Booglie Eyes & Ribbon!

Oh my, I REALLY like this adorable ribbon I found at Michael's. It was on a spool of 4 yards for $3.99 (less the 40% for that most valuable coupon!!!)

I think Stampin' Up!'s Booglie Eye set is SO adorable. I'm not a big fan of spiders. Actaully I'm extremly fearful of them. Why I don't know but I am. Though I do have to admit the last time there was one in my house (they're not allowed indoors!!! LOL) I managed to get it in a container and I let it free outside. I figured with the West Nile virus killing off the birds we REALLY need the spiders to help out with the bugs. I use to break down spider webs around the garage and now I leave them. Plus I have better things to do (like stamping) than to go around knocking down spider webs just because I want the back of the garage to look nice.

This is one of those 6" x 3" cards. Cut your card stock 6" x 6" and fold it in half. I did have to purchase special envelopes for them. I hope I find them before Halloween!!! LOL I cut a layer of black, measuring 6" x 2 3/4". I added the ribbon on top of it. I actually taped it in place and then had to remove the tape because it showed right through the sheer ribbon. SO I used the two way glue pen and glued the ribbon at the spiders. That way it woudn't show and it was just enough to hold it in place without the buckling it was doing. I taped the edges to the back and then taped the black piece to the pumpkin pie card stock. I stamped the spider and colored it in. Then I layered it and taped it to the front of the card. A quick and easy Halloween card!!!
I will be posting some blog candy sometime this week. I see my blog is reaching 130,000! It may be early in the week, the numbers are rolling by SO fast!!

Thank you for stopping by,
Wanda

What a cute Halloween card. Using the ribbon as a background is so clever. Now I'll look at wide ribbon in a whole new light.

Ssssooooooooo cute! I love the Booglie Eyes, too. How did I miss that ribbon the last time I was at Michael's? Luckily, it's quite a ways away, or I'd be there all the time. Keep up the wonderful posts.

Cute card:) I don't like spiders either but my room and bathroom is in the cellar so I cannot avoid them. There are loads of them everywhere! I am too chicken to let them out but I only kill those that are next to my bed or large and moving about in the bathroom. The rest I leave in peace.
