Incy Wincy Spider...

Yesterday I went down to our local shops with Mr 2 and Miss 4. We were in Cotton On Kids at one point and Mr 2 saw a black shirt with a red-back spider on it and was very excited about it. He doesn't often get enthused about clothing, well other than his Bob 'Billa Bulla' shirt (aka Bob The Builder ;-). Anyway I got him the shirt, and later I was thinking about how easy it would be to make a spider using our Stampin' Up! punches. So today, I did!

It is a bit of an odd card, probably not everyone's cup of tea:

The colours are Basic Black, Real Red and Whisper White. I've used the Cheesecloth background stamp in Real Red ink on the Real Red layer. Black brads in the corners, black and white gingham ribbon, and a whole bunch of punches for spidey.

While I was outside taking photos I thought I'd get a shot of my new fishies...another lovely pressie I got for my birthday. We have lots of bits and pieces like this scattered around our garden. I love it!

Only 5 more sleeps till SPRING starts! Yippppeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.
