Sweet Sketch Wednesday #60

Hi Everyone! Happy Monday! Today I want to share this fun spider card with you! I used the brand spankin new stamp set called SPIDER GREETINGS an August new release at Clear Dollar Stamps. I was inspired by this neat dp I found lurking around in the craft room AND by my favorite sketch challenge --
Sweet Sketch Wednesday. This card is a 4 1/4" square. I just love square cards, not only are they so much fun, but easy to measure! hehe ;o)
The sentiment is so perfect for today "Another year creeped by..." it sure did! My son started First Grade today! First Grade?? Where has the time gone?  Well, I guess it 'creeped by' ! haha haha (sobs)
 Thank you so much for stopping by! Next you should head over to Clear Dollar Stamps and check out all this month's new releases!
Details:
Stamps: Spider Greetings (CDS)
Paper: Basic Black, unknown dp
Ink: Momento Tuxedo Black
Coloring Medium: Prismacolors
Tools/Accessories: Spots & Dots Embossing Folder, 
 Tangelo Smoothy Ribbon (clearly coordinating - summer fun),
Circle Nestabilities

Hi Christi, I do love your card yes it my first Halloween card I've seen for the year as well. I do love your colours so bright and cheery. Great job!! Try and 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 gives you that much more room, thats the size that I make, but aren't the square cards great. I know the feeling about sending your son to school, my boys are 11 and 9 I cried when the first one left but I knew the second one was so ready to go. My eldest son goes off to boarding school next year so you will be able to hear me crying from where you live LOL......He'll come home every weekend LOL. Thanks so much for joining us this week and hope to see you next week.
Take care
