MMSC18 Spooky Halloween Spider in the Pumpkin Patch




I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend!  Unfortunately, those long weekends still somehow seem to fly by so quickly.  I am noticing here where I live that leaves have been falling to the ground quicker now and there is quite a chill in the morning and evening air. 

In trying to keep with the time of year and Halloween on the horizon, I chose another image from DRS...our awesome sponsor this month...for this card.  I really love this image of the Pumpkin Patch Family.  I added just a bit of scarey to my card though by threading some furry yarn through the eyelets to create a spider web that a very spooky and fuzzy spider with big googly eyes is lurking from.  I made it a bit fun with the candy corn dp and some sparkle throughout.  So, really...even though this is suppose to be sort of scarey, aren't those pumpkins so happy, cute and fun?  Even the spider is a little bit cute.

Hey sister of mine!!!! Another fabulous creation you have here....great choice in image too!!!! I love how your card came out..the webbing is a fantastic idea that gives it a true Halloween feel to it. Even though I don't like spiders, I have to say yours is cute and fits perfectly with the webbing and pumpkins. The inside is as adorable as the outside. You are an incredible inspiration and I'm so happy we have such similar taste.
Hugs,

I love this card! Some of those pumpkins look a little goofy and not scary at all... wonder if they'll look that happy when the spider gets in there with them? *shiver*.....
