Ohmigosh...Spider alert!!

Seriously!!!....look how big this guy is! {{{shudder}}}  My daughter and I were sitting on the couch the other night when my husband said 'Hey, there's a spider running right for you''ve never seen two people move so fast as Brandy and I! 

We had to move the couch, LilyBean ran right over top of the huge spider, we had the giant flashlight out and Brandy caught it in a glass.....oh my....this guy is so big he could be wearing boots!  At least he didn't have hairy legs!!! 

As much as I don't like spiders...well I like cardstock spiders and of course stamped spiders ...we just can't kill them, so Brandy tossed it out in the garden!  I just hope he doesn't find his way back in again!  It always seems that as Fall approaches those crazy spiders want to find a way to come into the house...I'll be on the lookout from now on!


Is he not seriously scary??  I keep thinking what if Gary hadn't noticed him....would he have crawled on us....Omigosh...I can't think about it!  LilyBean is not really a spider do you train your cat to do that??? 
That's your shiver for today!!
Thanks for stopping by ~ Judy..who's now paranoid and on the lookout for anymore spiders!

Another Anniversary!

Ta da....another Anniversary to celebrate!

This is a card I made for my wonderful Sister of the Heart and her husband.  They celebrated their anniversary last week and I know they enjoyed their special day!  I had so much fun making this card for them!!

I used Very Vanilla cardstock and matted it on Black, then I inked up the front of the card with the medallion stamp from Artistic Etchings.

The main focal point of the card is a piece of the fabulous Newsprint Designer Paper.  I used the Scallop Edge punch to place behind this piece.  Then I used the Oval Punch and the Scallop Oval Punch for the sentiment.  I punched out some hearts in Real Red using the Heart to Heart punch and then I used the Black Satin ribbon and made a bow....using a fork!!  Honestly it makes a perfect bow every time! 

This bow is not my invention...I've seen it so much lately on the internet and had to try it! I'd love to give credit to the genious who came up with this great technique so if you know who the original creator is, please let me know so I can give proper credit!!

I love this card!  And I love this new stamp set!  Hopefully I will be able to do a picture tutorial on how to make this bow as soon as I have an extra set of hands!  This bow has such a crazy really needs a new name because it makes a fabulous, perfect bow...every time!

Thanks for stopping by and sharing your time with me!

Where am I...

LOL!! Where am I? I am!!!!  Wow...that was a super long time that I haven't posted to my blog! I'm not sure if you missed me or not {g} but I missed you!!

I've been busy with summer things, enjoying the warm weather and my air conditioning (!!), a lovely summer wedding, a couple of anniversaries, birthdays, family times and lots of BBQ's and a very fun Stamp class.  I hope you've all been having a great summer too!  This coming week we're off to the Okanagan for the last summer get away...I honestly can't believe it's nearly September! 

Here's a little share of the anniversary card I made for our daughter and son in law, they just celebrated their 3rd anniversary this month!  Wishing them many more happy years to come!! 


Here's how I made it: 
Whisper White and Black Cardstock, Cuttlebug embossing folders, Stampin'Up! Heart Punch and Heart Embosslit, Large Oval  and Scallop Oval punches, Black gel pen for the buttons, computer generated sentiment, organza ribbon.  The bow tie is made from the heart punch, I cut it freehand and added rhinestones to the other heart!  Hope you like it!

Thanks for stopping by...enjoy the last days of August!!
