this fun and frightful holiday! 😉 Do you have any ideas for me?

When I saw the Hanging Around image, I knew I had to make a suspension card to emphasize the spider hanging on from a web. It was a fairly easy card to make: I inserted the green brads onto the damask paper and then layered it on top of the black cardstock. Use the scallop circle die cut to make the window. Add the spider web paper to the inside. Add your layered sentiment to the middle and tie a ribbon with a bow to the top or the card.

Voila, c’est fini! I hope you love this card as much as I do and please stop by soon again!

Supplies: Paper: Bazzill cardstock, Making Memories Spellbound pattenered paper. Accessories: Copic markers, Michael’s ribbon, dollar store brads, string, Spellbinder’s Nestabilities scallop circle, Stickles glitter glue, white gel pen.
