Spooooky....

When Mary emailed us and asked us all for ideas for the new fall line, I jumped right in and suggested a cutesy spider. Now this coming from a girl who is terrified of spiders might be a bit of a surprise, but when you make them super cute, I'm sucked in. So much to my great delight when the new stamps arrived on my doorstep a cutsey spider was included!

I also happened to be shopping at AC Moore on Saturday and came across this small carvable pumpkin, I'd seen big ones before, but never a little one. I just knew that it and the spider stamp went together.




Imagine I had an idea of something a bit spookier but how could this little guy ever be scary? No way! And of course I started out thinking just the spider inside and some ribbon and it spiraled out of control!


The little boo stamp also comes in the set with the spider I used my xacto knife to make thin slits to stick the transparency into. I also stamped the spider on transparency with staz-on, and colored on the back of the image with galaxy markers that don't smear on shiny surfaces.


Plenty of coloring on the pumpkin and added ribbons with cute Halloween buttons finish the look!
