Along came a spider...

Ok, so I hate Halloween. Sorry, but it's the truth.  Like many, many Brits, my mother was dead against the whole trick-or-treating thing, so I've never been.  So come October 31st, I usually switch off all the lights in the house and hide in the back room...
BUT... I really love the cute little stamps in THIS Halloween set!  
Dilemma.
So I decided to get it, and try to use the stamps on non-Halloween cards instead.
Here is my first attempt :)

Also love THIS background stamp... so versatile.
Friday tomorrow.
Yay!!!

Ok, so now you have been brave enough to come out over the whole halloween thing I'll 'fess up too: I'm not big on halloween either! And this is from someone who has dressed as a witch, a zombie, a ghostbuster etc etc year after year at the library. Have to say though I do love those stamps... and your card is totally fabulous! Hugs, Jo x

I love Halloween and it's not even celebrated over here! And I adore Halloween stamps and paper.
I like the card, cute spider.

We don't have Halloween in Indonesia, so growing up I never celebrate it. And yes, hubby & I hide, too at Halloween eve, although our neighborhood is pretty quiet anyway. Love the card. It's cute!

Great use of the stamps for non- halloween. We don't really celebrate too much here in NZ - definitely no cards anyway... sometimes the littles come trick or treating....

Yay!! Thanks for taking the stand and confessing :o)
As a fellow Brit and living here in the USA, I still find it hard to comprehend the positive frenzy Halloween causes here in Corpus Christi (not sure if it is the same in the rest of USA). Adults especially, in fact, at work it is the most sought after night off - in the whole year!!!!
Love the card, Lucy. Great job. The line of sewing is perfect for dangling y our cute little chap :o)

Love, love, LOVE your card. The stitched web-line is brilliant.
I'm no fan of Hallowe'en but my kids love it. I think adults go way overboard, but that could be my "I-don't-like-Hallowe'en-side" talking :)
Your card is perfect for a non-Hallowe'en card though. Nice alternate use for that spider. He's a cutie!
God Bless, Cynthia

I'm not a big fan of making Halloween cards, per se, but I do just love watching the little kiddies pick up their candy. hehe. Super cute how you've incorporated the spider into a non-Halloween theme!

I don't like Halloween, either (my LEAST favorite "holiday")! But this card is so cute!!!!!

Aimes said...

Tee hee! I think I'd have caved in for that stamp too!
I never really celebrated Halloween either but my nieces and nephews do so who am I to argue when it comes to sampling the treats for them *wink*
Have a super weekend!
Hugs,
