A special visiter...

Well yesterday I had a special visitor in my shower... No, not that kind, get your head out of the gutter. I saw this scary spider on my bathrobe, luckily before I put it on. Talk about jump starting your heart in the morning!!!

This incident gave me inspiration to use some of my new halloween goodies that had arrived the day before. Although I may not be completely arachnophpic, I knew I had to use my Arachnophobia wheel. And to stick with the spider theme, I finished it off by using a few stamps from Eat, Drink & Be Scary.

In order to get just the little spider in all 4 corners of my Old Olive piece, I used my Stampin' Write marker to color in just the cute spider. I then used my Stamp-a-Ma-Jig to get the allignment just right. Also, to get my wheel images perfectly straight and lined up correctly, I used Stampin' Around Wheel Guide.

Well I'm off to create another special card. My inspiration today... Seahawks season opener!!! Go NFL!!! :)

OOweee, pooh, icky spider, gives me the creeps. On the other hand the card is super duper cute. Love your idea of putting the spiders 1 in each corner. You have talent.
