along came a spider....

...that sent her screaming out of the bathroom.
No, I realize that isn't quite how the poem goes but that was pretty much how the story went in my household today. Welcome spring! Welcome insects! and welcome spiders! Yuck! We found our first spider today in the shower. I am deathly afraid of spiders. The little teeny tiny ones I can handle, but the big ones...they freak me out. I'm always afraid they're going to jump on my hand or something. And we don't even have the really big spiders here. Those HUGE spiders that you all have in the warmer climates.... my skins crawing even thinking it about it right now. ick! So the spider is now gone, I now have a few extra grey hairs and I came up with the sentiment for the card that was sitting on my desk.
I started this card for Kristina Werner's color challenge for this week of brown, orange, yellow and white. The colors just said Halloween to me, so I reached for a pack of SEI Halloween papers and went with it. The spider was cut from one of the sheets of paper. And then it sat on my desk waiting for a sentiment. Do I stamp Boo on it? Or how about Eek? The spider incident today made me think of the poem, perfect sentiment for the card.

LOVE the card!!! This one has to make Kristina's favorites. Still smiling from seeing it. I have the same sentiments as you on spiders. Clever idea and saying.

OMG! I'm deathly afraid of spiders too. Even this card freaked me out, LOL! I must say though, that is so cool how you made the spider. This card is awesome!!

Ewww @ the spider incident!

The card, however, is great. I think "Boo!" would be good on it.

Oh my gosh Wendy, I am the exact same way!! I don't mind spiders, but I hate those delicate bugs (don't know what they are called) but they are brown and slender and have dainty wings...they thrive in bright light and warm weather! They storm into my house in hurds! They're just gross! Love your card for the challenge...EEK sounds good! SEI has great papers!
