Bees and spiders!

I have two cards to show you today. The first is based on Less Is More's delicious colour scheme:

and is also for Simon Says Stamp's and Cute Card Thursday's "anything goes" challenges.

The idea is unashamedly lifted from here on Pinterest - I've been waiting for a chance to make this cracking design since I saw it. My card is not for Hallowe'en though, it is for a friend who has been going through a lot lately,  and I thought it might cheer her up.

The original uses a rather fun stamp to make the spiders, but I didn't have it, so circles, googly eyes and a marker pen did the job just as well.

While I was on Pinterest, as nearly always happens, I came across yet more inspiration and ended up with this for one of our favourite waitresses at our local sushi bar, who is leaving. Cute eh?

These are both fabbie hun! Loving those cute spiders - if they all looked like that I would be fine with them and give them all names. The bees/honey card is so yummy, just needs thickly buttered toast. Hope you are well. Not-quite-so-frizzled-Squirrel xx
