Creeping By to Say Hi



A new sketch challenge is up over at Skipping Stones Design -- hope you'll join in the fun!

My sample features a set called Halloweenie, on sale all month long for $12.49! Both the creepy spider image (um, arachnophobe here! :shivers:) and the sentiment are from Halloweenie. I isolated just the word "hi" for the star accent and also stamped the full sentiment repeatedly on the scalloped strip. The spider is stamped onto a text print. The papers are all from My Mind's Eye's Mischievous collection.


Here's what we're playing with this week:


And here's a look at Halloweenie (love the "BOO" poem!):

A great "creepy" card! I love the spider. I don't think I've ever seen a granddaddy longleg spider as a stamp. Even though they are harmless, they make my skin crawl! Ewwwww!

I LOVE this. I love that you stopped a straight stitch and turned it into zigzag....nice touch. The scalloped border really sets it off too. Thanks so much for all of your fabulous sketches. I hate to see them end. Thanks Amy!!!
