Spider Stevie at Digital Delights

Good morning all

Well what an exciting week I've had - and all in the name of craft!
Just got back yesterday from 2 days of fabulous crafting and team building with my lovely Crafters Companion team buddies and a wonderful party night to celebrate Crafters Companion's 10th birthday
It was lovely to meet everyone who had come from far and wide - can't quite remember when Tuesday and Wednesday were quite so much fun! - but it's back to earth with a bump now
- all good things come to an end : )

Anyway back to today!

Its the start of our new challenge at

Digital Delights

with the theme

Anything goes

I have a cute card to share that I've made for my Digital Delights DT card

using the cute Spider Stevie available here

When I decided to make use this image I had in mind a fab spider web stamp to make a background paper - but it appears to have vanished without a trace from my stamp drawer! - not to be put off I decided to use a hessian effect embossing folder that I inked up with  black ink before I embossed it - not quite a spider web but I quite like the effect with the red card - it actually looks better the black ink adds great definition 

Here's what I did....

Wags n Whiskers

Good morning all

greetings from sunny Florida - I've had such a busy few weeks and have been very absent I'm so sorry I haven't been visiting at all lately.  We are here in Florida with our good friends Jan and Tony having a very grown up holiday with no kids or other family in tow  - a real treat for us ....after we got delayed on one flight, missed another then an unexpected stay over in Boston for a night  - then finally the airline lost our bags for 2 days we finally got down to holidaying! 

We did a Segway tour up in lovely Mount Dora today - a bit scary when we first started but we all absolutely loved it- give it a try if you ever get the chance - it's an amazing experience.

Anyway onto today's card - my DT card for Wags'n'Whiskers
