Creeping Spiders

Hello hello!

Today is Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge day, and here is today's sketch:

I think you might see a last surge of Halloween projects here before the big day! Here's my card for today.

Can I tell you something? If it hasn't stolen your heart already, you need Text It. Please trust me, it just makes my crafty little heart so happy, and I want you to be happy too! :)

I combined the loopy script font from Text It with the polka dots from Offbeat Backgrounds to create some super fun patterned paper. The spiders and sentiment are from Halloween Party.

Thank goodness for these stamps, you know? I've seen a trend in my stamping recently and I think stamping my own backgrounds is keeping me sane. The sketch challenge will remain open until Thursday, 11:59 EST. You can link up your entry on the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge Blog. Top Mice will be announced along with the new sketch next Saturday! Be sure to visit the blog and check out what the other DT members and Mischief Makers have created for the sketch challenge!

I hope you have a wonderful weekend, friends, and thank you for your visit today!
