Hello!  It’s challenge introduction day at Cards in Envy!  We are starting to get into a Halloween mood with the theme of “Creepy Crawlies”.  Cards for this challenge should feature any kind of creepy creature that crawls or slithers.  Snakes, spiders, or any sort of bug would all be appropriate.  Be sure to make your card A2 sized (4.25″ x 5.5″) and thin enough to be mailed at the standard first class postage rate.

I personally am not a fan of crawly creepy stuff, so I wanted to keep my card as friendly-seeming as possible.  My stamp choices were pretty limited, but I pulled out a set of Halloween stamps that I bought a long time ago and used the spider from it.  I stamped the spider image several times, colored them, and then drew in the threads so it looked like they are all dangling.  I spelled out an encouraging sentiment with alphabet stamps, because I’m planning to include this card in my first shipment to Send a Smile 4 Kids.  Finally I matted the panel and attached it to a card base.
