Hello :) Poppy and I do hope you had a lovely Easter time with lots and lots of yummy choccies?
It's that time of year when we start to venture outdoors to do jobs such as mowing, window cleaning and car washing and what do we find - Spiders! Love them or loathe them they seem to be everywhere, I read somewhere on the internet, so it must be true lol, that for every person on Earth there are 500.000 spiders!!!
Right back to stamps, it's Wednesday which can mean just one thing, a new challenge at Stampotique yay ;) all the details can be found here, this week our hostess is Coby, (check out her blog here), and here is what she has to say:
' I love stitches in my creations, some times stamped, sometimes made with the hand and sometimes with the sewing machine. I challenge you to use stitches in your creations.... '
My inspiration came from my best muse, Poppy. If she spots a spider, or any crawling insect, on the floor or walls she freezes to the spot and just looks at the bug, looks at me, looks at the bug, looks at me as if to say 'Are you going to get this or what?', she isn't happy till I've despatched the bug in some way. Yet one of her favourite doggy friends is a Great Dane which is huge!
I made this card for a dog/spider lover using the following Stampotique stamps:
and Polka Dots
I used a metallic thread for the stitches of the web and simply added legs and eyes to the polka dots to make eyes. Don't you just love the word discombobulated??
Wishing you a lovely day, Sam xxx
